Why does my Pick() method fail when testing against a SWT 3.4 MenuItem?

Why does my Pick() method fail when testing against a SWT 3.4 MenuItem?

In some circumstances, using the Pick() method to choose cascade MenuItems when testing SWT applications can fail.

SWT/RCP menues behave differently compared to other controls in this technology. This is a known issue.

Below are 2 workarounds that can deal with this problem:-

1. You can script single menu actions.

For example the below action:-

[ ] JavaEclipsePlatform.xWindow.OpenPerspective.Other.Pick()

can be scripted using single menu actions like below:-

[ ] JavaEclipsePlatform.xWindow.Pick()
[ ] JavaEclipsePlatform.xWindow.OpenPerspective.Pick()
[ ] JavaEclipsePlatform.xWindow.OpenPerspective.Other.Pick()


2. Alternatively you can set the following Open Agent option in your script -

[ ] Agent.SetOption(OPT_REPLAY_MODE, 1)
