Not able to click on ComboBox while automating a window based legacy application

Post by rpremani » Sun Oct 14, 2018 9:24 pm

I am automating a window based legacy application and I got stuck at a point wherein I am not able to click on a combobox as the spy is not capturing it properly
I found out a work around where I am clicking on it using mouse relative but that is not a good practice to proceed further because whenever the resolution gets changed, it will fail at that step
Please help me to locate that element and perform click on it

Please let me know if any further information is required

Hi,

I'm afraid, there is not enough info about the problematic element, to provide a reasonable answer.
Could you please post a Ranorex snapshot of the problematic element (or its parent element)?
Have you tried GDI capture list (raw texts)?
What kind of GUI technology are we talking about (MFC, Delphi, etc...)?

  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration
