this dialog is a helper dialog shown by QF-Test to get control over the native file chooser dialog. You have to record the following steps without interrupts to get a working sequence:

- start recording

- trigger the upload dialog, e.g. click on the input field

- wait for the helper dialog

- press OK

- wait for the native OS file chooser

- navigate to / select the file of interest

- press OK

- stop recording


Recording these steps results in a sequence containing three nodes:

- Mouseclick (InputField)

- Wait for component (UploadDialog)

- Select (File)

Subject: [QF-Test] Internet Explorer - Input File Field




We’re currently experiencing some issues using the File Chooser component on a web page in Internet Explorer (we’re using Internet Explorer 8 and QFS v3.4.6)


Double-clicking in the input file field (or clicking on the ‘browse’ button) brings up a ‘File Upload’ dialog first:


Description: cid:image001.png@?.2E9C4480


QF-Test is recognising this, and gives it a component name of ‘Upload Dialog’, and adds a ‘wait’ for it. 

However, clicking on either the ‘OK’ or the ‘Cancel’ button doesn’t record anything, so on playback, we just get stuck here. 

Even if I tweak it manually so that the file upload dialog itself appears, nothing that I record here is actually recognised, either. 

(Select the record button, do stuff, stop recording, you get a message ‘ not events were recorded’).


Has anyone come across this already or have any suggestions?


Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
