how do i check the app is in foreground or background ? is there any python appium API for this ?
@Laxmi_Rukka when you app in foreground you can see some element specific to your app. if you can not see them => your app is in background OR crashed OR closed OR …
@Aleksei, but i would like to know from the API level, or do you know any API which will make the foreground always ?
@Laxmi_Rukka with Android you can check
and see if it yours
@Aleksei you means that will foreground the app ?
@Laxmi_Rukka yes. this should return current activity in foreground. for iOS only left check screen for elements of your app.
sorry to ask tomany Q, what happens if i call this method on the activity which is already active?
i mean in the device the activity is in the foreground and i assumed and tried to launch the activity. will it would be ignored that the activity is already opened ?
@Laxmi_Rukka i do not understand - why you can not test yourself?
i tested with mine app:
System.out.println(((AndroidDriver)driver).currentActivity()); ((AndroidDriver)driver).pressKeyCode(AndroidKeyCode.HOME); sleep(3); System.out.println(((AndroidDriver)driver).currentActivity()); sleep(100);
my_package_name.activity.SplashScreenActivity sleep - 3 .Launcher sleep - 100
“.Launcher” is LG phone launcher activity
@Aleksei do you have python code on this?
anyways i will try similar with python
thanks a lot
