Re: Click on a specific radio button in a table

The index number should be a property as well.

Re: Click on a specific radio button in a table

Couple of minor notes on the code:

 

1) Detecting exists is best if you do the assignment using WaitAliasChild

 

Set updateAddWindow=mypage.WaitAliasChild('panelPnlupdate', 5000)

 

2) If you're actually expecting an array, you should use FindAllChildren instead of FindChild.

 

Now... that all said, if you want to click on a specific radio button, the For loop is not the way to do it, at least not as you have it.  It will click on ALL the radio buttons.

So... what I would do....  I'm not sure how your developers set up your radio buttons but many times the radio button caption will be part of the component itself.  So, I would do just a "FindChild" to look for the radio button but, instead of just looking for ObjectType alone, I'd add a second property in the find to look for the desired caption.

 

 

Dim PropArray, ValueArray
PropArray = Array("ObjectType", "Caption")
ValueArray = Array("RadioButton", "MyCaption")
Set objRadBtn = updateAddWindow.FindChild(PropArray, ValueArray, 20)

This will allow you to find the specific desired radio button.  You can replace those property/value pairs with whatever you need to find the button you're looking for and then click on that button, no for-loop needed.

Re: Click on a specific radio button in a table

Hi,

I've used your method and works fine on a static radiobutton where caption is the same, but my case that caption changes based on user input. but the position stays the same. so i was thinking i could click on the item based on their index, but don't know how to do it, say i want to click the last item, i hope you understand my issue. thanks

Re: Click on a specific radio button in a table

Sure.  As mentioned, instead of the Caption, you can use a different property.  Whatever property you want and that can include the index.  It's just a matter of determining your array of properties and corresponding values of what you want.

Re: Click on a specific radio button in a table

Can you provide a screenshot of the available properties in Object Spy for your radio button?

Re: Click on a specific radio button in a table

Sure, attaching one of the radio button's extended prperties, value changes based on user's input. Index changes as well, everything is dynamic except the objecttype is Radiobutton.

Re: Click on a specific radio button in a table

Hi,

 

> I've a dynamic  table tha have many radiobuttons and i need to click on a specific item. is there a way to click on a item by index number.

 

I haven't seen the overall page markup for the given table, but it is quite a common thing for dynamic pages that do not have unique and stable identifiers for web elements, to apply multi-steps approach to get and use required web element.

As a possible example for your case:

-- Assuming, that for the given table you are not looking for just the radio button, but looking for the radio button that is in the right-most column of some row, and another column of this row contains identifying information (e.g. order number),

-- You may search for this identifying information first;

-- Then, using the knowledge of how the page is designed, you should figure-out / calculate the row;

-- Then, for the found row you should find its right-most column and search for the radio button that is within the found cell. (Note, this well might be not a real cell with <TD> markup, but something, that looks like the cell but has different markup. <DIV>, for example.)
