Trying to select Menu item - not working on vista correctly

Post by Chrispy » Wed Apr 02, 2008 2:08 pm


All I'm trying to do is to select a menu item in calc. Nothing really fancy but on vista it's not working as expected. I cannot get my head around this one and used various methods without success.

I can confirm that the following code works on 2003 Server and XP SP2.

Code: Select all

 // Make sure calculator is set to Standard
            Menu menu = new Menu(form);

            Console.WriteLine("Selecting the Standard view from Menu");
            //Method 1            
            menu.SelectItemText("View", "Standard");
            //Method 2
            menu.SelectPosition(2, 1);
What could I be doing wrong? nothing i hope!

I'm currently not able to reproduce your problem in my vista environment.

Could you please check your Vista task bar settings? The check box "Show window previews (thumbnails)" must be unchecked.
