how to get elements using their id's

Post by arun_volam » Mon Aug 23, 2010 7:26 am


can anyone tell me how to get the web elements and flex objects by their id's.

i don't want to add all the objects to repository because the position of elements in my web page goes on changing from build to build, instead of xpath i would like to get the elements by using their unique id's.

Hi arun_volam,
to identify your elements by id use the 'id' (or additional for flex 'flexuid' ) property in your RxPath.

sample paths:

Use Ranorex Spy and look on the overview tab for attributes you can use to identify an element.

Also see: ... xpath.html
