Thanks Nilau.

unable to find the element on the page because it take some 30-40 sec to load the data after clicking on the Search button. For that I have written the code as below.

String ExpectedValue = ‘07012019’

WebDriver driver = DriverFactory.getWebDriver()

‘To locate table’

WebElement Table = driver.findElement(By.xpath(’//table[@id=tableENF123Submissions]/tbody/tr/td/a’))
WebUI.waitForElementPresent(ExpectedValue, 30)
'To locate rows of table it will Capture all the rows available in the table ’

List Rows = Table.findElements(By.tagName(‘tr’))

println('No. of rows: ’ + Rows.size())

‘Find a matching text in a table and performing action’

‘Loop will execute for all the rows of the table’

table: for (int i = 0; i < Rows.size(); i++) {

‘To locate columns(cells) of that specific row’

List Cols = Rows.get(i).findElements(By.tagName(‘td’))

for (int j = 0; j < Cols.size(); j++) {

‘Verifying the expected text in the each cell’

if (Cols.get(j).getText().equalsIgnoreCase(ExpectedValue)) {

‘To locate anchor in the expected value matched row to perform action’


table: break

Thanks Helen for your response. It is fixed after giving the webui.delay and after making some changes in the for loop.

please help me to create a class for reading the data from the excel sheet and create a for loop like for(int i=1; I<=exceldata.getRowNumbers(); i++).



If you can’t code a loop, don’t use it.
Use Data Driven on Test Suite, Katalon will do the loop for you

thanks Helene…and working as expected now :slight_smile:

Hi Can you please share your successful code i am having the same test case.?

for (int rowNum = 1; rowNum <= findTestData(‘LocationNameID’).getRowNumbers(); rowNum++) {
WebUI.setText(findTestObject(‘Form Search/input_Location ID or Name_LocIdSearchString’), findTestData(‘LocationNameID’).getValue(1, rowNum))'Form Search/button_Search'))


//String ExpectedValue = '34816-01'

String ExpectedValue = findTestData('LocationNameID').getValue(2, rowNum)

WebDriver driver = DriverFactory.getWebDriver()


WebElement Table = driver.findElement(By.xpath('//table[@id=\'tableLocations\']/tbody'))

List<WebElement> links = Table.findElements(By.xpath('//tr/td'))

for (int j = 0; j < links.size(); j++) {
    'Verifying the expected text in the each cell'
    if (links.get(j).getText().equalsIgnoreCase(ExpectedValue)) {
        'To locate anchor in the expected value matched row to perform action'


        WebUI.verifyElementPresent(findTestObject('Form Search/h2_Filing History'), 0)
