selenium.type("id","value"); does not work

on Sat Mar 10, 2012 2:51 am
Here is my sample code:"/test.php");





When I execute this script, I get the name field populated with but description field is skipped and OK button is clicked. Since both name and description both are text field and are mandatory field on clicking OK button the task is not completed as the description textbox is empty.

to debug I entered another line of code before selenium.type("description","TestDescription"); as


and on execution I got the value as true.

Selenium server is giving Result as OK for all the lines above but still the field is not getting populated by data

So, I added one more line


for which I get the following error:

Exception in thread "main" com.thoughtworks.selenium.SeleniumException: ERROR: E
lement description is not an input.
at com.thoughtworks.selenium.HttpCommandProcessor.throwAssertionFailureE
at com.thoughtworks.selenium.HttpCommandProcessor.doCommand(HttpCommandP
at com.thoughtworks.selenium.HttpCommandProcessor.getString(HttpCommandP
at com.thoughtworks.selenium.HttpCommandProcessor.getBoolean(HttpCommand
at com.thoughtworks.selenium.DefaultSelenium.isEditable(DefaultSelenium.

I verified the .php file and that code never mentions of uneditable or so...

Can anyone help me how to work around this??

I too am not seeing this with IDE, only with RC. I mean it works perfectly fine in selenium IDE but not in RC
