XPATH and target/value help Empty XPATH and target/value help

on Mon Jul 02, 2012 11:20 pm
Hi all,

I have a drop down list, that contains values, on the end of each value is a count, which changes constantly. I'm trying to select a value in the dropdown, but match on say the first 5 characters (so that I can get around the value changing). Can this be done? I've attached a snippet of the source code below

<div class="formRowFullWidthDiv">
<select id="QualificationId" class="textBoxMinLarge input-validation-error" name="QualificationId" data-val-required="The QualificationId field is required." data-val-range-min="1" data-val-range-max="2147483647" data-val-range="Qualification must be selected" data-val-number="The field QualificationId must be a number." data-val="true">
<option value="0" selected="selected">Please Select...</option>
<option value="625">Complete ECDL Essentials and Extra Learning and Testing Solution for Schools (0)</option>
<option value="620">Complete ECDL Learning and Testing Solution (0)</option>
<option value="619">Complete ECDL Essentials Learning and Testing Solution (6)</option>

If I wanted to select option 619 based on the name, but only a portion of it, i.e. "Complete ECDL Essentials Learning and Testing"
how could this be done....

In IDE i have "SELECT" in my command column, "QualificationId" in my target column, and am struggling on the VALUE column..

could someone help?

Many thanks in advance,

With the help of regular expression you can write your code.
Below is for option 619
select  |  id=QualificationId  | label=regexp:.*Complete ECDL Essentials Learning and Testing Solution.*
