Test code throws WidgetNotFoundException

Postby keico » Thu Mar 03, 2011 3:07 pm


My test code throws a WidgetNotFoundException at runtime. Below is the stack trace I received:

com.windowtester.runtime.WidgetNotFoundException: Component not found WidgetLocator(javax.swing.JTable):

I believe the cause of the exception is because the JTable variable in the main class was instantiated to an object with type of anonymous and subclass of the javax.swing.JTable class. Please refer to the modified SimpleTableDemo.java line 77 for details.

Does anyone know the fix for this issue? Your help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you.

Hmm.. this is indeed as you said. The JTable is being created as an anonymous class, which is why WT is unable to find it. Unfortunately I don't know how we would overcome this, since in order to find a table, WT does look for the JTable or children of its class. If you do a CTRL+SHFT+F1 when the Swing application has focus, you will see a print of the hierarchy tree in the console for verification.
