Coded UI :How to select element from list which get closed when we click crosshair tool on Test builder


  • While automating my application i came across certain button/ drop-down list,When i click on that list items get displayed.

    I'm trying to capture these list items using coded Ui test builder , but if i click crosshair icon then list will be closed.

    I also tried to capture using WindowsLogo+i as it show on tool tip, but it will open setting window. (Windows 10)

    so, Is there any why i can capture these type of elements ?

    or can suggest code to select Item using Name property.

  • Hi friend,

    I tested it in my side, and I encountered the same issue as yours in windows 10 while I am using vs2010.

    But it works fine in windows 7 which I also tested.

    I've helped you submit a feedback to Microsoft connect, you could comment on and vote it. I think the engineers of Microsoft will evaluate it seriously.

    Please mark this reply as answer which will be helpful to others who get the same issue as yours, they'll notice it and go to vote this feedback and comment on it. Thanks in advance.
