    Hi All,

    During my test i need to verify the following span html is visible:
    <span class="cvIcon"><div style="display: none;" class="tooltip"><span class="ttCond">Shown if:</span> <span class="questionShortTooltip" title="Question 1">&nbsp;</span>Choice 2 </div></span>

    The IsVisible() method  for HtmlSpan returns false  under IE 9.0 even i see that span is clearly visible on page. Under FF all is working as expected.
    This span has  next computed styles under IE  if I use GetComputedStyle method: display:block, visibility: inherited

    Under IE the styles look like on screnshot below

    We use next hardware:
     OS: Win 7 x32/64
     Browser: IE 9.0
     Browser: Firefox 17.0.1
     TTF: 2012.

    Best regards,

    We tried to reproduce the problem but with no success. Indeed if you have element with style “display:block, visibility: inherited” the element will be visible (as long as it’s parent is not hidden).  But also in that case element’s IsVisible method will return true.

    It is possible thought that the application you test changed the element style dynamically and Test Studio has not updated its state correctly thus verify against element’s old style.

    Can you try to refresh DOM tree just before the verification?
    You can refresh DOM tree by calling: ActiveBrowser.RefreshDomTree();

    All the best,

    P.S. If this suggestion does not work would you provide a web page where the problem can be reproduced?
