Re: recording is not capturing the keyboard

I would go back through the setup for Delphi applications and make sure all your settings are still correct.  It's possible that the update inadvertently changed one of these settings.  Let us know the outcome either way please.

Re: recording is not capturing the keyboard

Maybe but you gave us very little information to go on.

 

What's your TestComplete version?

What kind of app are you testing?

Is this a new problem?  Has the recording function ever worked for you?

Is there a line in your test that has the keystrokes and they aren't playing back? We need a screenshot please.

If you create a simple test on your own without the record, do the keystrokes work?

Re: recording is not capturing the keyboard

Version 10.10.1042.7, Desktop delphi app, error is new I was able to reproduce the recording I created a recording of the windows calculator but without success.

 

 

in the recording I clicked on the first field I pressed ENTER key typed "RTERTET" ENTER key and typed "YTERTYRTYT" but just recorded the click

function Test1()
{
Sys.Process("sysmovs").VCLObject("FrmSps").Window("MDIClient").VCLObject("FrmEst109").VCLObject("PnlArea").VCLObject("EdtCodigo").Click(22, 15);
}

Re: recording is not capturing the keyboard

Okay, now can you create a keyword test manually that performs the same task and see if that one works?
