Attached is the screen and the whole list is considered as 1 text file. so ima not able to select a randon string value.

Then I'm not sure why converting the list string to an integer would do you any good at all.

 

What will the test do once it has a list item to work with?  Perhaps there's a another way to move forward.

Well, first of all

 

1) You can't convert ANY of that to an integer if each line in the file is one of the elements.  It's not an integer value so you will ALWAYS get an error

2) If you want to use each row as a particular item, probably what would be better would be to download the contents to something like a CSV file or read the text in as a text string with delimiters on the carriage return.  You can the work with it using the aqString object and the methods for delimited strings.

Re: how to select the random list from lslist table. it is string values

Hi,

 

If I got the problem and the screenshot right, then you seem to have a property (FullTExt) that is a text splitted to several lines. So why not to count the number of lines, get a random number in the [1...NofLines] range and select the line by that number?

Does this help?

Hi,

 

> curobject.highlight.fulltext.Linescount

Is .linescount a property that you see in the Object Browser/Object Spy for the target object?

 

I would recommend to try something like this:

aqString.GetListLength(<object>.FullText)

See documentation for more details about this and other methods of the aqString object.
