Element has no name

Type

Error

Description

An element does not have a name. For example, the element does not have accName implemented and an empty string is returned when the get_accName method is used to retrieve the MSAA name of the element.

This issue causes problems for people who rely on a screen-reader and keyboard for navigation because an element might be incorrectly identified to the user.

Possible causes

  • The element or its parent has no name or label.
  • The element is assigned an accRole that suggests the element have a name.
  • The element that has focus should not receive focus. For example, a label or a disabled control.
  • An invisible control has received focus.
