Hi Telerik Team,

I am getting below error while inserting text textbox in FF but same code is working fine with IE.

Target '[Element: 'iframe:0'' is not a supported element to set text to. at ArtOfTest.WebAii.Core.Actions.SetText(Element targetElement, String text) at ArtOfTest.WebAii.Design.IntrinsicTranslators.Descriptors.SetTextActionDescriptor.Execute(Browser browser) at ArtOfTest.WebAii.Design.Extensibility.HtmlActionDescriptor.Execute(IAutomationHost autoHost) at ArtOfTest.WebAii.Design.Execution.ExecutionEngine.ExecuteStep(Int32 order)

What could be the reason?

One more update, element that I am searching for(e.g with Id = 'ABC') is of type <DIV> in IE but same element is of type <iFrame> in FF,I observed this in DOM.
In the attached file see element with id=ABC.

Hello John,

Thank you for the screenshot. The problem is that sometimes alternative browsers don't properly render the page DOM tree. Since the element is rendered as an <iFrame>, it's simply impossible to set its text with a regular 'SetText' step.

The alternative to this is to invoke a "Blind" Keyboard Typing, using code like this:
Manager.Desktop.KeyBoard.TypeText("This is a sample",200);

Make sure your control has input focus and is in input mode prior to the keyboard typing.

Greetings,
