I'm automating my Windows application.

I'm using Winapp driver and Java language for automation. I am capturing the web elements using UI Spy Tool.

My application is loading, still I can't automate the login page. I'm getting the following error:

My Code:

public class Reporter 

    private static WindowsDriver<WindowsElement> driver;

    public static void main(String args[])  
                           throws MalformedURLException, InterruptedException 
        DesiredCapabilities capabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
        String homePath = System.getenv("USERPROFILE");
        capabilities.setCapability("app",  homePath + "\\AppData\\Local\\Apps\\2.0\\HHCZT7OJ.D37\\61K3K288.OXH\\base..tion_6e5be371fe594b2d_0001.0000_aad96dff3b16369b\\");
        WindowsDriver Session = new WindowsDriver(new URL(""), capabilities);

        Session.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(5, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

        DesiredCapabilities Appcapabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
        Appcapabilities.setCapability("app", "Root");
        WindowsDriver AppSession = new WindowsDriver(new URL(""), Appcapabilities);

        WebDriverWait wait=new WebDriverWait(AppSession, 30);

Now it's working for me that I put thread.sleep 20000

  • Can you paste uiSpy screenshot showing where did you take the data for your locator? Also why is there an empty value in findElementByAccessibilityId in your example?

1 Answer 1

  1. Can you provide the whole app schema? Where is this edit control nested in?
  2. Have you tried first doing:

    driver.findElementByAccessibilityId("txtUserName").click(); driver.findElementByAccessibilityId("txtUserName").sendKeys("");

  • Yes I tried this code, but its not working. getting same error

  • So where is nested this ControlType.Edit? Is it in some DataGrid? Basically you need first to set focus on parent control, and then you can type the keys Commented Jul 12, 2018 at 5:57
  • I am unable to solve my issue, can you please help me. I have been trying to solve this since 2 day
