How to get names of dropdown items from a TdxBarDropDownListBox object?
I am trying to get list item names and click on a specific item from a drop down list. But there is no way to find the names of the list items. The list parent object can be mapped but it has only one property related to the list items which is 'Count'. This shows the number of list items. The parent object also doesn't have any Child items. Can anyone please help me with getting this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
List items in a list box are not seperate items that are mapped. They are in some property within the control itself. Look to see if there is a wItemCount or wItem property. Look, also, for perhaps something like "Items"

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.

You have search for any property inside the Obj Spy for the names.
Generally I use to get the name under Items .. Names or Display or Text
This listbox doesn't have names, display, text, wItemCount or wItem property. It has only 'Items' property but the value of that is only '(Object)'. There is no way to get the names. Is there any way to get the names from it?
1. Have you tried entering that Items Object and see any property in it?
2. What is happening if you are trying to do record script for the same dropdown?
1. I tried getting the properties of the 'Items' object and it returns some properties like 'CommaText', 'DelimitedText' which shows a string of the list items separated by comma. There is another property 'Count' which shows the number of list items. But is there any way to click on a specific item? I can only check if an item is in the list, but cant click it.
2. For record script, it just clicks on a specific coordinate like this-
Try adding TdxBarDropDownListBox class in the text recognization and see whether Microsoft lib helps you to get the text object.
If the above way dint help try adding the same class in MSAA list as well.
Thanks anupamchampati for the suggestion. Adding the classname under Text recognization worked successfully in this case as testcomplete doesn't have support for this type of control.
