Hi all. I am facing an issue while capturing objects in android device. Can someone help me please


Hi all,

Please use Appium 1.8 in this case. Installation command is:

Do you now whats’s the problem?

Actually scenario just click link on body email mailinator


I’m having a similar issue to Angelo Legaspi where Katalon can’t recognize the same object, “android.widget.EditText1 - Password”. I can’t tap on it, I can’t set text, I can’t even use sendKeys after tapping at the position. What can I do to have the test case properly type out the password so I can get my log in, log out script working correctly?
