    Hello,
    the principle of my test is to click on a link from a page, which brings me to another page
    My problem is that Telerik can not test the elements of this new page?
    how in this case?
    Best Regards

    Hello Nicolas,

    Is your application HTML or Silverlight? Does the new page load in the same browser window or in a pup-up window? If it's a pop-up, is it HTML or Modal? Do you mean that no actions are recorded on the new page? Or does hover over highlighting not work?

    As you can see there are many variables and the more information you can provide, the better. If the app you're testing is publicly accessible we'd like to test it directly and reproduce the issue. A copy of the test or the entire project (within a .zip file) would be helpful.

    If you can record actions and verifications against the new page yet one of those steps fails, please provide the Step Failure Details by using the "Export Result to File" feature.

    All the best,

    hello;

    Thank you first for your reply ;
    1-My applicaion  is an  html application (web)
    2-The loading of the browser is in a new html page 
    My application is not accessible to the public, it is not yet in production,
    its principle is as if we did a search on google, you click on a link and you fall on a new page to test these elements
    the error message I received on most of these steps is unsuccessful:
    System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to instance of year year object.

    best regards

    Hello Nicolas,

    Thanks for the additional information. Unfortunately that error message is broad and doesn't tell us much out of context. The Step Failure Details feature I mentioned in my previous post is the most robust way to provide us with as much information about the failure as possible.

    All the best,

    Hi Nicolas,

    Step 6 fails on line 87 and step 7 fails on line 104. I'd need to see those and their surrounding lines for context. Step 7 specifically tells us its verification on string comparisons failed and why:

    String match failed (CompareType:Exact). - [Expected:03.84.92.30.67],[Actual: ]

    I successfully navigated to the URL in step 1 of your test. If your app is now publicly accessible, the fastest way for us to troubleshoot is to see the issue first-hand. You could attach your project (within a zip file) to a support ticket, which unlike this thread is confidential.

    All the best,

    hello,

     My real problem is not the error messages but rather on the navigation to another page by clicking a link, or by extract and navigate to its URL(using Href in the page dom)
    how to do this step in coded?

    cordially

    Hello Nicolas,

    There are different methods to locate an element and click it in code.

    One way is to find it based on its HREF, as you asked:

    Element e = ActiveBrowser.Find.ByAttributes("href=http://www.google.com");
    ActiveBrowser.Actions.Click(e);

    You can find by any attribute you'd like, such as Id, Name, etc. Please see here for more information.

    If your element has been added to your Element Repository (by using the Add to Project Elements feature), you can find it and click it with one line:

    Pages.CHTMLCommaHtml.Pageheader0LnkManageMyAccountLink.Click();

    If you were referencing a different method of extraction, please read our article on how to Data Bind an Extraction Step through the UI.

    Finally, any normal step recorded through the UI can be customized in code by choosing that feature from the Test Step Context Menu. Just right click the step, convert to code, and start customizing. A converted step cannot be converted back, however.

    All the best,

     [CodedStep(@"Click 'Navigate to link'")]
            public void TestImpresionPageResults_CodedStep()
            {      
             var printDiv= ActiveBrowser.Find.ByExpression<HtmlAnchor>(new HtmlFindExpression("id=list-print","|","href=~print"));
              string url;
                foreach (iAttribute attr in printDiv.Attributes)
                  {
                    {
                      if (attr.Name.Equals("href"))
                      url = attr.Value;
                      break;             
                     }  
                Log.WriteLine("sLienEncode = "+url);
                ActiveBrowser.NavigateTo(url);
            }

    Hi Nicolas,

    I think your brackets are simply out of order. In my test I also had to initialize the string "url" as null. Try this instead:

    var printDiv= ActiveBrowser.Find.ByExpression<HtmlAnchor>(new HtmlFindExpression("id=list-print","|","href=~print"));

    //I inserted the following Assert to assure the above find logic was correct.
    //Assert.IsNotNull(printDiv);
    string url = null;
    foreach (iAttribute attr in printDiv.Attributes)
         {
              if (attr.Name.Equals("href"))
                   {
                        url = attr.Value;
                        break;            
                   }
           } 

    Log.WriteLine(
    "sLienEncode = "+url);
    ActiveBrowser.NavigateTo(url);
