Hello Telerik,

I would like to inform you about the following issue that was found during my work with Free Testing Framework.

There is no possibility to select any value from the ComboBox until clicks on it firstly.

public static void SelectItemByText(this ComboBox comboBox, string itemValue)
{
    comboBox.User.Click();
    comboBox.SelectItemByText(true, itemValue);
}

Kind Regards,
Stanislav Hordiyenko

Hello Stanislav,

This is expected behavior if the underlying Visual Tree is not populated with the ComboBox Items until it is opened. Most Silverlight and WPF applications act this way.

You should be able to use a single line of code by passing an additional argument to open the drop-down before selecting by text:

//comboBox.User.Click();
comboBox.SelectItemByText(true, itemValue, true);


All the best,

Hello Telerik,

I am automating WPF window App, comboBox.SelectItemByText(true, itemValue, true); only clicks on the dropdown and shows value for a second but it doesn't select the value that i have mentioned in itemValue.
I tried using by text as well as by index but it doesn't work.
Please suggest as i need urgent help on this.

Thanks in advance,
Mamta

Hello Mamta,

What do you mean by "it doesn't work"? Does it select a wrong item or it doesn't select a value at all?

Can you provide me with short video demonstration of what exactly you are doing?
You can use Jing screen capture software for your demonstration.

You can send us also the trace log.

Give us more detailed information about your scenario.

Hope to hear from you soon.

I am sorry to hear you are experiencing this issue.

Could you please give us the same information as I asked Mamta:

Also what version of Testing Framework do you use?
