In a system used by our customer we need to click on one of the menu items, but the selector created by “indicate on screen” is not good enough. I need to open this particular element in Ui Explorer to use some of “unselected items”. The problem is, when I go to Ui Explorer and try to use “indicate element”, what I get is “The UiElement is no longer valid”:
I presume the reason is, when I select the menu item, Ui Explorer window maximizes, the menu in the system in question closes, and so the element is in fact no longer valid. But I would presume such a sophisticated tool would be able to catch the selector before it disappears?
At first I thought this is a problem with the customer’s system, but now I see it can be easily replicated, for instance in MS Excel. Open Ui Explorer and try to get the selector for the “More colors” field:
It works when doing “indicate on screen” directly in the activity, but doesn’t work from withing Ui Explorer.
Any thoughts on how to get Ui explorer to show me this element’s selector?
Please mind I am not looking for a workaround like image matching or hotkeys, our customer is expecting a strong selector here.
Any help would be appreciated.
