Is this issue resolved or are you still facing error?

Hi Team,

I am facing the above mentioned errors when we running the test case in android devices.

We were unable to set the value using ‘setText()’ function.

Can you please help us.



The issue is fixed, make sure you have picked the correct element, i.e the input field in this case where you want to set the text. It will work if you are selecting the correct element using XPath.

Hi Team,

What we are trying to do is:

  • Record a script in chrome by resizing the browser to mobile dimensions
  • Then run the script in android mobile and observe the automation result

While we are trying to run the recorded script in android mobile, we are not able to identify ‘setText()’ function even though we have picked the current element and given xpath and various other locators and we are getting the error message mentioned in this forum message.

Please let us know if there are any workarounds for this issue. It’s an urgent requirement.
Thanks in advance.
