Ranorex (4.1.3) is not identifying old repository item

Post by phani.2905 » Tue Jan 21, 2014 8:05 am

Hi Markus/BernhardS,

Recently i had upgraded from 4.1.2. to 4.1.3,
I have a situation where my old recorded repository object is not getting identified. Also what i observed is, my old item had a different name and in new version SPY is showing a different name. Now i am forced to change my old repository item with new one. Why does this happen.

Should i follow the same approach and change all the other unidentified objects. This is becoming burden for me. :(
Also i am attaching a snapshot for reference. Please let me know at the earliest.


Thanks,
A.R. Phanindranath.

Hi,

May I ask you to send me the following files?
The old repository and the new one (including the item which changed) and two Ranorex snapshot files of the specific element. One create with Ranorex 4.1.2 and one create with 4.1.3.
These files will help me in analyzing the issue.

You can post the files here, or you can also send the file to [email protected].

Thanks,
Markus

Hi Markus,

Unfortunately I am not able to take a snapshot of Old repository item. The hierarchy is stopping at SPAN itself. But for the new one i had successfully taken snapshot and attaching it here..


If you need more information let me know. I will mail to this address "[email protected]."

Thanks,
Phani

Hi,

What I can see from the screenshots of the two repositories, the ImgTag was in both cases identified via the unique id #'profileimg', so you shouldn't have any troubles in identifying the ImgTag with Ranorex 4.1.3.
It should work with the same RxPath.

By the way, why did it stop at SPAN itself?
Could you send the two repositories to [email protected] for further analysis?

Thanks,
Markus

That's why i am also feeling strange. Same unique id is used for both, but not identifying in new version and forcing my script to fail.

Anyways i will send both repository files to above mentioned address.
