TC unable to record keystrokes

Hi,

I don't know why, I cannot record keystrokes anymore.

TC records clicks, but it's like if the keyboard was silent.

Anyone has an idea please ?

Thank you !

(TC v14.30, both web pages and windows client)

Re: TC unable to record keystrokes

Hi @m_essaid ,

 

I advise you to check Restrictions section in "Keys Method"  in below url

I think this would help.

Re: TC unable to record keystrokes

Is this error occuring during the recording of your tests?

If so, once you click stop on the recording, what does the recorded test steps look like for that given action?

Does the keystrokes that you performed not show up within your UI during the initial recording stage? during the playback stage? is it recorded at all?

If this is a keyword test, could you try dragging in a call object method step and do a Keys action and simulate the keystrokes that you want?

 

Best,

Re: TC unable to record keystrokes

Hi Justin,

I have the keystrokes recorded when I don't launch TestComplete in admin mode.

In admin mode, no.

Is this usual ?

Thank you,
