I’m using same xpath for getText it’s work but while sending Text it won’t work.

You might expect getText and setText APIs to be mirror images of each – unfortunately that’s not true. The APIs are poorly named.

getText() retrieves the innerText of any DOM element.

Example: <div>Retrieve this stuff</div>

setText() sets the value property of a DOM element that supports the value attribute and property

Example: <input value="Set this stuff" ... >.

As you can see, they are very different things.


the template you used to create this topic is just a template.
it is supposed to give hints to the users how to add relevant info into a new topic and edit it accordingly.

however, you have no time for this, right?

so, why do you think comunity users should have time to scratch their heads to figure out what is your actual issue?
