Accessing SwingObjects using FindAllChildren



I have a input field with sys.Process("some property").SwingObject("some property").SwingObject("some property").SwingObject("input field name","",0) in the Test Project.

I need to access the last SwingObject in the above path.


I first want to find all the children of the sys.Process including all the child/grand child swing objects and then use index to perform operations on those objects.


p = Sys.Process("xyz");

let pp = p.FindAllChildren(" "," ",7); //tried adding javafullclassname property but didn't work

if (pp.length > 0){

for (i = 0; i < pp.length; i++){

    .FindAllChildren(" "," ",7)

    The above line of code says: "Find all children up to the depth of 7 that have property with the name <one space> and the value of this property equals to <one space>".

    I bet no such object exists in your application.

    If you like to get all children up to level 7, then provide a property that exists for any object and indicate that it may have any value. E.g.: .FindAllChildren("name","*",7)

    If you like to get just input fields, the code might be like this: .FindAllChildren("input field name","*",7)

      Hi TestQA1 , I see that you replied straight to the email notification, this way your reply won't be posted to the community.

      Here's your reply:




      I'm sorry I should have entered property name and value in FindAllChildren, just left it blank for the post, in actual I put the property and the value in real code. What I'm trying to do is to get all children on the user credentials dialog and then extract username and password based on index. Javafullclassname property is available for username and password field and for the dialog that contains those field has AWT properties.
