Scaping Text off a Window

Post by atom » Wed Dec 10, 2008 4:39 pm


Im working with a custom made menu control
I would like to get the list of all available options on the menu

Is there a way to scrape all the text of a Form into a string
Other automation tools have a kind of screen scrape function

Generally, Ranorex supports reading text values from menu items or other windows controls. But there is no out of the box solution provided to get these information all together. So, you'll have to implement some code to iterate through your application to collect text values.
