Checkpoint field selector selects entire grid rather than a field on a line


I'm starting to build one of my first tests. I'm testing a desktop application Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016.


During recording, I created a checkpoint. I selected the "Drag the target to an object". When I dragged the cursor to a section of the page that shows line details, the entire line details grid object was highlighted with the red line - I could not select a specific field on one of the grid lines. Of course, when I let go of the mouse button, the checkpoint thought I was selecting the entire grid.

Am I missing something? How do I select a field within a grid?
Screenshot showing the highlighting of the grid is attached.




  • Hi all,


    For my particular app (Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016), changing the MSAA options does not work.  However, working with SmartBear Support, I was able to configure UI Automation in much the same way - Identify the object using Object Browser, then including its WndCaption in the list.
