Object cannot be found

Post by ranisti » Mon Sep 24, 2012 6:01 pm


I have made a short test which has worked.

After some minutes the same test has not worked:

"No element found for path 'element' within 30s.
The folder 'MesapExplorerRepository.M4Explorer.Element4823442161' was not found.
Failed to find item 'MesapExplorerRepository.M4Explorer.Element4823442161.Element01'.
Show/Hide Stacktrace"

I have jumped to the object and I have tried to track it once again... I have however received an error.

My questions:

- what is the reason that a test runs successfully but after 5 Min. it crashes?
- if one object is not found how can RX identify it?

Can I attach it again to repository?

Thank you for your help.

Kind regards

In your second screenshot Ranorex finds two elements with the index 2, so Ranorex cannot decide which element you want to find.
Which version of Ranorex do you use?
Which technology is used in your application (e.g. WinForms, WPF, etc.)?
Can you please explain a little bit more detailed what you are doing to get the error?

It can be a problem with an earlier Ranorex version. Try it out with the latest version.
Try to find the element with other detail, not with the Index number, with that RX can decide which element You want to found.
