How to verify text at specific location.

on Thu Aug 13, 2009 4:15 pm
Hi, Very Happy

Verify test is most important aspect of any testing. But sometimes we have to want verify text at specific location not in whole page. For this use following command:

storeText | Location of your text | variable name

Now you have got the text value at specified location and you will easily comapre both values which you have and one which you get at runtime.

I hope this will help you. best of luck.

I think you are not clicking on the button submit and you are verifying text before it is appearing on the screen.

Just add command click|btnSubmit before verify text.

At that time text is not appearing on the screen. You will have to plcae wait also to handle synchronisation, if any persist. Place verifytext command last after click command.

Hope this will help you.
