Hi All

After recording a test step where I enter text into a input box, and I attempt to run it. The recording shows that the text is entered however when I select the search button I do not get the expected result I'm looking for. I have attempted this manually and it works fine. What I am suspecting is that the recording for some reason things that the text is not entered in the input field.

Below is the code in which i am using to attempt to enter the text

Manager.Desktop.KeyBoard.TypeText("alice", 50, 100); 

and here is the html that the input field is using

<input class="t-input" id="ProductSearchTerm-input" name="ProductSearchTerm-input" type="text" autocomplete="off">

Hi Chris,

I am sorry to hear that  you are experiencing this issue.

Usually the code that you are using should simulate real typing. If I understand you correctly, entering the text should trigger some Javascript function which calls others text boxes?

In order to resolve this, you can try to set the TriggerjQueryEvent property of the step to true. You can do this manually in a coded step. See here for more information. 
For example:
This code will trigger the jQuery ".change" event of a checkbox. 
Please change this line of code according to your needs (i.e. change the element and the event if needed).

We have also logged a feature request on this, which you can follow in our Feedback Portal.

You might also find useful reading our documentation about working with Javascript in coded steps. 

If this doesn't help you, please provide us with a copy of your test and if it is possible grant us access to your application so we can reproduce the issue on our end and give you a solution.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
