Hello!

You have to pass the entire selector through a variable (String) and modify what you need on that variable.

To be clear, I’m attaching a Example of how do that.

Any doubts, please let me know.

Regards,

SelectorVariable_Example.xaml (7.3 KB)

PS - On the example I’m typing “Hello World” in a Notepad.

Thanks, but it does not find the element.

I have added a check to see if such an element exist and it fails everytime (while using ‘i’).
The same thing if I try to replace with exact number, the script runs successfully and the check return true.

check the selecters try to debug or use UIexplorer.

Ok, will try that…

in the above given seletor Can someone help us how to increment the table row using the variable.

Even I am facing the same issue, though I enter the variable name in quotes as ’ “+day” ’ it gets converted to webctrl aaname=’& quot;+day& quot;’ after I run my workflow.

How to escape double quotes(") in the selector? Or am I missing something else?

Please help

Hi @Shiny,
use like this
<webctrl aaname='"+day.ToString()+"' />

Hi, Lucas.

I apply the same logic of your example to my case and I get this error

My selector is this

“<webctrl tableCol=‘8’ tableRow=” & pRowCounter.ToString & “tag=‘INPUT’ />”

If someone can help, please.

Thanks

Hi @aedsferrao,

use this one
"<webctrl tableCol='8' tableRow='"+pRowCounter.ToString+"' tag='INPUT' />"

Thanks I forgot to put apostrophes in tableRow.

Works fine now :smiley:

Hi,

I already used ’ “+day.ToString” ’ but it just didn’t work out. I use google calender so i don’t know this fail just appear on gg calender or not.

Thanks
