Hi,

SetAttributeValue works fine for me and I'm sure it worked in 5.4.6 too. Could you please specify what exactly is your problem or what exactly do you want to achieve?

SetAttributeValue does indeed work correctly in 5.4.6.


However, 5.4.6 is no longer supported. Therefore, you should upgrade to a supported version (currently 6.0.2 or 6.1.1).

Hi

I work with firefox 37.7.1 and this version does not support ranorex 6.x.x :(
I have 1 application multi-language and the tabes in firefox are not identified by id, they have an accessible name which changes with each language.

PS: I can not make an update firefox :( because our application is developed on this version.

Thanks :)

Hi,

I still don't understand what's your problem with SetAttributeValue? And what makes you think that FF 37.x is not supported in Ranorex 6.x? Support for FF 37 has been added in Ranorex 5.3.1 and it should work up to the most recent version of Ranorex. Just make sure there is installed and enabled Ranorex plugin in your instance of FF. Additionally, please upload a Ranorex snapshot (not screenshot) of the problematic element(s) with clear description what you want to achieve and what fails in case of SetAttributeValue. Thanks.
