Support of 3rd Party Componets (DevExpress)

Post by CookieMonster » Wed Aug 16, 2006 7:28 am

Is it planed in Ranorex to support 3rd Party Componets e.g. from DevExpress or Component One?
I made a small application with a few Windows.Forms Controls, and it was possible to automate them, but I had no chance to automate 3rd Party Componets from DevExpress. Ranorexspy didn't recognize them.

Ranorex supports active accessibility, you can automate every control and every element of a control that support active accessibility.
The developer should set the properties AccessibleRole and AccessibleName properties of the controls and control items.

Some user reported, that RanorexSpy didn't recognize a control, but they could automate them. Try to dump out all elements of the control.
See RanorexVS2005Sample for the function DumpElementTree.

Automating DevExpress Controls

We also are having troubles seeing and controlling DevExpress controls in Delphi application. We read your thread about the AccessibleRole and name properties but can't seam to find those properties. Could you please be more specific on how we can expose the DevExpress controls to our Ranorex Framework?
