An objects-hierarchy discrepancy between the object-spy and recording

An objects-hierarchy discrepancy between the object-spy and recording

An objects-hierarchy discrepancy between the object-spy and recording

Hi all,
There is a discrepancy between the object-spy and the recorded script regarding the objects hierarchy of the same test object.
It can be seen in applications like web applications and .Net applications, that the Object-spy's objects-hierarchy of a test object is not the same as the corresponding one of the recorded line as shown in the script.
The Object-spy's hierarchy is generally much deeper in comparison to the recorded script's line regarding the same test object in the application, how come?


RE: An objects-hierarchy discrepancy between the object-spy and recording

The object in the recorded script uses whatever heirarchy was assigned to it.  For example a dialog under my application's main screen has an OK and a Cancel button.  But if I place the objects directly under the application's main screen in the repository then that's what the script uses.

But the Object Spy still shows the complete chain of objects from the top level right down...
