Dynamic Drop Down Selection

on Wed May 16, 2012 10:41 pm
I am trying to automate an application that has a drop down that dynamically populates with customer names. The drop down does not actually populate with data until it is selected. When running through the script it thinks it selects something and passes the step, but nothing actually happens. I have tried selecting the index, label, value, storing the name and selecting it, clickAt, mouseDown, keyPress, focus, etc. and nothing seems to work. Any suggestions?

Here's the code:
Code:

<select> index="0" onchange="nc.validate.onChange(this);nc.bizrules.showField(this);" onblur="nc.validate.validateField(this);" onfocus="nc.bizrules.appraisalContactNameOnFocus(this)" validatesect="appraisal" oldvalue="" ctrltype="cbo" isdirty="N" id="cboAIContactName0" name="ctl00$cphMain$ucAppraisal0$cboAIContactName0"
       

</select>
<option value="">--‌·Select‌·--</option>
<option value="-1001">Customer Name</option>
<option value="-1002">Customer Name2</option>
<option value="-1002">Customer Name3</option>
<option value="OTHER">Other</option>
</select>

As drop-down data is uploading after selecting drop-down, you just click on drop-down to expand then put wait then select particular option from drop-down.

Just try this and let me know that you are looking for same solution or not.

I have tried that multiple times with the same results.

selenium.click("id=cboAIContactName0");
selenium.select("id=cboAIContactName0", "label=Other");

Both of these steps pass, but nothing is actually selected. "Other" is always an option in the drop down, but doesn't populate until the names do.

What's weird is I can store what is in the drop down and see all of the options, but Selenium can't seem to select any.

String[] names = selenium.getSelectOptions("id=cboAIContactName0");
System.out.println(names);
//This returns all of the names prior to taking an action on the drop down.

I am talking about below code -

Code:
selenium.click("id=cboAIContactName0");
Thread.sleep(5000);
selenium.select("id=cboAIContactName0", "label=Other");

I tried using pause | 5000, 10000, etc. and just pauses and moves on. When I use clickAndWait, it times out.
