DefaultSearchTimeout

Post by sdaly » Tue May 18, 2010 8:57 am

Hi

I have set adapter.DefaultSearchTimeout = 10000 in the main class.

I am then searching for the following which is a search result after a search button is clicked. The result is returned within 2 seconds, however I get a Ranorex.ElementNotFoundException: No element found for path error, unless I put a delay in such as delay.seconds(4)

Dim selector As Ranorex.ATag = host.Local.FindSingle("/dom[@caption='Central Vision']/frameset/frameset/frame[@id='main']/frameset/frame[@name='search_display']/body/div[@id='pat_details_layer']/table/tbody/tr/td/table/tbody/tr/td[@innertext='" & surname & "']/../../../../../td[@innertext='" & forename & "']/../td/table/tbody/tr/td/a[@innertext='" & chi & "']")

selector.Click

Am I using the defaultSearchTimeout in the wrong way? Preferable I wouold like to remove all delays so the tests can run most efficiently...

Thanks
Scott

Ahhh, just read a thread which tells me the findSingle method does not use the timeout by default! I've now passed the timeout in and it works without the delays!

This now works!

Dim selector As Ranorex.ATag = host.Local.FindSingle("/dom[@caption='Central Vision']/frameset/frameset/frame[@id='main']/frameset/frame[@name='search_display']/body/div[@id='pat_details_layer']/table/tbody/tr/td/table/tbody/tr/td[@innertext='" & surname & "']/../../../../../td[@innertext='" & forename & "']/../td/table/tbody/tr/td/a[@innertext='" & chi & "']", Adapter.DefaultSearchTimeout)
selector.Click
