I have been tasked with automating a clients existing app ("C_app" for the sake of clarity).
C_app consists of many child forms to accept data input (first name, last name and so on).
I have automated the opening of the C_app, Passed values for the logon, clicked the "Next" button, added waits as needed, used SendKeys.Send("%(o)").. SendKeys.Send("%(N)") and so on to get me to the data entry form in C_app.
I can loop through all the keys in the parent form and through each child form so I know I have a handle on the C_app.
PROBLEM: How do I isolate the data entry form to send value of the first name ("John") to the First_Name text box on the the data entry form?
The Logon child form was easy b/c the child form name was "logon". I can see the text of the data entry child ("Enter user info") but not its name.
thanks in advance
What I have tried:
Looped through all child forms and parent form attempting to get handle on data entry form
