Hi,

Please upload a Ranorex snapshot of the problematic cell. Screenshot is unfortunately not useful here. What kind of technology is the tree element (java, wpf, etc...)? Also, what Ranorex version do you use?

Hi,

As I've expected, the tree control in question is a 3rd party control, in this particular case Infragistics UltraTree control. Sadly, because of the implementation of some 3rd party controls (their lack of proper implementation of accessibility), Ranorex cannot identify some elements.

Probably your only hope is something called InvokeRemotely, which could help with setting/getting data to/from .Net controls. Check for example these (old but still relevant) blog posts:
