Cuite 4.5 framework is failing to find the control ....

Jul 22, 2014 at 7:27 AM

Note: code is written for Gmail login screen

I have written piece of code in object repository for searching controls. Please any one take a look at the below code and help me in resolving the issue

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using CUITe.Controls.HtmlControls;
using Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UITesting;

namespace cuite4._5.Object_Repository
public class PALogin : CUITe_BrowserWindow
    public new string sWindowTitle = "Sign in - Google Accounts";
    public CUITe_HtmlEdit txtEmail = new CUITe_HtmlEdit("Id=Email");
    public CUITe_HtmlPassword txtPasswd = new CUITe_HtmlPassword("Id=Passwd");
    public CUITe_HtmlInputButton btnSignIn = new CUITe_HtmlInputButton("Id=signIn");

and calling this controls in codedui test method

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text.RegularExpressions;
using System.Windows.Input;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Drawing;
using Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UITesting;
using Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UnitTesting;
using Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UITest.Extension;
using Keyboard = Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UITesting.Keyboard;
using cuite4._5.Object_Repository;
using CUITe.Controls.HtmlControls;

namespace cuite4._5
/// <summary>
/// Summary description for CodedUITest1
/// </summary>
public class CodedUITest1
    public CodedUITest1()

    public void CodedUITestMethod1()
        BrowserWindow browser = CUITe_BrowserWindow.Launch("");
        PALogin pgPALogin = CUITe_BrowserWindow.GetBrowserWindow<PALogin>();

while execution it is launching the browser and after that failing in finding the controls

Exception message :

Test Name: CodedUITestMethod1
Test Outcome: Failed
Result Message:
Test method cuite4._5.CodedUITest1.CodedUITestMethod1 threw exception:

Came here to ask the same thing. Errors like this have been all over the place since switching to 2013

Also getting the UITestControlNotFoundException on Hyperlinks that have a unique Id. Any ideas?
