activating MainWindow without invoking the app

Sep 14, 2010 at 8:06 AM


I wanted to know if i can just activate the main window without invoking the app. For instance, I manually invoke the application and just want to activate the main window. Is there a way to do that, can someone please help. I have tried :

White.Core.UIItems.WindowItems.Window = App.GetMainWindow("MyApp", initializeoption.Nocache) without the below code

OmahaApp = White.Core.

Application .Launch(path);

but i get the visual studio exception. Can someone please help? Thanks in advance.

I want to get the Main window without launching the test app. Can I do that?


I want to launch the test app manually.

I want to start the automation by getting (activating ) the main window.
