I am trying to use Selenium in one of my scripts to select more then one menu item at a time before clicking the run button. That part is working, but I want to pull the xpath from the object repository so that if it needs to change I don’t need to update the script. The problem is, I am getting a null. I should be able to include information here. Please let me know if the answer is apparent to anyone here thanks! See below.
I have been entering the xpath under Selection Method - XPath but just in case it needed to be an attribute I also added it as an attribute. In both locations the xpath = //*[contains(@id, ‘Load Supplier Master Data’)] and within WebUI it works just fine.
Forum post where I initially found what the solution should be -
Code (The commented out line works fine with the xpath hard coded) -
WebDriver driver = DriverFactory.getWebDriver()
Actions actions = new Actions(DriverFactory.getWebDriver())
Updating this, found another thread on the forum. Link below. The answer appears to be that I need to use expression language which I don’t have a lot of experience with but it seems to be working now.
Updated code -
WebDriver driver = DriverFactory.getWebDriver();
Actions actions = new Actions(DriverFactory.getWebDriver());
TestObject eLoadSupplierMasterData = findTestObject(‘Object Repository/Engine Execution Log/Engine Execution Request - Processes To Execute/Processes to Execute - Load Supplier Master Data’);
