Wpf Button disabled will handled as ENABLED !

Post by woha » Mon Feb 10, 2020 2:51 pm

I am shocked about wrong status recognition in Studio just testing if a WPF Button is DISABLED after fresh opened an empty dialog. The Button gets automatic enabled if an edit field gets filled.
With an iteration of count 4, the second open of the empty dialog lets say ranorex the button is ENABLED, but it is definitely not. In this status i opend the spy and tracked to the button: hey it says it is disabled, as it truely is.
So why i can not get shure simple things work in Ranorex?????
Someone may drop an eye on it please.. thanks.

Ranorex Version 9.2.1

The snapshot you posted definitely shows "enabled=false". So if the report says something else (sadly, the one you posted cannot be open, please post compressed rxzlog instead), I think the problem could be in repo caching? Have you tried to disable folder caching for parent element of the problematic button? In repository, simply set Use Cache property of Form (or container element) to false.
