Bug: Safari Ranorex Plugin 5:Web Controls Invalid

Post by Elizabeth.Mertl » Tue Apr 01, 2014 10:08 am

We installed the latest Update -> Ranorex 5.0.1 and the Web Cross Browser GUI Tests failed for Safari (Windows 7 Desktop. Version Safari: 5.1.7(7534.57.2) ) as well as for Firefox (Windows 7, Desktop, Version 28). The Ranore Spy shows all the controls as 'Invalid' for Safari and some Kendo Controls like for example the icon in Multiselect Box from kendou (path = .//ul[#'UserSelect_taglist']/*/*/i[@class='icon-user']) is not recognied at all.

Our last version was Ranorex 4.05 and there was no problem at all. The only difference was that Firefox was of an older Version: 20.0.1, but the Safari was of the same Version as now.

Please check the attachments, A screenshot of the Webpage and the spy of how the controls are found.

The Safari plugin was installed with the Instrumentation wizard.

We hope Ranorex has any solutions for us, or we may have go back to the older Version

Hello Elizabeth,

Thank you for reporting.
I was able to reproduce the issue with Safari, but Firefox version 28 should work with Ranorex 5.0.1. The problem that all elements are invalid in Safari will be fixed in Ranorex 5.0.2 respectively Ranorex 4.1.6.
Version 5.0.2 of Ranorex will be released soon.
A possible workaround in the meantime would be to instrument Safari with Ranorex 5.0.0 and then install Ranorex 5.0.1.

Kind regards,
Markus (S)
