Unable to edit Combobox items' identification property

Hi,

I couldn't update combobox items' property in name mapping. When I rightclick the item in aliases screen, I get a warning includes "Unable to find the object that matches the "Radcomboboxitem123...." item". In the warning I click "Edit the identification properties of ""adcomboboxitem123...."", but the update name mapping window is empty except for WPFControlAutomationID. I want to add the text property.

When I use object spy-->point and fix, I could reach only basic properties, I couldn't reach advanced properties. I get the warning "Unable to show the advanced properties of the object, because the object does not exist..." 

How could i update this item's property?

Thank you.

Re: Unable to edit Combobox items' identification property

What is your need for inspecting the drop down value/item?  If you're looking at actually selecting the item, if this is a WPF ComboBox, you should be able to just call a ClickItem method to select the item.

Re: Unable to edit Combobox items' identification property

Thank you for your reply. I could't fix it but I get rid of the problem. I used shortcut keys on the keyboard instead of using right-click menu item. I was lucky this time because I used that object only in two tests.

Re: Unable to edit Combobox items' identification property

Thank you for your reply. 

But I could click the combobox item. My test run successfully. What I need is, sometimes developers change the order of items, so I need to update namemapping. In this case i couldn't reach the identification property. It seems empty.

I guess I'm close to a solution. When I use Get Value operation, I could reach advanced properties unless it couldn't highlighted. Next step how could i add the property to item's name mapping properties.

Re: Unable to edit Combobox items' identification property

If the test ran successfully, then there's no reason to update your NameMapping as that is what determines object identification.  If they re-order the items and your test still passes, then the mapping is fine as it is.

I haven't chance to try yet. Because dev team haven't change any combobox item's property. When it happens, I'll write it here. 

Thank you for your support.

Re: Unable to edit Combobox items' identification property

Hi,

Now I have problem. Not combobx item but similar right-click menu item. Properties have been changed but I couldn't update because on Update Name Mapping screen there isn't any property. It is empty. I could reach new properties with object spy-->Point and Fix. But I don't know how could I remap with the old object in the name mapping area?

I use keyword test not script.

Thanks in advance

If the component is on screen, you can edit the NameMapping to use any properties you want for identification.

Re: Unable to edit Combobox items' identification property

Thank you for your reply. Cause it is right click menu item, it couldn't be onscreen when I click the object on name mapping for editing. I disappears. So I couldn't update name mapping object, it comes empty.
