Re: [QF-Test] HMI Version Comparaison

Hello Ahmed,

if getComponent doesn't work your SUT has changes in ways that QF-Test
cannot automatically compensate. Manual chapter 6 explains many of the
issues involved and provides suggestions for how to improve component

This recognition mechanism is already very advanced and over 10 years
of experience have gone into it. I don't have any suggestions for
automated alternatives to use when it fails. If I had, I'd use them to
improve the recognition mechanism itself :-).

Best regards,
