can't find Textbox using SimpleSpy with UIA wrapper

Recommended Posts

i want to login to this website on Chrome using UIA wrapper.


Using SimpleSpy i try to find the username field and the password field, but i can't seem to manage this?

The LOGIN button can be found using CTR + W, also the username/password text labels, but not the Input fields themself.

Chrome Inspect Element gives me these elements:

<input type="text" maxlength="255" id="tbUsername" data-testid="accountAreaLoginUsername" tabindex="1" autocomplete="on">

<input type="password" maxlength="255" id="tbPassword" data-testid="accountAreaLoginPassword" tabindex="2" autocomplete="off">

Is it possible to control these using UIA?

otherwise i just need to hardcode some mouseclicks/keystrokes, but would rather do it nicely :)

Did you turn on accessibility. Did you read the iuiautomation thread with tips and tricks.

hi junkew, you are the other of the wrapper isn't?

i read 25% of the thread and started Chrome using this 

$strChromeExeFolder="C:Program FilesGoogleChromeApplication"
$strChromeStartup="https://www.betsson.com --force-renderer-accessibility"
$strChromeExe=$strChromeExeFolder & "chrome.exe "
afterward i run simplespy and it can't seem to find those to login fields. I assumed that if simplespy can't find it, it would be kinda difficult?
EDIT noticed that SimpleSpy can pick up the input fields on Internet Explorer but not on Chrome; will do more testing/reading tomorrow!
