AUT discards inputs

Post by stefan.hartisch » Tue Mar 30, 2021 2:41 pm

Hey together,

I'm testing with an older c# application and in one component in a dialog located in a deeply nested container my AUT discards the inputs when trying to save as if they never existed.
I have already filled the fields in the dialog with different methods and made the keyboard shortcut for saving with focus on different controls. I have also played with the timing. Everything does not help.
This problem can never be reproduced manually.
I know that this is not a Ranorex but a test automation problem, but maybe there are some tips what to try.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Stefan,
Your problem is a bit vague.
Is your automated run log always running faulty? or is sometimes ok/sometimes wrong ?
In case of the last you might have a timing issues: make sure to wait for all elements to existing, be visible and enabled.
If always wrong : make sure you that you trigger events of the SUT ( example: use key sequence {tab} to leave input fields )
Try runnning your SUT with a compability mode this might help also.
