Hi Asta,

The error message seems to suggest that Test Studio was unable to find an element that it was looking for. We have a standard error message for this kind of thing. I'm not sure why you got this error message instead. But you should still be able to follow our troubleshooting guide in order to get this resolved. Please check out these articles:

- Change How an Element Is Found

- Unable to locate element failures
You can try to add a WaitForExists to the element you are looking for. It may appear slowly causing the step to fail.

If the issue persists please send us a screen shot of the DOM tree and provide us please with a bigger code snippet (i.e. the part with the find expression).

Hope to hear from you soon.
 

All the best,

Hi Sarika,

Thank you for contacting us.

It seems that you were not able to attach the log file. 

In order to help you best please:

1. Re-attach the log.

2. Send us the code you are using for selecting the combo box.

3. Please send us a screen shot of the DOM tree where the combo box is.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
