what’s the method name for it @Palaniyappan ?

Hi Rahul

There aren’t properties for font size and font face that Appium supports, so you can’t get those properties.

Thanks @phaserescu for responding. So, it means we cannot achieve this in mobile automation ?

No, it can’t be achieved. In the context of a web app there is a call to get the computed css but for native apps there isn’t anything that can be used AFAIK.

A workaround might be, only if you can add modifications to the app in test, to use the content-desc property to put some metadata in like font size and font face and retrieve them afterwards.

@phaserescu

we do have for this also:

a strategy checking attributes like android:textSize or boundaries maybe can help for mobile scenario

Thanks @phaserescu @ppr for your responses . I think I got my answer, getting properties like font size and font type of any mobile application UiElement is not achievable . Please comment if I’m wrong.
