If object exist execute, if not continue

Hello! I am probably overthinking it but I am sure this has worked before so it confuses me now.

 

I am trying to execute a keyword test IF the object exist. If it does not exist it should continue with the else. Is this the wrong way to use it?

  • Hmm strange, I had a broken If Object before aswell, I replaced it with a new one that does exactly the same and it worked, You could try this maybe.

    Otherwise someone else might have a fix or Smart-bear support can help.

      Yep re-creating the if object seemed to solved it somehow. Strange how that occures, thank you!

    Might be worth raising a ticket for this, as you don't want to be re-creating the steps if you have hundreds to update. It could be a genuine bug.

    Does it not work now? What does the log say?

     

    To me it looks like this should work, maybe the object exists but is not visible?

      I know right but it gives no error message that is understandable. (image)

       

      The error occures at the first if object.

    Use the Object Spy tool, verify the Exists property of Aliases.ComTestRibbonMenu.HwndS...

     

    What is it showing?
