I need to spy an element that normally is not visible on the web page. It’s part of a pop up list. Basically first I need to click an image of a magnifying glass–> a list of options appears–> click the options I need. The problem here is that as soon as i move away from the glass with the cursor the list disappears, preventing me from spying the actual element i need. In fact, I click f2 in spying mode, I click the magnifying glass and I can see the element in the list , but as soon as the timer goes to zero (f2 timer, so when i go back to spying mode) the element disappear and its impossible to spy it. Any suggestion? i tried with recording mode, thought it worked out but apparently it’s not able to see the element and click it.
Try to use F2 function multiple times to increase the timer.
I thank you for you answer, unfortunately didn’t work out. I manage to spy it tho with click image.
Which application type: Web, Desktop, SAP…?
Can you share screenshot and if possible some details from the Elementstructure (e.g. UiExplorer) of the neighbourhood from the magnifying glass element?
In this case you should either use a shortcut if it’s available.
If not, I suggest you hover over the magnifying glass and then take a screenshot using (Window+Shift+S), because it blocks the image on the screen, after that use the image of the screenshot to click image on the option you want.
