IE 11. Element receives click but nothing happens

I need to run my test scripts in IE 11. (I have a lot of problems with IE in general) but I cant seem to figure out this one:

When a button is clicked a new page (with search results) should open. The test-case passes and it appears that the element receives the click but nothing happens. It is stuck on the previous page

Here are some of the methods I have tried:

  • Straight forward
  • WebUI.sendKeys()
  • Click using JS. (Referring to previous posts on this forum, and Katalon documentation)
  • WebUI.mouseOver() before clicking.

None of these seem to do the trick. Other things I have done:
-Followed Katalon guide to run tests in IE.

  • Updated webdrivers

I do not get any errors / exceptions, so I wont be able to show this.

Do anyone have some other suggestions. Anything is appreciated!

Any input on this is appreciated!

@alexander_t Sorry this got missed the first time.

Try WebUI.enhancedClick()

If that doesn’t work, show me the code you used when you tried to use JavaScript. I think I will also need to see the relevant HTML to be sure the correct element is being targeted.

I will give that a try and get back to you

Unfortunately did not WebUI.enhancedClick() work.

When using JavaScript I have done the following:
Defined this custom keyword:

static void jsClick(TestObject to) {

	WebDriver driver = DriverFactory.getWebDriver();
	WebElement elm = WebUiCommonHelper.findWebElement(to, 20)

	JavascriptExecutor jsExecutor = (JavascriptExecutor)driver;
	jsExecutor.executeScript("arguments[0].click();", elm,);

Calling the method in my Test- Case:

The testobject is created using this custom keyword:

	static TestObject showResult (){
		String xpath = "//span[text() = 'Results']"
		TestObject to = new TestObject().addProperty("xpath", ConditionType.EQUALS, xpath)
		return to

I am certain the test object refers to the correct HTML - element

Please don’t make me send the boys round…
