Hello,

When I try to run my test in FF I get the following error:

ArtOfTest.Common.Design.Exceptions.ExecutionException: Unable to find the target host (Browser/SilverlightApp) to locate an element. Failure: System.TimeoutException: Wait for condition has timed out
   at ArtOfTest.Common.WaitSync.CheckResult(WaitSync wait, String extraExceptionInfo)

   at ArtOfTest.WebAii.Design.Execution.ExecutionEngine.ExecuteStep()
   --- End of inner exception stack trace ---

Failed step:
Verify attribute 'src' has 'NotContain' value of 'disabled' on 'CPRibbonGroup3BtnRibbReadCardImageImage'

Although in IE8 all works fine.

Could you, please, clarify what is wrong?
Thanks.

Hi Svetlana,

Thanks for the post and I'm sorry you ran into this problem. So could you confirm if the failure is occurring over a page element in an IFrame or in a browser popup window?

Also, it looks like this is happening against an html page, but please correct me if it is happening on a Silverlight control. If it is html, if  you could also please send the html code sample to us to check out and test on this end.

Best wishes,

Hello Nelson,

You are right, this error occurs against an html page.

<div id="ctl00_CP_RibbonGroup3_btnRibbReadCard_Start" class="largeRibbonButtonStart">
</div>
<div id="ctl00_CP_RibbonGroup3_btnRibbReadCard_Item" class="largeRibbonButtonItem"
    style="width: 41px;">
    <div class="largeRibbonButtonImage">
        <img src="/Images/Icons/card_reader_32.png" id="ctl00_CP_RibbonGroup3_btnRibbReadCard_Image"></div>
    <div id="ctl00_CP_RibbonGroup3_btnRibbReadCard_Text" class="largeRibbonButtonText">
        Read card</div>
</div>
<div id="ctl00_CP_RibbonGroup3_btnRibbReadCard_End" class="largeRibbonButtonEnd">
</div>

Hi again Svetlana,

Thanks for sending the code, I was able to reproduce this with the code and in an IFrame in Firefox 3.6.3. Please try deleting the BaseURL for the frame in WebUI and try running the test again (see the attached screenshot for reference). 

Kind regards,
Nelson

Actually I just came across this post. I am encountering the exact same thing when trying to record and play back a script using either Chrome or FF.

As reported previously, the script plays back in IE just fine but not in Chrome (nor in FF).

I tried this same thing, deleting the base url and it resolved my problem too.

The issue looks to be the same in that I was trying to access screen elements within a dynamic control using frames.

Regards,

Ken
