    I have a suite of tests which have run successfully for quite some time now for a Silverlight application.

    The application is being migrated to Silverlight 5 and I find a few tests failing with some "Element not found" issues.

    While resolving these issues, I randomly seem to be running into the following exception for tests that just worked successfully a second before:

    Object reference not set to an instance of an 
    object.InnerException:System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to 
    an instance of an object. at 
    Telerik.WebAii.Controls.Xaml.RadComboBox.ToggleDropDown() at 
    Telerik.WebAii.Design.Translators.Xaml.ComboBox.ComboToggleDropDownAction.Execute(IApplication 
    appHost) at 
    ArtOfTest.WebAii.Design.Extensibility.XamlActionDescriptor.Execute(IAutomationHost 
    autoHost) at ArtOfTest.WebAii.Design.Execution.ExecutionEngine.ExecuteStep(Int32 
    order)

    When I quit and reopen TestStudio the issue goes away for a while.

    My test suite is comprised of recorded sets with a few variable extractions and one coded step to set the value of an extracted variable.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Thanks

    Did you all ever figure out a fix for this?
     I am having the same issue.

    Hello Jessica,

    The other ticket was resolved by using a "WaitForElement is Visible" on the RadCombobox. I hope that helps.
