TestExecute failing to click an object because of the Indicator?
Recently we added a couple of new test machines to our CI builds. While getting the new test machines set up, we noticed that one test machine seemed to be failing often when attempting to click a specific button during a specific test step.
We pulled the machine from the rotation and started experimenting with it. After a bit, we found out that if we turned off the TestComplete Indicator (which was located on top of the button that was failing), the test passed.
Some weird things with what is going on:
- That failing test isn't the only time that button is being clicked, and it's not the only time that we're interacting with something underneath the Indicator.
- This doesn't happen on the other machines.
My understanding is that the indicator shouldn't interfere with test execution. Is that the case? And has anyone else ever had this sort of problem?
Our workaround at the moment is just turning the indicator off for that test, but it feels not great as a solution.
