Mouse action performed.....warning message

Post by BeardMJ » Mon Sep 18, 2017 11:11 am

Hi Everyone

I upgraded Ranorex to 7.1 and some of my scripts are now giving warning errors I've never seen. The error I'm seeing is:

"The mouse action was performed outside the boundaries of the assigned UI element"

It's simple click actions.

If you need me to upload anything please specify.

Hello BeardMJ,

Basically, this warning message means that the coordinates specified in the Action Spot field are outside of the corresponding UI element. In this case, the mouse click is performed outside of the UI element (relative to the element).

I'm not sure if there was a specific reason to specify coordinates outside of the UI element, but this issue can be resolved by changing the Action Spot to Center.

As a consequence, the mouse click will be performed in the center of the assigned UI element. I hope this information will help you.
