Dynamic Qt element identification - Object identification

Post by kgasimov » Fri Jan 29, 2016 12:06 pm

Hi,
I try to test a GUI application where page has many dynamic UI elements. Because, the InternalId of the created button on the Qt environment is not stable, the element gets every time a different InternalId. So, it is impossible to identify GUI element. I have read following article:

http://www.ranorex.com/blog/automated-t ... ynamic-ids

Because InternalId is unstable, I can not use this solution.
Are there any other best practice to test GUI element where the GUI elements are dynamic?

Thank you for help.
Kamal

Hi Kamal,

Unfortunately, it's pretty hard to suggest a reliable solution without xpath example. Even better, it would be very useful if you could post a Ranorex snapshot (not screenshot) of the element in question. Ranorex snapshot would help us to understand the structure of your AUT and suggest a reliable solution to overcome your problem (if there is any).

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
