Two controls with the same path and mapped names after mapping an object


I have two web controls that gets assigned the same mapped name with the same paths when mapping only one of the objects. When played back, the wrong control gets clicked on. Not for sure how that possible... perhaps an anomaly within TestComplete. At any rate, is there a workaround for this? Perhaps updating/renaming the object that I want to click on? Or changing its properties. If so, what method is used to do so.

I've tried deleting the mapped name in the NameMapping tree and remapping with no success.


Thanks in advance.

Can you post here the screenshots of:

-- How the object is NameMapped;

-- Screenshots of both controls from the Object Browser with Properties pane selected
