WEIRD issue

Post by Nono » Tue Nov 29, 2016 5:08 pm

Hi guys,
So the weirdest thing...this button (see snapshot attached),that looks like a button and behaves like a button, causes my test to fail every single time due to this weird error:

"Item 'Ranorex8_0Repository.Observer80.AddBannerButton' is no Button.
The element does not support the required capability 'button'. "

I've never seen it before. Do you know what do?

Try changing the XPath from a /button to a /buttontag type. I don't know if that will help in this case, but sometimes it does. Also, you might check the repo element's properties (F4) and make sure that the element's type is set to buttontag.

This has been an issue for a while with buttontag elements. Ranorex is supposed to see buttontag and button elements as essentially the same, but there are instances where you have to specifically declare as a buttontag. Again, I don't know if that is the case here, but it is worth a try.

I've changed it to buttontag as you said and it totally worked!!!!!! Thank you so much :)

Like I said, sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't...
