MATLAB App Testing - Confirmation dialog boxes

26 views (last 30 days)
How can I handle confirmation dialog boxes when testing an app with gestures?
Ideally, I would like to choose 'OK' or 'Cancel' based on some variables' values.
I know there is not a straight-forward way to do it but is there any option so that they get disabled or something??

but I dont have buttons and the confirmation boxes are not properties of the app. They are created with uiconfirm in a another component's callback function.

Until this functionality is included in the App Testing Framework, if you can adjust the architecture of the source code you can leverage a similar strategy as that outlined here and use a mock for the confirmation dialog.
Does that help you get going?

I would like to ask if it is possible to close manualy these dialog boxes during testing with matlab.uitest.unlock. Where in the source code or the testing code should I add this feature? could you please help?

You can dismiss and alert but not a confirmation dialog yet. Capability for alerts added in 21a.

It sounds like you want to programmatically close a confirmation diaglog box. If so, see this answer.
