Howdy folks, ok, so, I use contentText quite a bit to identify and perform things with various objects,,, has worked fine... but... what I have found now... is on the systems where I performed an upgrade from TC 11 to TC 12... my scripts where I reference objects defined with the contentText, no longed work? They blow up my iExplorer browser with errors.
BUT... where I did a fresh install of TC 12.... all works fine an dandy??
So, something is not quite right... environmentally... I must have not done "something" for the systems where I did an upgrade?
Any ideas or suggestions?
We have multiple licenses and systems etc... so I was able to validate this for a few machines and the only common denominator is upgrade, scripts using contentText blow up the app under test... but fresh installs... scripts work as they should. Weird.
Define 'Blow Up'
Way more information will be needed to figure out what you're seeing.
am using VB Scripting... the command is :
If Sys.Browser().FindChild("contentText","Welcome to the team",40).Exists Then
This command has always worked and still does on machines where we did a fresh install vs upgrade.
The error I get is :
The IEXPLORE.EXE process crashed
Am using IE 11
When using chrome, no problem.
So, if on fresh install of 12, all ok.
If on upgrade install from 11 to 12, blows up using IE but works with chrome.
Howdy again... even better... came in this morning, fired up Test Complete... got message for a new update being available... I accepted and installed same. No longer have the problem!!!!
So, I immediately went to another of my machines where I had the same problem... again, was prompted for a new update.... took it.. problem solved again! Fantastic! Coincidence? I dunno, lol, all I know is my problem is gone.
Thanks SB, ya'll rock!
Thanks also to those that replied, I appreciate it.
Sweet! Totally awesome.
Hmmm, really weird, as of today, trying to use the Spy now on a variety of pages, results in almost a "hang" with the big red square around the entire page and not "seeing" any of the objects etc. Still with IE 11... and TC12. ONLY still on the systems I updated and not an issue with the machines where I did a fresh install. So, a bunch of my tests that were able to click etc on objects on these pages, no longer can do so.
Not sure what is happening now....
So, I uninstalled everything... reinstalled TC12...
and am now back to the original issue with TC12 and the contentText.... IE PROCESS.EXE crash.
Sigh. Really strange. Any suggestions appreciated. As of now again, my test suite again will not execute. Again, same two machines,
Thanks again for any and all advice and suggestions,
Does anyone know how to reset this one to "Unsolved" again, lol. As it still has exact same problem.
