    Hello everyone!

    I'm having some problems getting the text on a TextBox, it keeps saying it's empty when it's not. Basically, I'm filling in a contact form, saving it and then reopening the contact's details (which opens the same form) and trying to get the text from the TextBox's.

    Since the object is originally is an ITextBox, I tried casting the object to TextBox, FrameworkElement and also not casting it at all and still no good... The "TextContent" property is empty and the "Text" doesn't exist (throws an exception).

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to make the app available to the outside due to company's policy...

    Best regards,

    Hello Ricardo,

    I've had the same issue, but only on some textboxes in grids.
    My sollution was to first click in the textbox (turns out that a border was above the textbox, when i clicked it then my TextBox appeared), then i could read the ITextBox object as text.

    One of my example:

    var myTextBox = rutin.ItemTextbox;

    var myBorderThatIsBlocking = rutin.ItemBorder;


    Assert.AreEqual(inputText, myTextBox.Text);

    This helped me, perhaps it can help you aswell.

    Although that wasn't the solution, thank you very much for your reply Jonas! :)

    The problem was that the "TextBox" was afterall an "ExtendedTextBox", which seems to have different behaviors.
