searchtimeout ... possible reasons?

Post by JayDee » Tue Jan 11, 2011 10:23 am

Good Morning :) ,

we have just a single control imbedded in a pool of controls and ranorex needs a lot of time to reach this single control also if there is not a hugh difference to the neighboor-controls. Measured time is about 7 seconds if we handle other controls in the same area (like the same NotebookPage) before reaching the problemcontrol. 26 seconds if we start with this control.

I can provide you our RxPath for the control, tracked with RanorexSpy but what are possible reasons for our scenario and what could we do to make it faster?

<![CDATA[/form[@title~'^Kunde']/container/container/container[@caption='' and @controltypename='SplitterPanel' and @instance='0']/container/container[@controlname='contentPanel']/container/container[@controlname='KontoNB']/*/container[@caption='' and @controltypename='UltraTabPageControl']/container/container[@controlname='HauptbankverbId']/container[@controlname='Lastschrift']/container[@controlname='LastVerfahren']/combobox[@controlname='LastVerfahren']]]>

As you can see there are not a lot of layers unnamed (marked as a container in general) and it would be kind of tuff to name some more layers...

Thanks for your help! Greetings from Germany, JayDee

Would it be possible to send us a Ranorex Snapshot of your entire application? Even better would be an example application where we can reproduce the time issue.

Could it be possible that your specific controls blocks for a while and therefore Ranorex is slower. Because you said it is only with this control.

Thanks in advance.
