Could not validate that Value_Edit has the expected value of '-90

Post by sepr8084 » Mon Mar 11, 2019 3:44 pm

I am struck with a error: '' Could not validate that Value_Edit has the expected value of '-90'. '' Is this error due to the WinForms Waring Message as mentioned below ?

--> I tried debugging, But could not find root cause. One test case works fine and another not. But both are of same functionality with different GUI controls.

Re: Could not validate that Value_Edit has the expected value of '-90

Hi,

At first, could you please post a Ranorex snapshot (NOT screenshot), both from working and non-working GUI?
At next, which Ranorex version do you use (most recent and supported versions are 8.3.3 and 9.0)?

The winform error, you are getting, could definitely have something to do with your problem. Unfortunately, it's impossible to tell anything definitive, without seeing your app under test or, at very least, Ranorex snapshot of the problematic UI control (which may not be enough for such kind of issue). BTW, do you run Ranorex Studio/your test in administration mode? Runing test in administration mode, often fixes similar winform identification errors.

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 added an automation Id in EditSpy for Value and ran the Ranorex in Administrator mode and it worked.

thank you.
