Element of type "button" cannot be clicked

Post by mikgra » Wed Jul 29, 2015 2:00 pm

I´m trying to click on an add button over IE.
The issue is, that the element can be scanned and i´m also able to check the element if i
click on "Highlight". But while executing the test i get following error:

(please note, that I delete some sensitive data of the error message and the code)

Item 'TestcasesRepository.Online.N2__Aussendung_erfassen.Videoverbreitung.VideoHinzufuegen' is no Button.
The element does not support the required capability 'button'.

Here the Code:

Report.Log(ReportLevel.Info, "Mouse", "Mouse Left Click item 'Online.N2__Aussendung_erfassen.Videoverbreitung.VideoHinzufuegen' at Center.", repo.Online.N2__Aussendung_erfassen.Videoverbreitung.VideoHinzufuegenInfo, new RecordItemIndex(2));
repo.OTSOnline.N2__Aussendung_erfassen.OTS_Videoverbreitung.VideoHinzufuegen.Click();
Delay.Milliseconds(200);


I also tried to change the ClickFunktion instead of a "Left" to "Down" and "Up".

Operating System: Windows 7
Ranorex Version: 5.3.3.24484

Thank you in advance.

Thanks a bunch. It works great know.

So for all of you, who have issues with buttons, try to change in the propertys of
the repository item which fails and change the "Adapter Type" to "buttontag".

Thanks again. That was a huge help.
