Checkpoint field selector selects entire grid rather than a field on a line

Hi,

I'm starting to build one of my first tests. I'm testing a desktop application Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016.

 

During recording, I created a checkpoint. I selected the "Drag the target to an object". When I dragged the cursor to a section of the page that shows line details, the entire line details grid object was highlighted with the red line - I could not select a specific field on one of the grid lines. Of course, when I let go of the mouse button, the checkpoint thought I was selecting the entire grid.

Am I missing something? How do I select a field within a grid?
Screenshot showing the highlighting of the grid is attached.

Thx

Ron

Re: Checkpoint field selector selects entire grid rather than a field on a line

Hi all,

 

For my particular app (Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016), changing the MSAA options does not work.  However, working with SmartBear Support, I was able to configure UI Automation in much the same way - Identify the object using Object Browser, then including its WndCaption in the list.

try enabling the * for MSAA in your current project property settings, and then restart your app and see if it can see into the cells

Re: Checkpoint field selector selects entire grid rather than a field on a line

Hi all,
I didn't try entering * in the Wndclass property, but I did find instructions on how to identify the Wndclass of the particular control of the grid I am trying to rest. That didn't work.

However, entering the same information in the the Open Applications | UI Automation did solve my problem. Here's a link to more info:

I hope this information is useful.

Thanks,

Ron
