Set Text in Cell on Table

can you help me to set text in cell on table?
I’ve use this code, but only click without setText.
I’ve try to use method setText, but not available.


Hello Zepri,
did you try to use snedKeys()?
also there is possibility to use javascript to set text in any html object.
please take look at this discussion

I’ve see this code.
in this link, have object.
but in my case, I don’t have specific object, because I only get object table, and identify cell using looping.

driver.executeScript("arguments[0].innerHTML = arguments[1]", Columns_rowEmployeAddSalaryComponent.get(6), '100');

Thank you Andrej, but this is doesn’t work|

This is message error.

Possible solutions: findWebElement(com.kms.katalon.core.testobject.TestObject, int), findWebElements(com.kms.katalon.core.testobject.TestObject, int)

Maybe you can help me if you see this html for cell object

Maybe you can help me if you see this html for cell object


that error is because you are trying to use selnium WebElement instad of Katalon

in script you posted in 1st post use


instead of Columns_rowEmployeAddSalaryComponent.get(6).sendKeys(1)

*** Element info: {Using=xpath, value=//input}

I’ve use this code.

if (celltext == employeeCode2) {




can you please post more HTML - i need to see point that is addressed by
Columns_rowEmployeAddSalaryComponent.get(6) to see how to get to that input field you want to fill.



this code set text in other edit text.
so sad…
I’m sorry, because always bother you.
You have other way??

sorry, i dont understand … can you be more descriptive?

this code set text in other edit text.

what do you mean by that?

I’ve use this code.




and after run, this code sendKeys in other field, outside the table.


question: following code
address what component? is it field that needs to be filled? or is it part of table and we need to traverse DOM to get to field we need fill?

basicly, this field not part of table.
but I don’t know, why this code sendKeys to this field.
maybe this code read xpath normally, don’t add xpath object Columns_rowEmployeAddSalaryComponent.get(6)

this is HTML for field name salary component.
xpath maybe like object cell on the table


what this


will do is - find first input element of class dx-texteditor-container and send key to it. it looks like first element of that kind is field for Name, next one is salary - field you actually want update.
to check that please try use following:
