Re: Reading list data in an xpath using TC

Hi,

 

As per https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/dotnet/netframework-4.0/ms256086(v=vs.100), I think that XPath should be something like this:

//*[@id="panelbar"]/li

 

However, as Marsha wrote, unless you are considering cross-platform testing, search methods provided by TestComplete (FindAllChildren(), etc.) are much more preferable.
