Steps to reproduce

I created a HTML web page which includes two edit boxes : email address and password, and a Login button.
When the Login button is pressed, if any of the two edit boxes is empty, a text “This is a required field” shall be popped up because the edit box has “required” attribute.
I opened the Login web page through Internet Explorer 11, and start Windows 10 SDK inspect.exe tool to search the text “This is a required field” when click the Login button with empty email address or password, the text “This is a required field” can be found by the inspect.exe tool when use IE11.
However, when I used Edge browser to open the Login web page, and click the Login button with empty email address or password, the inspect.exe tool can’t find the text “This is a required field” which is popped up from the Edge browser.
The Login web page html file: index.html, the inpect.exe tool window image files, the Edge browser window image files and the IE11 browser window image files are included in the attached zip file.

  • I could reproduce the problem, though the text is now read as a HelpText of the input field. The pane that actually displays the text is in the Inspect tree but does not mention its text for some reason. This is not a high-priority bug, but it should be investigated nonetheless.

  • Thanks Francois very much for starting investigation of the issue. The issue is critical for my company’s metro style application test automation. We created our automation test based on Microsoft UI Automation and the automation test runs well with IE11 on Windows 8.1 to test our metro style application. Now all the automation test are blocked on Windows 10.

  • Hello Rossen, I appreciate that you take time to investigate the issue. Is there any progress in resolving the issue? Do you need any information about the issue from me? Do we have any workaround solution for this issue?

    The issue is critical for my company’s metro style application functional test automation. Hopefully you can provide UI automation solution on Edge of Windows 10 as IE11 of Windows 8.1.

    Thank you very much!
