Hi! I have a click activity whose selector contains an embedded variable. The format for the selector is:
“<webctrl aaname=’” + myStringVariable + “’ tag=‘INPUT’ />”
where the value of myStringVariable is not known in advance. I have noticed that the selector can break depending on the characters in myStringVariable. For example, if myStringVariable = “AD&D”, the selector breaks due to “&” being a reserved character.
Is there somewhere I can see a list of all reserved characters for selectors and their respective escape sequences? Also, is the following assign activity the best way to circumvent this problem?
myStringVariable = myStringVariable.Replace(reservedCharacter, escapeSequence)
myStringVariable = myStringVariable.Replace("&", “&”)?
Thanks in advance!
