Clicking "work-items" fails

#1

hi,
i am having a strange problem.

I’m trying to click the button “work-items” on “Acme-System 1” https://www.acme-test.com/ but it fails every time.
(Browser is open, site is shown, logged in, but if i start my simple click sequence it fails).

My Click-Selector for this button is:
…webctrl aaname=’ Work Items’ parentid=‘dashmenu’ tag=‘BUTTON’ /…
in an “attach browser”-container
…html app=‘firefox.exe’ title=‘ACME System 1 - Dashboard’ /…

i tried different variations but the only workaround to get the button is through “OCR”. But i think there must be a better solution :grinning:

Hello @markus, I was trying this too and as far as I can remember, there is some other characters before the “Work Items”.
Does this selector work on yours?

<webctrl aaname='*Work Items' parentid='dashmenu' tag='BUTTON' />
