Web Selector with dynamic ID

web

#1

Hi, I’m struggling with a web based app where the fields that I need to enter data into seem to have dynamic IDs. During my first few tests, it seemed that only the 3rd digit of the four digit number varied, so I replaced it with a wildcard. As testing continued however, I found the number varied more significantly than I had originally thought. This is what I was using originally:

“webctrl id=‘ember42?9’ tag=‘INPUT’”

But I’ve found out the number varies too much. Using ??? or * does not help as (I think) it is picking up other items on the page and getting confused (technical term!).
Does anyone have any suggestions to get around this?

Many thanks,
John

Try to find out different attribute in the selector using UiExplorer.
