Changing AutomationID

Dec 15, 2008 at 2:08 PM

I'm evaluating White for test automation of our products written in Delphi 5.0 

My issue is that each time when I load application AutomationID for a textbox has a new value. Interestingly AudtomationID for textbox of Calculator remains the same. 

Name of the control is "" however ControlType is ControlType.Edit.

Can you please inform how shall identify this control since both methods

SearchCriteria.ByAutomationId() and SearchCriteria.ByText()



can't be used.

Also if you can tell me why does AutomationID of textbox in our application changes and in windows calculator doesn't?
