Delay in Identifying object(element)

Post by joyarjit » Tue Oct 24, 2017 12:40 pm

Hi All,

I have an object(element, which is a windows button). This object takes almost 40-50 secs to get identified and get clicked.

All other objects does not take such time and gets identified almost instantly. Has anyone else faced the same problem and got it rectified? Please guide me on this.

Without seeing the app in question or at very least the Ranorex snapshot(NOT screenshot) of the problematic button and the xpath store in repository, there is almost nothing anyone here can do or suggest.

Typically, problem like this is caused by an inadequate or too generic xpath. So please post the snapshot and xpath and we may try to suggest a better xpath.
