hi,

you get the text with the help of following command:

storeValue ( locator, variableName )

Gets the (whitespace-trimmed) value of an input field (or anything else with a value parameter). For checkbox/radio elements, the value will be "on" or "off" depending on whether the element is checked or not.

Arguments:

* locator - an element locator
* variableName - the name of a variable in which the result is to be stored.

Returns:
the element value, or "on/off" for checkbox/radio elements


For Example:

String textOfDisableField = getvalue("id/xpath of the object");

Best of Luck
