Validation text

Post by armstronghm24 » Mon Feb 12, 2018 5:03 pm

Hi,

I am trying to do a simple validation on text for an element, but the validation is failing unexpectedly. Am I missing something here? I have a screenshot showing that the expected value matches the actual value, but it is still failing.

Hi,

The most common reason of problem like this are non-printable characters in front or behind the validated string. Could you please post a Ranorex snapshot? The solution is to use AttributeRegex validation, instead of AttributeEqual.
