Is it possible to use the finder tool for MS Access applications?
I tried the help guide and the hints here in the forum. Now at least I can see all the controls (buttons, edit fields, ...) in the object browser and TestComplete is also able to highlight them in the form.
But when I try to use the finder tool e.g. for checkpoints, the finder always just highlights the surrounding forms or subforms, but never the button or edit field.
The finder tool also can highlight each single element of the access tool bar, the menu entries or any tab register on the forms - but not the controls on the access forms.
Is there any trick to get finder tool access to the textfields, buttons, combos and so on?
We have reproduced the problem and registered it in our DB. I will check whether it is possible to create a fix for the problem and let you know our results. In the meantime, as a workaround, please use the following approach:
1. Locate the needed object in the object tree (you can use the "Highlight on Sceen" context menu command to find the object faster).
2. Copy the object's full name to Clipboard.
3. Start creating a checkpoint.
4. Paste the needed object's full name instead of using the Finder tool.
Would be really great to get a fix, because the workaround ist quite time consuming as many objects should be checked in our form. Even a textfile with the copied object names seems to be a workaround to avoid jumping around between test recordig and object viewer/tree.
