Object does not exist

I try to let TC enter login details in a textbox. The error keeps showing during playback "The object [...] does not exist".

Although the textbox is recognized by TC and object spy confirms the object name, the SetText operation keeps failing. (Already tried OCR and On-Screen Action)

I also tried a Keys method, but nothing happens.

 

I did achieve to make TC click (activate) the textbox through an Image Based Action.

Unfortunately, the image based action doesn't combine with a SetText..

 

Please see my screenshots. Hope someone has a suggestion. Thanks in advance.

without having any additional information, I'd wager that the textbox object is dynamically named each time. You can see that its name mapping goes something like Aliases.Eikon.Something.Somethingelse....textbox{0abfsdg28423-random alphanumeric characters}

So what you need to do is go into your name mapping file, and use the asterisk (*) to wildcard out all the random alpha nuemric characters following the word textbox. 

Here is a great video covering how to handle these objects: https://support.smartbear.com/screencasts/testcomplete/reliable-tests-for-dynamic-objects/

Hope this helped ๐Ÿ™‚
