I'm automating my windows application.

I'm using winapp driver and java language for automation. I am capturing web elements using UI spy tool. My application is loading, still can't automate the login page. I'm getting an error 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 its 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? – Alexey R. Jul 11 '18 at 13:15
  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 – user24314 Jul 12 '18 at 5:53
  • 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 – Michal Dobrzycki Jul 12 '18 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 – user24314 Jul 12 '18 at 17:18
