If you look in the tab at the bottom of the test log, does it give details about the runtime error?

Re: issue in selecting values from drop down

Hi kavya_v,

 

The error is that you are trying to call the method "Click" in a variable that holds a string. 

 


/I am trying to click on the name ,but this throws runtime error

name.click

'name is just a string at this moment.

Try this:
Eval(name).Click()
Let me know if that helps.
Best regards,

Re: issue in selecting values from drop down

Hi kavya,

 

For selecting values from dropdown list you can use this code ["ClickItem"]("Pass your Value here"); followed by Dropdown object name.

 

for Example:

 

var item= "values at Index1" ;

 

var Dropdown =Sys["Process"]("Sample")["Object"]("HwndSource: MainWindow",0)["ClickItem"](item);

 

Please try this & let me know.

 

Thanks
