I'm not sure I understand the question.  Are you saying that when the test is running, you can't click on a button in the AUT but when it is not running you can?  This may be by design.  There's an option in TC to prevent user interaction while an automation is running.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

no no, when the test is running, i can click on button, but i click without test script (i click manual), so test project will start only when I click manual on the button in the tested application..


PS: nothing happens after clicking on button via testscript/ test run (as if button didn't work)


it's a fun problem, I don't know how to describe it 🙂



So... The test does not click on the button and just stays doing nothing until you manually click this button. Then test proceeds as expected. Right?


If the above is correct, can you provide us with the piece of the relevant test code and information about what application you are testing, what button you are trying to click and where this button is located?


P.S. I have a feeling that might answer your question.

@David91 did you find any of the advice pieces helpful?

If not, please share more info like the Community suggests. It would be easier to troubleshoot when having actual code to look at. Thank you.
