    We are currently using version 2010.2.830.0 of Web UI Test Studio Dev edition with Visual Studio 2010. We are still having issues when verifying HTML tables. We get the usual "recorder client is unable to communicate with the recording host" error. It works fine with very small tables of figures but not with larger ones.

    Here is a sample file:
    Try verifying the innerhtml for the whole table. It will fail.

    Do you know if this has been fixed yet?

    Please advise. I logged this last year see thread:

    Hi Dave Clarke,

    Thank you for sending us the sample page to work with! Since we never got the sample page from you in the previous thread we were unable to reproduce the problem and find its cause and fix it. I have filed bug 106823 to track this issue.

    Is this problem preventing you from using the product at all i.e. is this a work stoppage issue? If it would help, we can create the same verification manually in a coded step.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Guys

    Any joy with a fix for this? At the moment it is restricting our auto testing considerably (we have a lot of reports with large data tables).

    If you can offer a workaround that would be great.

    Hi Matthew Roberts,

    I am sorry but our software engineers have not had the chance to find and fix this problem. It is still in their queue to be worked on.

    In the meantime you can do this verification in a simple coded step. Here's a sample to help you get started.

    [CodedStep("MyCustom Step Description")]
    public void MyCustomStep()
        HtmlTable dataTable = ActiveBrowser.Find.ByExpression<HtmlTable>("class=DataEntryTable");
