Unable to Identify DOM on Win8.1 64 bit IE 10

Post by secloreqa » Wed Aug 26, 2015 8:06 am

We have a tool which has IE browser control embedded in MFC.
Now when we are trying to track the webcontrol,Spy is not able to recognize it.Also the visible property of dom 'IE' is false.
Please let us know a workaround for this.

P.S. The state of the <webdocument> is "invalid".
Here is the hierarchy of Path to this element identified by ranorex spy.

/form[@title='MyApplication']/element[@class='Shell Embedding']/?/?/dom[@browsername='IE']

Hello secloreqa ,

It seems like the Web plugin is not working for your embedded browser version. Anyway, you should be able to access the elements via MSAA. Please check whether a MSAA implementation is available for your embedded browser using Microsoft’s Inspect.

If no valid MSAA implementation is available, you could try adding your application to the GDI capturing list.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Robert
