How to interrogate an application launched in Citrix by an windows application present locally?
Need to interrogate application which is launched in Citrix server directly from an windows application installed locally. I am not clear how to use Citrix context to work with this. As per my understanding we need instance of the application which is present in Citrix to be present in same server where studio is present. But as per my process the application can only be accessed through an another application which is present locally. It is not possible for me to get the instance of the application locally. Also it is not possible to install the runtime instance in Citrix environment as Citrix is accessed only through the windows application present locally.
You might be able to get some limited functionality by using the OCR methods. Those still require you to interrogate the outer windows form, so you might have problems getting that for a Citrix application (you may have to use MonitorAll looking for Wfica32.exe to interrogate the window).
I do not believe that you have a way to do this with the product as/is. I would suggest that you work with your EL/PL to get this added as a feature request as there may be some way to do it. If you can determine a way to launch the Citrix application outside of this other application, then you should be able to get the Citrix Context to work with it.
