Hmmmmm.... ding! Found it! I tried finding this menu myself and here is
what I get: it finds the wrong "Project" menu item. It finds the one
that is located in Search -> Text . Clearly not the behavior I would
expect: it does a recursive search using a depth-first approach. I would
of done this without recursion, or if recursion is absolutely necessary
I would prefer a breadth-first approach... To get the one you're
after, do this instead:
bot.menu("Project", 1); // Get the second Project menu item...
On a side-note, you could also do bot.menu("Properties", 1) instead of
the chaining. Note that again I had to specify index 1, because the
first "Properties" MenuItem is located under the File menu.
I'm going to open a bug on this issue, probably to add a new API to
specify if the search should be recursive or not:
bot.menu("Text", index, recursive);
I would like it to not be recursive by default, but that would probably
break a lot of people's test since they may rely on this behavior...
We could also discuss to fact to use depth-first vs breadth-first.
Hope this helps.
