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

Hi Robert,

Thank you for the fast response.

Firstly,
MarconiMenuItem is a subclass of JMenuItem
and
MarconiMenu is a subclass of JMenu

So they are definitely instances of JMenu and JMenuItem.

I tried your suggestion of an SUT script:
i.e.
from javax.swing import JMenu
comp = rc.getComponent("Menu.NRQCircuit.PopupMenu.Circuit.Service",0)
if not comp == None:
    if isinstance(comp, JMenu):
        print comp.getText(), comp.isEnabled()

And it confirms that the menu item for the 'Service' submenu is in fact enabled despite the
item visibly being greyed out.  So not the fault of QF-Test after all.

My apologies for taking up your time.  I should have tried the SUT script idea to start with.
I'd simply assumed that because the submenu item is greyed out its JMenu component would
be in the disabled state!

Its been suggested to me that this behaviour is something to do with the fact that
the two items under the submenu are themselves disabled (greyed out).  This results
in this situation where the 'Service' submenu is greyed out but not in the disabled state.

i.e.
<submenu: 'Service'> - greyed out, but not disabled JMenu.
       <item in submenu: 'Set In Service'> - greyed out and disabled JMenuItem.
       <item in submenu: 'Set Out of Service'>  - greyed out and disabled JMenuItem.

Thank you for your kind help
Regards
Adrian

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
