UFT 14.51: Wildcard is not working any longer

Hello UFT fellows,

I have a question about wildcards in descriptive programming in UFT. In older UFT Version the wildcard .* worked fine. In UFT 14.51 it is no longer working.

Please have a look at the coding for a SAPGui Information PopUp Window:

strxxx = "Help"			 'does not work in UFT 14.51, but worked in older UFT versions
'strxxx = "Help   (F1)" 	'works in UFT 14.51

If SAPGuiSession("guicomponenttype:=12").SAPGuiWindow("guicomponenttype:=22").SAPGuiButton("guicomponenttype:=40","tooltip:="& strxxx & " .*").Exist Then
	msgbox "exists"
Else
	msgbox "does not exist"
End If

 

Do you have the same experience?

Is there another option to use a wildcare in a string?

Is it a bug in UFT 14.51?

Many thanks in advance!

Hello,

is it possible to get this hotfix for wildcard in UFT14.51 because we also use descriptive programming with wildcard ".*"

Thx hagba20
