QA Wizard Pro Cannot Locate a Repository Item
A script fails during playback and an error similar to the following is returned:
'Cannot locate the local:WysiCorp Login/1.0/Wysicorp - Feedback Acknowledgement/editbox8 repository item in the running application. Searched for 30 seconds.'
QA Wizard Pro performs dynamic searches to locate controls in the tested application. During recording, QA Wizard Pro records several properties of each control and creates an entry for each control in the application repository. Each control in the repository has a default set of search criteria, which varies based on the control type. The default search criteria can be used during playback to successfully locate controls most of the time. However, there are instances when the default search criteria is not the best way to locate a control.
For example, the default search criteria for text input boxes in HTML includes the following: Tag ID (corresponds to the HTML ID value), Name, and Vertical Repeat Index (only if there is more than one text input box on the page). In web applications with dynamically-generated content, sometimes one or more of these default criteria change every time the page loads. For example, the Name or Tag ID might be dynamically generated, or a portion of it may be dynamic such as 'ItemQuant_12345', where 12345 is a dynamic number.
Evaluate the window/control properties and select different search criteria.
