    Hello,

    We are evaluating Test Studio at the moment and I have an interesting issue.

    I have a test which logs a user in via SimulateRealClick and performs some further actions. As currently written, this test fails in IE but runs fine across Firefox, Chrome and Safari in Quick Execution mode.

    However, with this test executed via a Test List accross all 4 browsers, the failure of IE (being first) appears to be causing Firefox (second) to fail too. Although the mouse cursor is moved to the correct location (for SimulateRealClick), the click never actually executes.

    If the test is run against Firefox ONLY as a Test List, or with IE removed and Chrome & Safari remaining, it passes.

    I have attached a screenshot of the timeline view of the Test List - the first two tests are FF only, and you can clearly see that each named browser execution afterwards has FF as failing if it is preceded by IE.

    Any advice please?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hi Chris,
    I'm sorry to hear you're having problems with this.

    Nothing comes to mind, unfortunately. Most likely this issue is peculiar to your application.

    If you can provide us with direct access to your application - we'll be happy to troubleshoot this for (you can give us the details through the support system instead of a public forum).

    This issue should be easy to work around. Try:
    1) Blind clicks:

    2) If the non-simulate click still works: you can create two clicks. The non-simulated will only run against IE:

    I hope this helps.
