Fail to get Treeview array values

Hi,

I have problem to get values from a teeview array, I can see the array created in the debug window but i'm failing to get the actuall value fro array items.

 

the code line i'm using to create the array is 

PatternsNumber = Aliases.CCM.BreadScrumbTree.AutomationPatternsControl.Tree.FindAll("ClrClassName", "TreeViewItem", 1)  and i'm using something like PatternsNumber [0].DataContext.DisplayName to get the string name display in the UI. that doesn't get anything.

 

Anyone knows why?

 

Thanks

Re: Fail to get Treeview array values

Are you sure that FindAll is returning a non-empty array?  I'd put a breakpoint in there somewhere and inspect PatternsNumber after the FindAll call and make sure that there are contents in there.  Also, what language are you writing in? Is this JScript, C++Script or C#Script?  If so, note the following remarks from the documentation.

Result Value

An array of the objects that have the specified values of the specified properties. The returned collection includes the testObj object if it matches the search conditions.

Note for JScript, C#Script and C++Script users: The array returned by the FindAll method is in the safe array format, which is not compatible with standard JScript arrays. To use such an array in JScript, C#Script or C++Script code, you need to convert it to the native format using the toArray method of the variant array (see the examples below).

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

Re: Problem getting item value from treeview

Hi Robert,

 

I'm using java script and did saw the comment you attached and did tried to use it (not sure i did it properly thou).

When the script run I did put a breakpoint exactly after the array is being created but, when looking on the variable in the watch list I can expand it and see the array items (tc says their type is string) but when trying to display one of the items for example PatternsNumber (0).Name etc. TC doesn't show any text

 

Can you please confirm the way i used to convert the array is correct?

 

please see attached

 

Thanks

Re: Problem getting item value from treeview

Ok I got it, i know what was my mistake and it's working now.

 

function Test1()
{
 
 PatternsNumber = Aliases.CCM.BreadScrumbTree.AutomationPatternsControl.Tree.FindAll("ClrClassName", "TreeViewItem", 1)
  PatternsNumber = PatternsNumber.toArray()
  PatternsNumber[0].click()
}

 

I have another question, why if i ask him to click item[0] it click the last item in the UI?

 

Thanks

Re: Problem getting item value from treeview

If the array items are strings and not objects, then calling .Name off one of them isn't going to work.  You have the "toArray" called, I'd like to see what PatternNumbers looks like AFTER toArray is applied... add toArray() to the end of your FindAll call and see what is returned.
