Re: [QF-Test] Check the state of the checkbox of a tree node

Hi Joaquin,

if you record a node image check, the check will always be relative to
the node, not to the tree. The target for the check has to be a tree
node like


If you make the index /a/b/c variable, you can apply it to any node.
The check region can be cropped to cover the checkbox only as the
position of the checkbox relative to the node is unlikely to change.

At script level, to get the node of a Swing JTree, you need the

# Again, you need the item syntax for your specific node
tree, row = rc.getComponent("tree@/a/b/c")
# now row is the row index of the target node, convert that to path
path = tree.getPathForNode(row)
node = path.getLastPathComponent()

Now node is the model object represented by the tree node. It is a
custom part of your application. You have to ask development about how
to get the checked state, or you can experiment, e.g.

print dir(node)

will print all attributes and methods of the object.

Best regards,

It is not easy to define the "check region inside image" because we don’t know how much expanded the tree is in a certain moment.
