Getting different XPath locators from Appium inspector for same element on Android real device and Emulators


#1

In case of hybrid application I am getting different XPath locators for same element on Android [Genimotion] emulator and real device.
There are no other common properties/values for element to select for real device and emulator.
Sometime for some element on Android appium inspector gives values for properties like ‘content-desc’ and ‘resource-id’ but for blank for simulator or vise-versa.

Getting values for resource-id from Uiautomator is relatively new in Android. Double check which versions of Android you’re running on your emulator and your physical devices.
