Hi,

I am trying the newest feature in Q2 release, which is connecting to an existing browser instance. I found the record can not connect to a silverlight site. I saw the following error message:

Recorder must be attached to browser before loading a webpage with a silverlight application. Reload the page to enable recording of silverlight actions and verifications.

Hi Wen,

Thanks for the post and question. This is a know issue, so you would have to click the Refresh button in IE in order for Silverlight recording to begin working for the existing brower.

Kind regards,

We have version 2012.2.1317.0 installed and still getting the same error.

Has this been fixed?

Hi Milan,

I am sorry but this is not something that can be "fixed". Allow me to explain. In order for us to be able to automate your Silverlight application we need to be able to inject our automation hooks into that application. This can only be done as the .XAP file is being downloaded by the browser. If your Silverlight application is already running it's too late for us to inject our hooks into it. This is why we state you must refresh the browser before recording and playback will work. Refreshing the browser will cause the browser to redownload the .XAP file which gives us the opportunity to inject our hooks.

Kind regards,
