Please help.. cant figure out variable!

on Tue Jul 05, 2011 4:37 am
Love Selenium IDE.... theres just one thing i cant figure out.... ive been using it to Find and click a reference on a page... it is a clickable button with text that reads "Pay $12,098 to Fix it quick!" im using the "Clickandwait" command....

My line in selenium looks like //input[@value='Pay $12,098 to Fix it quick!']

the problem is... the number is different every time... sometimes it might just be $6,849 or it could be up to $184,212

so what I need is a way for selenium to always click that button.. no matter what the money value is.... can someone please help me!

Hi,

You can use
globs, exact and regular expressions when the data is dynamic.

Code:
glob: Pay $* to Fix it quick!

If this doesn't work use
if fire bugs xpath to link is following
Code:
sel.click("//*[@id='link-icon-unknown-vir_full']")
then you can use to click the same.
Code:
sel.click("//*[contains(@id,'link')]")
If fail to do with this then give example of code where you want to click.

Thanks
