Error when invoking Click, on Button with parameters

May 6, 2011 at 7:43 PM

I have a WPF MVVM application that has a button I am trying to test.  I find the button and test its attributes.  This all passes just fine.  Then I have white click it.  While you are watching this run it all looks fine.  The button is clicked and the view loads in the content control just like it is supposed to.  The problem is that white does not seem to notice that everything is fine and errors out.  To test what was going on I added some more clicks after the first one and it never gets to those.  I am running this in Gallio test runner with mbUnit.

Snippet of code:
 Dim SearchCriteria As SearchCriteria = SearchCriteria.ByAutomationId("TransactionsButton")
 Dim EmployeeNamesListBox As Button = _MainWindow.Main.Get(Of Button)(SearchCriteria)
 Assert.IsNotNull(EmployeeNamesListBox, "can't find button with name: {0}", EmployeeNamesListBox)
 Assert.IsTrue(EmployeeNamesListBox.Visible, "Button with name {0} should be visible", EmployeeNamesListBox)
 Assert.IsTrue(EmployeeNamesListBox.Enabled, "Button with name {0} should be enabled", EmployeeNamesListBox)

the exception says the window is busy, have you tried to wait still window is active again?

I tried this:

Dim _testmain As Window = _app.GetWindow("Window", InitializeOption.NoCache)
Dim TestSearchCriteria As SearchCriteria = SearchCriteria.ByAutomationId("TransactionsButton")
Dim TestButton As Button = _testmain.Get(Of Button)(TestSearchCriteria)

 The App opens,  The button is clicked, The View shows up, and then the application sits and waits until it times out and closes.  I added wait cursors but white never seems to notice that the view is done loading.  The view only takes a part of a second to load.  It is so fast that I can barely see the wait cursor flash on the screen.

have a look in the  configuration file of your application, have you set the configuration settings as described here


try increase Busytimeout
