Joomla select from drop down using a variable from an array

I have an array

String[] testArray = [‘Activities 1’, ‘19’, ‘15’,"’,'Object Repository/Page_Editing the Activity/a_Friday", ‘Activities 2’, ‘10’, ‘0’,‘Object Repository/Page_Editing the Activity/a_Sunday’]

I want to use this to select options in a drop down box (it has the days of the week)

I tried:

TestObject to = findTestObject(‘Object Repository/Page_Editing the Activity/a_Friday’)

but this can’t find and click the object when I do this

WebUI.click(to)

what I’d hoped to do was create a series of variable mo, tues, wed etc and put them in the array:

String[] testArray = [‘Activities 1’, ‘19’, ‘15’,mon, ‘Activities 2’, ‘10’, ‘0’,wed]

then do

WebUI.click)testArray(3) etc

Can’t get it to work at all. It throws

[FAILED] - Test Cases/Activities/Create activities data set up FAILED because (of) (Stack trace: com.kms.katalon.core.exception.StepFailedException: Unable to click on object ‘Object Repository/Page_Editing the Activity/a_Friday’ (Root cause: com.kms.katalon.core.webui.exception.WebElementNotFoundException: Web element with id: ‘Object Repository/Page_Editing the Activity/a_Friday’ located by ‘By.xpath: //a[(text() = ‘Friday’ or . = ‘Friday’)]’ not found)

Help :frowning:

Alan,

I tried:
TestObject to = findTestObject(‘Object Repository/Page_Editing the Activity/a_Friday’)
but this can’t find and click the object

In order to fix this, we need to see 2 things.

First, the definition of ‘Object Repository/Page_Editing the Activity/a_Friday’. Could you take a screenshot and attache it here?

Second, we need to see the underlying HTML code of the “drop down box (it has the days of the week)” and its ancestor nodes.
