Non-dynamic objcet keeps changing

Post by Nono » Sun Jun 26, 2016 4:25 pm

Hi,

I have a bit of a weird issue. There's an object I try to detect and use in my tests. It's an web element (a button).Every time I try to run my test I need to update its action spot as it keeps changing! every single time. The object itself remains the same, it only looks like its coordinates are dynamic for some reason....

Please assist :(

Hi,

Have you tried to change the pixel-based coordinates to "center"? Additionally, I would suggest to change "Coordinate recording mode" (recorder default settings) from 'pixel' to 'none', which will record all future clicks at element center.

Thanks so much! It worked great after changing the default recording settings.
