The test fails recognizing the controls in a page which is open in a new tab.
•Open page 1
•Click link “Search Account” in Page 1
•Search Account page is open in a new tab
•Controls are not recognized in the new tab
if I run the script on "Search Account" by itslef, I have no problem, but it seems the problem is with the new tab.
I tried WaitForControlReady() and WaitForControlExist() methods, but no luck.
Not sure if this will help but I have been using the "try/catch"
try and access the object and if it fails into the catch then I try use sendkeys to tab my way through the application.
The try/catch does seem to slow down the automation. I think the try has a 30 sec timeout, there might be some option or code to change the timeout but I haven't looked.
Also, check to see if the problem isn't the control but the page itself. I had issues when the tab changes the web page title or the page loses focus.
Just throwing out ideas.
