How to test dynamic ids using Selenium

on Tue Apr 05, 2011 6:23 pm
I am new to Selenium. I was able to test static pages with selenium.
But when it comes to dynamic i am getting stuck.

The scenario in my case is like below..

I have a page where i am creating a new product. Once i enter the
details and click on save, the applications navigates to the product
main page, where it also shows the newly created product id. I want to
select the id coming under the product id #

Dynamic IDs can be tested using various javascript functions available in selenium such as - contains(), substring-before(), substring-after(), substring(), string-length(), normalize-space(), translate()

For ex if the ID starts with the word 'suggest' and after that it varies, then we can use -"//input[starts-with(@id, 'suggest')]")
