This may be a question for our developers but I thought I would ask here
first. Does anyone know how the Object Index is generated. For example -
There is a logon screen to our applications which has an automated script
that relies on the object index of the edit boxes for input of the username,
password, etc. Without any changes to my workstation or version of the
software the object index changed for the edit boxes causing the script to
fail. I just want to figure out what could possible cause this and what
questions I might need to ask our developers. Thanks for any help.

The History that I've had with object indexs and Delphi, is that the object
index is the same on different workstation and bulids unless there is a change
to that for.

I've been down this road before. For me the best solution was to put actions,
clicking a control that is only recognized by the Object Index into a global
or function. Therefor if it does change in the application you only have one
change it in your robot scripts. I have also had an experience with a
end where object indexes changed from workstation to workstation, but not on the
workstation with the same build.

I had these problems on a Delphi application until I installed the Delphi
enabler. After that it was able to identify the objects by name (instead
of objectindex) which is more reliable.
Don't know if this helps - depends on what development environment you're
