I’ve created a script that runs well on IE7 but not on Firefox 3.0.  My script opens a URL and logs in.  It then verifies the existence of items on the page, such as the footer and links that exists in it.  In the footer there is link titled “Policy Statements."  I have a step in the script with description, "Verify 'TextContent' 'Contains' 'Policy Statements' on 'a_Policy_Statements'."  The script fails with the following error:

 

'11/2/2009 11:57:38 AM' - 'Pass' : Verify element 'a_Policy_Statements' 'is' visible.

'11/2/2009 11:57:38 AM' - 'Fail' : Verify 'TextContent' 'Contains' 'Policy Statements' on 'a_Policy_Statements'

--------------------------------------------------

Failure Information:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ArtOfTest.WebAii.Design.Exceptions.VerificationException: String match failed (CompareType:Contains). - [Expected:Policy Statements],[Actual:Policy

                                                                                    Statements]                                                                                                                           

   at ArtOfTest.WebAii.Design.Execution.ExecutionEngine.ExecuteStep()

 

I’ve highlighted the problem.  Notice that there is a huge space between “Policy” and “Statements.”  This exact same test works fine in IE7.  Why would Firefox report this text differently than IE does?

 

Any help is appreciated.

Hello Mike,

Could you please post your link attributes? And which FF 3.0.x version is it specifically? I'd like to get a repro going on this end.

Hi Nelson,

I'm using Firefox 3.0.14.  Where can I get the attributes you are looking for?  The following is from 'View Source'?

              </div>
               
                <div id="footer">
                    <div class="footerSection" style="margin-right: 300px; width: auto">
                        <a href="http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/policy/privacy.htm" target="_blank">Policy
                        Statements</a>

It does kind of look like there is a gap in the label.  But both browsers, IE and Firefox, display the label correctly.  It seems that only WebUI reads it differently.

Hello Mike Ideus,

Thanks for the post, I was able to repo the problem and post a bug. AS a work around, please convert your verification to code and add something like the following:

[CodedStep(@"Verify 'TextContent' 'Contains' 'Policy Statements' on 'a_Policy_Statements'")]
   public void WebAiiTest1_CodedStep()
   {
       // Verify 'TextContent' 'Contains' 'Policy Statements' on 'a_Policy_Statements'
       HtmlAnchor a_Policy_Statements = Pages.CUsersnelsonARTOFTESTDesktopLinkReprohtml.a_Policy_Statements;
       a_Policy_Statements.Wait.ForExists(10000);
       //a_Policy_Statements.AssertContent().TextContent(ArtOfTest.WebAii.Controls.HtmlControls.HtmlAsserts.StringCompareType.Contains, "Policy Statements");
       Assert.IsTrue(a_Policy_Statements.TextContent.Contains("Policy") && a_Policy_Statements.TextContent.Contains("Statements"));
   }

Let us know if that works for you.

Kind regards,

Thanks Nelson.  That works, however it's not a good permanent work around since it would allow any characters in between Policy and Statements, such as "Policy www.telerik.com Statements."  The test would pass and that isn't a good thing.  Hopefully you guys can figure out how to resolve this in a future release.

Thanks!

Hello Mike,

Yes, you are right that this would not be a permanent solution, but we'll look to get a more permanent solution in the next release that verification step.
