"There was an attempt to perform an action at a point, which is beyond the screen" error

Hi,

 

I'm a new TC user and I used "Record Keyword Test". When I tried to run the test I got "There was an attempt to perform an action at a point, which is beyond the screen".

 

Can someone please help me?

Thanks

When you recorded the test, you clicked on something or filled in a field that is not in view when the test is played back.  TestComplete has to be able to "see" the object on the screen in order to perform an action on it.

Kindly Keep the screen at 100% zoom before recording your scripts.

If you are to be involved in browser based testing, keep the browser in maximized mode so that you won't face such issues in future 🙂
