Selenium IDE unable to identifydynamic ID of web element

on Tue May 24, 2011 5:00 pm
Hi everyone,
I am new to this forum but found it quite helpful.I have an issue regarding Selenium IDE. I am testing a web page which has some web elements with dynamic changing properties. I was trying to click on that particular element but it says element not found. I have tried everything xpath, css , html firebug,regular expression everything but still it is giving error. I want to know when we run the script every time the web page refreshes and generates a new id for that particular element. Is there anyway that Selenium IDE can identify the target with dynamic changing properties. Even I tried record and play but once you record and playback the same script it gives an error.Please help me solve this issue. Thanks in advance.
Xpath:/html/body/table[2]/tbody/tr[1]/td[2]/center/div/table/tbody/tr[@id='null_slv_r']/td[@id='null_slv_c']/table/tbody/tr/td/form/table/tbody/tr[6]/td[2]/span[@id='span_picker7224']/a[@id='a_picker7224']/img
(Evey time the above id is changing whenever the page gets refreshed.)

in xpath,you can use 'contains()' to locate the dynamic element.
for instance,//span[container(@id,'span')]
