ClickHTMLelement does not click

Postby mepsztein on Sun Jul 28, 2013 11:50 pm

I have the following statement:

passf=ClickHTMLElement("BUTTON[INNERTEXT= 'Delete Record']")

which does not click the "Delete Record" button and passf returns 0.

If I insert a breakpoint on that statement, it does work.

The only way I was successful is by using the following sequence:

passf=ClickHTMLElement("BUTTON[INNERTEXT= 'Delete Record']")
pause 50 ticks
passf=ClickHTMLElement("BUTTON[INNERTEXT= 'Delete Record']")

This only happens for this particular button. All the other work fine in my script.

Any idea of why this is happening?

It can be either the button not yet ready at its final position within the page use #HTMLPosRetry=1 or = 2 just before the clickhtmlelement line.

Or the click is a bit too much on the left, then add mouse coordinates such as:
ClickHTMLElement("BUTTON[INNERTEXT= 'Delete Record']", left, 5, 5)
