Clicking a wpflist item

Hi Guys,

I'm currently trying to create some automated tests using QTP and the application has an object which is being recognised as a wpflist object. The code below will select an item in the list however I'm trying to simulate a right click mouse action on an item which will bring up another menu or even a left mouse click so I can position the mouse on the correct item. The automation tool QTP uses VBScript as its language however I can create an instance of a .Net object using the DotNetFactory object and access its methods and properties. Any ideas?

FindActiveEvent "E13051010008"

Function FindActiveEvent(eventNo)
 
   Set wActiveEvents = WpfWindow("Active Events").WpfList("eventList")

   For i = 0 to wActiveEvents.Object.Items.Count - 1

            lineEventNo = wActiveEvents.Object.Items.Item(i).AgencyEventId
            If strComp(trim(lineEventNo),trim(eventNo)) = 0 Then
                   wActiveEvents.Object.Items.Item(i).Selected = True
                  Exit Function
            End If      

      Next

   
End Function

Hi,


If you are using wpf then I'm afraid it's not going to work so easy because the vbscript uses COM Handles to access the COM controls or .Net winforms controls. But the WPF controls do not derive from standard windows COM controls, they are rendered through directx engine and thus they have no handle pointer only the window class has and can be accessed through WindowInteropHelper.

Apparently QTP version 11 supports WPF, more info here.

Mishu
