I have a desktop app I'm trying to run some simple production canary tests on. I have messed around with Testcomplete a little bit in the past, and ran into this same issue as well, and found a fix, but I cannot remember what it was or where to even look to find it again.
Here's my problem: I try to identify some text fields and buttons, and Testcomplete can only find the entirety of the app, as a whole, as an object, no matter where I put the Object Spy.
I seem to remember some checkbox in a setting somewhere that, once I checked it (months ago, in a different project), allowed Testcomplete to actually recognize objects.
Anyone know where this can be found?
(the app has ID's for everything too, so that's not the problem)
It's a purely desktop, installed application. I've had Testcomplete installed on this pc for almost a year but have not used it much, and my current project is brand new (well, my current test suite). So I'm sure there are plenty of things I haven't yet configured
This ended up being the solution, for me anyways. Checking the * box in both locations marked with arrows, in case anyone in the future is curious. It'll reduce performance, but, that's what will work for me personally. Thanks!!
