Hi all,

Need some help to insert variable into selector

Instead of Perth, i want to change it to something else in my variable named Input.

How should i do it?

Thank you for your help!

Hi @RPALearner1,

Refer this video

Selector:

"<html app='firefox.exe' title='"+strTitle+"' />"

strTitle -> string variable
strTitle =“THE 10 BEST Restaurants in Perth - TripAdvisor”

  • Asterisk (*) – replaces zero or more characters
  • Question mark (?) – replaces a single character

Regards,
Arivu

@RPALearner1,

Replace Perth with this: ’ “+Cityname.Tostring+” ’

Hi @RPALearner1,

This is a sample for your question.

Original Selector:
“<html app=‘firefox.exe’ title='THE 10 BEST Restaurants in Perth - TripAdvisor />”

Variable:
Input

Expected Selector:
“<html app=‘firefox.exe’ title='THE 10 BEST Restaurants in '” + Input + “’ - TripAdvisor />”

HI @RPALearner1

replace your selector with this…
<html app='firefox.exe' title='The 10 BEST Restaurants in '" + CityName.ToString + "' - TripAdvisor'"/>

Hi there,

Any idea why it didn’t work? Tried to valid it.

Hi

Try pasting this…

"<html app=‘firefox.exe’ title=‘The 10 BEST Restaurants in '" + CityName.ToString + "' - TripAdvisor'/>"

@RPALearner1,

Why you are making a dynamic selector in a selector window, use an assign variable copy the whole selector from selector window and paste in assign and store the value in selector variable and pass selector variable in your activity.

Hi everyone,

You can now define your variables for selectors directly in Studio.
