Ranorex v6.2.1 Spy

Post by HBu » Mon Feb 25, 2019 8:14 am

I'm working with Ranorex Spy and looking for configuration of the Spy for usage with Siemens PLS 7-1500 UI in a Windows Environment.
I like to find objects by Object ID and if possible Elements ID belongen by the object. :)

I’m afraid, Ranorex 6.2.1 is way too old and no longer supported. So the first thing you should try, is most recent Ranorex 9.0 (even in trial mode). If Ranorex spy does not provide any additional details from your app, you should try MS Inspect tool. If this tool does not provide any additional details (compared to Ranorex output), then there is most probably nothing Ranorex folks can do about it. Simply, the app is most probably not written with accessibility or automation on mind. The only other thing you can do is to try GDI capture approach (see Ranorex help), which can extract some additional RAW texts from the app. But you should not expect any miracles ;)
