Use Application/Browser is not working as expected

I am working on web automation using the Object Repository. Where I am using the Use Application/Browser activity and set the Window attach mode property to the Application instance.

During the automation on click of a button it actually redirects to a new tab and their automation should continue like finding the elements and doing the action. But the problem here is not going into the new tab instead trying to find the element in the same tab and resulting the element not found issue although element is available in the new tab.

Any solution?

have you tried yo detach the Use Browser and use a new one pointing at the URL from the new tab?

Also you can use Activate on an element on the new tab previously spied to be more sure that the application is pointing at the current tab.

Hi @stefano_negro,

I guess URL issue. I created new screen for that tab and defined elements with in that screen. That helped actually. I guess you’re also pointing the same.

Thank you.
