Does anybody met a similar problem?
There is a GUI map. I run GUI map Editor, locate an object in the list, and click 'Show'; object highlights. However, if I click 'Find' in GUI Map Editor and click the same object in the application, I get 'The object is not in the <...> GUI file'.
I can make it work only if I use ALL available properties including 'count' (for combobox) in Physical Description of object. But combobox can have different number of items in the list and such a description makes it useless.
Note: application is Java web-based and uses DHTML (not all objects are visible at the same moment).
This is description of object. If I remove 'count', it does not work.
TOOLKIT_class: "Internet Explorer_TridentCmboBx"
Re: GUI Map
And again about the question.
If I use in GUI map description of object from GUI Spy ('All properties' mode), it also works in only one direction - 'Show'. If I try 'Find' - it does not work. Why?
Re: GUI Map
I have the same problem if I modify the properties of the object and add (or subtract) an property other than those EXACTlY listed as the "Configuration Learned Properties". I think this occurs because when doing a FIND, the tool starts with the "Configuration Properties" list, grabs those values from the object, then tries to match it EXACTLY with something in the GUI map. If the item in the GUI map has more, or less properties, the match fails. The SHOW command works different than that. The SHOW only depends on EXACT match of property values and doesn't use the "Configure Properties" list.
To see if this info applies to your situation, goto: Tools>Gui Map Configuration
and select the object type, click the CONFIGURE botton, then look at the OBLIGATORY properties listed. Do these properties EXACTLY match what is in the description of your object ?
Re: GUI Map
When you are tryng to locate your object/window in GUI Map edito, remember to run your configuration script first i.e when your configure say and object to a push button, you should run this script first then go to GUI map editor. For your info, you can add configuration scripts anywhere is your script and that allows you to switch back and forth properties of your objects and windows. This is especially useful if you have windows and objects which have common properties as default(design).
