Hello John,

Thank you for your application.
I started the application and compared the Path from RanoreXSpy with the path in your application.

For example:
RanorexSpy:
/form[@controlname='TelerikWhetstone']/container[@controlname='radDock1']//table[@accessiblename~'^Telerik\.WinControls\.UI\.Ra']/row[@accessiblename~'^Row\ 6\ Column\ Tag\ Value\ \ D']/cell[6]

Your application:
/form[@controlname='TelerikWhetstone']/element[@controlname='radDock1']//table[@accessiblename~'^Telerik\.WinControls\.UI\.Ra']/row[@accessiblename~'^Row\ 6\ Column\ Text\ Value\ I']/cell[6]

I have also seen that the timeout is not long enough.
Independend which value is set for the timeout in the dialog the message box "Control was not found" appears after 2 seconds.
Please make sure that the path is correct and that the timeout is not too short.
I changed the path and increased the timeout in your the code and your application could also find the element.

Regards,
Bernhard

Hi,

I had a similar problem on my windows 7 64 bit sytem, too. I found out that the 32bit Spy and Ranorex Studio didn't find a control but the 64bit Spy does. I checked the "Target CPU" settings of all project files and I found out that the "Target CPU" in one of the two project files of the solution was set to "32-bit Intel-compatible processor" and in the other one to "Any processor". So therefore I switched all "Target CPU" settings to "Any processor" and re-build the solution. After that it works with Ranorex Studio, too.

Maybe I could help you.

Andreas

This defect is still present still in 5.0.3. Will this issue be resolved at some point?

I will create a small applet that demonstrates this issue and post it.

Hi John,

It would be great when you could post or send us a sample which illustrates your issue!
In my point of view this is no Ranorex defect it is more a configuration issue but let us wait for the sample then I will be able to analyze this issue in more detail.

Thanks,
Markus
