I'm researching ways to do android automation running on the device, without any workstation connection.
My approach is like this, i modified monkey's source, and is able to start 3rd party app (which i don't have the source access), I can send the keystrokes to the app too. But now I'm facing another problem, i need access properties of some ui elements, for e.g. get button's text for verification purpose.
How can i get the system's (or top activity's) hierarchy from my app?
No, there is no way to accomplish this.
