I`m testing a web page. On my XP work machine, when I highlight a hyperlink, the hyperlink flashes as expected. At home a while ago I am sure this also worked. But now at home (using a dell laptop), when I use highlight the links are not highlighted - instead just different areas of the screen are highlighted - its as if QTP is out of sync - the coordinates are off. If I run the test it seems to work!
The screen res is different from what I use at work but I have tried changing this to no avail. Any thoughts?
Please see the attached screenshot. Note that I haven`t highlighted a link but instead tried to highlight the Login button - a black box has highlighted an area above it and to the left.
Re: Problems with Highlight in the Object repository
I`m at work now and can confirm that the browsers are the same version,and QTP is patched to SP2 level on both my home machine and work machine. The scripts work fine at work, and despite the highlight problem, the scripts work fine at home. For example, despite the login button being highlighted in my message above in the wrong place, the login function works perfectly well.
I could try an update run later but shouldn`t have to be doing this - should behave the same across all machines. I doubt it`ll work anyway.
