Use of the Web Element Action


#1

I need to locate and enter text into a browser input field that contains different default values every time. Web Element looks like the best solution (the page is very busy so tabbing through would take ages). But it appears one can’t use this action except as a child to the Open Website action. Is this correct? If so, it makes the facility all but unusable as I can’t open a new Website halfway through a script! Is there any way of inserting a Web Element action on its own into a script?

Hi, @alan, i’m sorry, but it can be used inside Open Website only.

You can try to replace action, which opens your browser to “Open website”, then go on with your script.
If you use “Switch window” and work with different window during the script, simply add “Switch to browser” before “Web Element”
