attachnames disappearing after lengthy test run
Hi All, Just wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem before, or if anyone has any suggestions/ fixes.
We're testing an app written in VB6. The screen we're having issues with is a modal dialog box containing two buttons and a list view. The top level of these buttons is a gui object which contains a button caption. This is what we are attaching on. Sub layers of this gui object are two ThunderRT6 picture box elements used to create button shadows etc.
What we're noticing is that after a lengthy automation run the gui objects we usually attach to disappear and we're only left with the thunder picture boxes which dont have enough unique information for us to be attaching on. In fact the whole window seems to change from a VBWindow to a ThunderRT6FormDC. The strangest thing is that TestPartner will bring up and close this window a large number of times perfectly before we run into the problem, and the issue is completely restricted to this single window we have no other issues with the rest of the application.
I cant work out if its a test partner issue or an issue with the application we're testing. Anyone got any ideas?
Re: attachnames disappearing after lengthy test run
I'd suggest you make a sample app with just the modal box and submit it to support. Perhaps they can duplicate the issue. How long is "lengthy automation"?

Lengthy is probably over 3 hours. The application has multiple configurations which it runs in, a run through on a single config takes about 3 hours. and we attempt to run up to 6 configs in a single test run, unfortunately it never lasts that long and usually dies due to this issue in the second or third config.
I've sent a support request to compuware as well so we'll see what they have to say. Just thought I'd try here aswell.
