Upgrading problems with # instead of @id=

Post by Aracknid » Thu Jul 31, 2014 9:46 pm

We upgraded from 4.0.6 to 5.1.1 .

In many places in our code, we are having issues finding objects when we use "#" instead of "@id=" in the RxPath. It doesn't always happen. I'm not sure yet of the specific reason or case when it happens. But by changing to use "@id=" we are able to get past this problem. This happens with any browser we tried with (IE, FF, CH).

We can even go into Spy and type the RxPath with # and it will not find it, and then change it to @id= and it will find it.

I have 2 snapshots to send you if you want them. The first is with # and not finding the item, and the second is with @id= and it does find it. Let me know who to send them to.

Hi Aracknid,

May I ask you to send the Snapshots to [email protected] ?
This will allow us to analyze the issue in more detail.

Thank you in advance.
