Accessing dropdowns within Powerbuilder DataWindow control.
The control is identified as DropDown or ComboBox,and has only one child ListItem. I donot see a SelectedItem value nor am able to get a list of all the child ListItems. Is there a solution for this?
I have attached a screenshot of the Object browser window to show what I mean.
Thanks in advance.
Maybe enabling the Tools | Options | Engines | General | Show hidden members option will help you find the target methods/properties to iterate through child items.
Is there anybody who is testing PowerBuilder apps? Have you faced a similar task? Feel free to share your solution with us.
Hi, I'm having exact same problem with Desktop based powerBuilder application
I dont have any clickitem or settext function exposed to edit value for comboboxes or dropdowns within datawindow.
Anybody has any solutions?
Very old thread....
I recommend that you create your own topic here and describe what you want to implement and what issues do you face. We will do our best to help you!

I was able to handle ALL dropdowns and ComboBoxes through custom algorithm developed by using
Text Recognition + Pixel Mapping + Dropdown/ComboBoxes behavior adaptation.
It was a good 200+ lines of algorithm but ultimately i was able to succesfully automate PB 12.5+ applications with TestComplete. The only problem i faced was occasional non-detection of changes inside pbdw Dynamic data windows by TestComplete causing crashes at Testing Application end.
