display flickering while taking a test on IE

I took a test on IE, and there are lots of display flickering while I click or mouse over some elements.

Acutally I already ask this one more time before.


However, I think the manager of each category is differenrt so I’m asking to ‘How to’ Category manager again.

This is very important for me to decide whether I use Katalon or not because if I cannot execute a test on IE, I cannot use this for my project.

please check this out again!

Thank you.



You can see the full list of keys here, e.g:

public final static String ENABLE_PERSISTENT_HOVERING = “enablePersistentHover”;

So how about using custom keyword to handle your case? Here is the sample one based on that page above:

import org.openqa.selenium.By
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Mouse
import org.openqa.selenium.internal.Locatable
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions.HasInputDevices
import com.kms.katalon.core.webui.common.WebUiCommonHelper
import com.kms.katalon.core.webui.driver.DriverFactory

def mouseOver(TestObject to)
WebDriver driver = DriverFactory.getWebDriver()
WebElement element = WebUiCommonHelper.findWebElement(to, 30)
Locatable hoverItem = (Locatable) element
Mouse mouse = ((HasInputDevices) driver).getMouse()

It doesn’t work well.

Do you have any other recommendation or advice…?

And can I get a full list of those key that you just told me?

how can I search it? I don’t know their name.

Thank you!

Please try adding this key from IE settings, which would cause the IE driver to rely solely on synthesized JavaScript events:

key: nativeEvents

value: false.

1. This is the page of real site display which is not mouse over yet.

2. This is the page of real site display which shows hidden menu

3. This is a code for mouse over action

4. This is a settings that I was given advice before.

5. This is information about elements that I want to mouse ovr

It still didn’t work well. please take a look at what I wrote here.

Thank you!!!

Can I have a screenshot your settings based on that provided solution from that topic? Is it still not working for you?
