Web Testing Finding Text Instead of Object

I can use the Object Spy to find a text label object on a web page, but I have a need to search a page for certain specific text, not as an object.

How can I do this?

Thank you.

Object Spy never generates code that drives WebUI.verifyText(xxx).

Why? The Object Spy traces your mouse action (click, for example) and genrates some code that mimics your action. That’s all it does. Then what action can produce WebUI.verifyText(xxx). — “verify text” is not an action. It is a perception. So that Object Spy can never generate verifyText command.

You need to write a Test Case script that drives WebUI.verifyText(xxx) by your hand.

You are required to graduate from the Object Spy tool.
