control identified by spy, not identified while running test

Post by murthyksvr » Thu Jul 21, 2016 2:07 pm

our application has a control which is identified using ranorex spy. But the control is not found while running the test. I have changed to any processor/any CPU in project properties. But still the control is not getting identified while running test. Please suggest me how to fix this issue?

Hi,

I'm afraid, there is not enough details in your post to provide a reasonable answer.

Please post a Ranorex snapshot (NOT screenshot!) of the problematic element.
Please post the xpath of given element (the one you have stored in repository).
Please post the "EXACT" error message you are getting (ideally entire report).

Additionally, once the test fails, re-examine the problematic element with spy and make sure the xpath returned by spy MATCH the one stored in repository! The most common reason causing problems like this are dynamic IDs, eventually, element indexes. Element indexes should be used only as a last resort and only if there is really no other way to identify an element with another attribute/relationship operators.

Please add these details to your questions:
  • Ranorex Snapshot. Learn how to create one >here<
  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration

I have matched renorexpath both in run time as well as in repository. during run time, parent element is not getting identified. it is showing repository tree from next element onwards.. I cant share snapshot due to compliance. But i can share you the stacktrace.

Hi murthyksvr,

Without having more detailed information it will be difficult to figure out the cause of the issue.

Would it be possible to send the Ranorex Snapshot and the compressed Ranorex Report of the failed test execution to [email protected]? We could also sign an NDA (Non-disclosure agreement) if it will be required from your side.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
Johannes
