We develop an app that has menu items (File,Home,Insert,Settings,View,Help) when using the object spy to identify all menu items except from the File one it'll identify them all properly marking the area where the menu item name is but, when trying to do the same with the File menu TestComplete will mark the whole panel in red and not only the area where the text (File) is, that is a problem because if i want to saelect this menu item usinf the Click() method then it'll click somewhere on the panel and not on the text, i tried using coordinates (I don't like it as it's not as reliable) but it failed when running the script on a remote machine. Is there a way to dril down this DevExp control and ask TestComplete to click on the File tab exactly and not using coordinates?
When recording a click on the control that's what Testcomplete generates - Aliases.Editor.Editor_Root_Window.MainWindowRibbonControl.Click(30, 48);
When selecting for example the Insert menu item that what I see in the code - Aliases.Editor.Editor_Root_Window.MainWindowRibbonControl.RibbonMenuControls.RibbonControlInsert.Click(35, 16);

Solved! Go to Solution.
I have attached all ribbon properties and the click methods (to take a screenshot of all methods will take a long time) can you help using this information? or should I copy all methods?
***It is such a shame TC doesn't have an option to copy/export all object properties and fields and methods at once without creating a screenshot scroll down take another screenshot and so on....
Is this an application you could package up and send to me? It might easier to see the inner workins that way.
Can you try running just Aliases.Editor.Editor_Root_Window.MainWindowRibbonControl.RibbonMenuControls.ClickItem(0)
by itself, and a screen shot of the log with both the on screen picture and details tab?
Was the issue resolved? We have just released the new learning course that teaches how to handle Object Not Found error:
I think it may help you.
Yes it was resolved by using this way:
