RanoreX WPF Object identification issues

Post by BrentMclauchlan » Mon Jan 26, 2015 12:40 pm

Hi there

We have an in house built application that uses WPF and I'm having problems getting RanoreX to identify the objects. What info can I pass along to the developers to aid in making the various items within the application easier for RanoreX to identify and thereby automate with.

I would suggest you to start with this blog post...
http://www.ranorex.com/blog/enabling-au ... s-controls

Basically, Ranorex struggless to identify elements with no or improperly implemented accessibility. Unfortunately, many 3rd party GUI controls are build with no or very limited accessibility support. The above mentioned blog should help your developers to add accessibility to these controls.

Please add these details to your questions:
  • Ranorex Snapshot. Learn how to create one >here<
  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration
