Hey,

Using IE8 (havent tried IE7/9 because our organisation use IE8), create session for a browser tab works only if that was the first opened tab. However, if i open tab #2 and try to get that session with the webbrowser object in bpa is rendering an error in bpa that says it cant find the window.

Does anyone have a solution or a workaround for this problem?

//Andreas

you will have to add some 'browser wait' actions in between the other actions (just a few secs). The pages are probably not loaded.

Hi,

Thanks for the answer, however, it isnt working. Can we set up a remote session to show you?

Adreas,
if you use new windows instead of new tabs, does it work ?

Andreas,

BPA Server will only see the first tab of an open browser. The web browser actions will not work with multiple tabs.

Andreas,
Web browser action seems working (with a few bugs maybe) with BPA9 and IE9.

Andreas,
If you search this forum for "browser" in AM9 and BPA9 sections, you will see them documented.
