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

Post by NuzakFarnas » Tue Nov 26, 2019 7:54 am

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 requiredfedloan irs.gov easybib

Hi,

Could you please post a Ranorex snapshot (NOT screenshot) of the problematic element or its nearest parent, which can be captured?

Also, have you tried GDI Capture approach? This may be your only hope (aside of image-based approach, which I would consider as the very last option).

Please add these details to your questions:
  • Ranorex Snapshot. Learn how to create one >here<
  • Ranorex xPath of problematic element(s)
  • Ranorex version
  • OS version
  • HW configuration
