White and IronRuby

Sep 21, 2009 at 6:18 PM


  I'm trying to use white from Ruby using IronRuby.  Has anyone managed to do this before?

  I've managed to get some things to work but I cannot use the menu_item_by() method in MenuBar. 

  If anyone has an example of using this method from Ruby, I'd love to see it :)

Why are trying to use it from IronRuby??   I've been thinking about creating a scripting language that allows others to write UI automation scripts.  I don't want them to have to learn c# and use the full blown visual studio.  I don't know anything about ruby.   Would IronRuby be a good way to do this?

Hi Jon,

  My main reason for using Ruby is to be able to unify all technologies the technologies which we test under Ruby.  It's rather difficult to have test engineers ping pong between different technologies.  It also helps get non-technical people involved in automation.

  I'm giving a talk at this year's Google Test Automation Conference and will mention this approach.  Watch out for it on youtube ;-)
