Dynamic search field problem when running automated script in internet explorer

on Fri Mar 20, 2015 5:42 pm
Hello,

I was wondering if anyone could help.

I've created my automated scripts using Selenium IDE, they work perfectly in Firefox and I'm now running them in Internet Explorer using Selenium Webdriver.

Everything is working great apart from I have a problem with a dynamic search field when running in Internet Explorer.

So in Selenium IDE I have:

Code:
<tr>
    <td>sendKeys</td>
    <td>id=MandateId-auto</td>
    <td>Select This Dropdown</td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>pause</td>
    <td>1000</td>
    <td></td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>keyDown</td>
    <td>id=MandateId-auto</td>
    <td>\40</td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>pause</td>
    <td>1000</td>
    <td></td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>keyDown</td>
    <td>id=MandateId-auto</td>
    <td>\13</td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>pause</td>
    <td>1000</td>
    <td></td>
</tr>

In Internet Explorer it sends the keys into the dynamic search field but won't select the drop-down value like it does in Firefox.

I've tried mouse over and click commands but then it won't recognize that the



Code:
<td>id=ui-active-menuitem</td>

exists.



Was wondering if anyone could help?

Thank you in advance.

David

Managed to get this working last week if anyone is having similar problems.

Used the specific xpath. Firefox has a add on called Firepath which helps you get this easily.

Code:
<tr>
    <td>waitForElementPresent</td>
    <td>xpath=/html/body/ul/li/a</td>
    <td></td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>mouseOver</td>
    <td>xpath=/html/body/ul/li/a</td>
    <td></td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>click</td>
    <td>xpath=/html/body/ul/li/a</td>
    <td></td>
</tr>
