Issues Validating Images Behind Progress Dialog

Post by costamesakid » Wed Dec 19, 2012 11:41 pm

As seen in the screen shot below I am trying to validate an image which resides behind the Ranorex Progress Dialog. In such an instance the object will take up all of its timeout period, Ranorex will hang for 2-3 minutes, and eventually the image validation will pass. When trying to validate numerous issues on the lower-right corner of the screen the time needed for validation to complete becomes very inconvenient.

Is there currently a way to alleviate this issue? Thanks

In general, image validation should work with elements behind the progress bar within milliseconds.
Are you facing this issue if you validate an image in the lower-right corner only?
Is it possible to track the correct element in Spy?
Which Ranorex version are you using?

Could you please post a Snapshot of your application in order to analyze this issue?
Please take a look at section 'Creating Ranorex Snapshot Files' from our User Guide.

Just an idea, did you try to "hide" the progress bar dialog? You can disable it in Test Suite properties. Simply set Show Progress Dialog to False.
