Version 6.4.3

Squish 6.4.3 is a maintenance release containing bug fixes for all editions of the product. See the following sections for a detailed list of all changes.


  • Removed unneeded reverse name lookup when attaching to an AUT by IP address. This avoids a 30 second delay when attaching to applications if the reverse name lookup runs into a timeout.

Squish IDE-specific

  • Resolved spurious warnings when editing BDD test cases claiming that no matching step definition can be found.
  • Disable the Record Snippet action in case the AUT exits during stepping through a test script or stopping at a breakpoint


  • Added binary packages for Qt 5.12 on desktop platforms (macOS, Linux, Windows).
  • Improved error handling and error messages for type(objectOrName, text) on Qt objects.
  • Extended IgnoreWindowFocusFailure qtwrapper.ini setting to apply to QWidget controls. This allows type(objectOrName, text) replay on unfocused widgets.
  • Restored support for calling the qtTrId() function from test scripts on Qt 5 applications.
  • Fixed incorrect exposure of QML-internal methods on types, resulting in uncallable overloads like QQuickItem::mapToItem(undefined *).


  • Improved reliability of hooking into Firefox and Chrome.
  • Fixed a problem with detecting the right firefox executable on some Linux systems.
  • Reduced overhead of unused extensions on recording and replay performance.

Windows (native)-specific

  • Made the text property of combo box controls accessed via the Microsoft UI Automation framework expose the selected text (if any), as expected.
  • Fixed cases in which Squish would attempt to (and fail at) scrolling Windows list view items into view before clicking them.
  • Fixed regression which prevented loading of the UI Automation extension.

macOS-specific (Cocoa/Carbon edition)

  • Fixed picking of NSButton instances on macOS 10.14 (Mojave).
