I'm currently experiencing an issue like this.
Using the latest trial version of TestComplete
1. Select element in Object Spy
2. Pulls up properties, than right click on FullName > Show Object in Name Mapping
Result: Program hangs forever...
Please note that this thread is actually SEVERAL years old. The most recent post is from December 2014 so it might be better to start a new thread.
In any case... If you haven't mapped anything yet, it's entirely likely that there is nothing in NameMapping to view. So, showing the object in NameMapping might just be going into some major search that is not breaking out.
Please double check to make sure that the object actually is mapped (In Object Spy, there should be a "Mapped Name" property that, if it is mapped, should be populated). If it's not mapped, you can map it from the object browser.
Yes that was the issue - Object was not mapped yet. It does cause a nasty freeze & crash though for me.
The freeze/crash may be worth reporting as a bug directly to SmartBear support at https://support.smartbear.com/message/?prod=TestComplete
I am current having the same issue of Test complete hanging when user object spy to locate one of my web application page. something like there are 4-5 tier web pages, object spy can find object and mapping them in p1-p3 pages , but hanging on p4. can someone explain this?
I used the latest TestComplete version 14.10.
