Storing and Printing Post Element

Post by cyssor on Fri Jun 15, 2012 3:10 am

Hello
I'm new to Selenium so please be easy on me Smile. I am trying to write a test that takes the Xpath of the first news article on my website (the articles are dynamic), stores the text and then display it. I want to write this as a suite so that I can display the current Article per page to ensure the most recent articles are being posted correctly.

(Some of the variables have been replaced for website confidentiality)
I've tried using

open | /targetURL
storeTextPresent | id('entries')/x:div[1]/x:div/x:div[1]/x:div[2]/x:h3/x:a | currentPost
echo | the current post is ${currentPost}


any suggestions would be appreciated.

Well it seems as if I've figured it out. If anyone else was interested the fix was using a different target instead of Xpath's.

it looks like this now:

open | /targetURL
storeText | css=h3 > a | currentPost
echo | the current post title is ${currentPost} | "Title of Article Displayed"
