Exception on Request Tooltip, while debugging

Post by vshulman » Thu Nov 12, 2009 11:59 pm

Ranorex v.

While stepping through some code, I hovered the mouse over a variable and got the exception (see the bottom of this message).

I hover over any other variable in this function and get the expected result, which is the type and value of the variable. However, every time I "Continue" after the exception and try to hover over that one variable, I get the exception back again.

Here is the code:
IList<ListItem> selections = selector.FindDescendants<ListItem>();
The variable selections gives the grief. When I hover over "Count" in selections.Count, I get the right result; the code works fine, too.

selector is a Ranorex.Combobox.

Probably the only other thing I can tell you is that I am tracing a function in a dll linked by reference (built in a separate solution). Both the main solution and the referenced dll have been rebuilt with v.2.2. I cannot tell whether this problem existed in v.2.1.

Ranorex Studio Version :
.NET Version : 2.0.50727.3603
