So, do I understand correctly that the URL property of the mapped page object contained an empty value after recording a test with a web page? If this is the case, please let me know whether you can reproduce the problem. If you can, please send us steps to recreate this behavior, and we will try to investigate it here.
That is exactly right. I don't know what to tell you about "reproducing" it, because it happens all the time on all pages I test. There is no rhyme or reason to it... I'll search for "dog," and the search results page will get a Name Mapped URL. In the same test, I'll record a new search for "cat," and that results page will get no URL in the Name Mapping.
It's not just search pages, but pages all throughout our site. Feel free to PM me and I'll give you the site URL, but it happens for all the sites we manage.
This happens on my work PC running XP, and my home machine running Vista, so please don't try to suggest that it's machine specific. I can't believe I am the only person in the world who is encountering this issue.
We have just released TestComplete 7.50 which has several changes that can affect the issue you describe. Could you please install this version of the tool and check whether the problem can be reproduced with it?
If the problem still occurs, please contact us via the Contact Support form (http://www.automatedqa.com/support/message/) and send me the URL of your web page along with the detailed steps to recreate the problem. We will look into this.
