Re: [QF-Test] 'Check enabled state' node not working correctly with submenus.

Hello Adrian,

thank you for providing your run-logs.

I can confirm that the 'Check enabled node' does work for submenus when
using the genuine Swing components javax.swing.JMenu and
javax.swing.JMenuItem. I tested this with the following code:

   JMenuBar menuBar = new JMenuBar();

   JMenu menu = new JMenu("A Menu");
   menuBar.add(menu);
   menu.add(new JMenuItem("MenuItem1"));
   menu.add(new JMenuItem("MenuItem2"));
   menu.getItem(1).setEnabled(false);

   JMenu subMenu = new JMenu("A Submenu");
   subMenu.add(new JMenuItem("SubmenuItem1"));
   subMenu.add(new JMenuItem("SubmenuItem2"));
   menu.add(subMenu);
   subMenu.setEnabled(false);

   frame.setJMenuBar(menuBar);

From your run-logs I can see that your are using other components. Are they
derived from JMenuItem? Anyway, could you please check the state of your
'Service' submenu by means of a Jython SUT script, inserted before your
check node:

# change compID accordingly
compID = "<ID-of-Submenu>"
c = rc.getComponent(compID)
print c.getText(), c.isEnabled()

When running the script, you should see its output in the QF-Test Terminal
window.

Best regards,
   Robert

Hi Robert,
Thanks for the feedback.

I can confirm that the check node was set to throw an exception on error
(i.e. check failed).
For the menu items which are objects of class JMenuItem an exception is
thrown if the meuu item is disabled (greyed out).

But in the case of a menu item which is a submenu (i.e. JMenu), no
exception is thrown and there is no indication in the run log of any
errors.

I've attached two run logs.
1. JMenuItem.qrz
2. JMenu.qrz

The popup menu is called 'Circuit' and has various menu items including
'Secure' and 'Service'.

Menu 'Circuit'
-------------------
menu item 'Secure' - JMenuItem
....
....
menu item 'Service' - JMenu (i.e. submenu)
....
....

* Both these menu items are greyed out (disabled).

As the first run log shows, the 'check enabled state' node resulted
in an exception being thrown (i..e 'Secure' item is disabled).

But the 'check enabled state' for the menu item 'Service'
(which is a submenu) results in no errors and hence no exception.

Kind Regards
Adrian

Hello Adrian,

you are right, a submenu is also a JMenuItem and hence you can use the
'Check enabled state' node for it. The problem might be that you expect an
exception to be thrown, in case the JMenuItem is not enabled - but it's
just an error! You should set the option 'Throw exception on failure' in
the check node, if you want to abort the test execution.

Best regards,
    Robert

'Check enabled state' node not working correctly with menu items which
are submenus.  A submenu is of course a menu item (i.e. JMenu is
a subclass of JMenuItem).

If the 'Check enabled state' node is used to determine if a submenu is
enabled the check node never fails, even when the submenu is
disabled (greyed out).

For example:

MENU
---------
item 1
item 2
item 3
submenu 1
item 4
item 5

Using the 'check enabled state' node to determine if menu item 'submenu
1' is disabled  never fails (i.e. no CheckFailed exception is thrown).

Given that 'submenu 1' will be a JMenu and given that JMenu is a subclass
of JMenuItem, why does the 'check enabled state' node not work correctly
in this case ?
Any help appreciated.

Regards
Adrian
