Uploading Files outside of web application

Post by mknoke » Wed Oct 22, 2014 5:00 pm

Part of our application launches a Windows Open Dialog to upload a file. Is there a way to utilize Siesta to test out this functionality as well?

Nope, since Siesta is built with JS there is no solution to this.

We're running into this issue pretty frequently, where we need to access the Windows Open dialog and choose a file.
Any updates to Siesta functionality since the post was first written in 2014?

This is now possible with the native events, which will generate "trusted" system level events. See https://www.bryntum.com/docs/siesta/#!/ ... simulation

There are some limitations for those though.
We offer training in both Ext JS and our products, read more here.
