Select dropdown listbox by InnerText

Post by vision_na » Wed Apr 10, 2013 9:29 pm

I'm developing a script that includes selecting a item from a drop down list box. I started using the 'SetValue' action along with the TagValue method to select a item from the listbox. But I noticed that my application Tag Value and displayed value are completely different. The only way it works is if I use the 'TagValue' and in the case of the image I added this will require me to enter in '110' as the value instead of 'Corporate Tax Id'. At first I didn't think it was going to be a big deal but we have allot of list controls and the plan is do this with a data driven script, looking up what each Tag Value will take too much time.

See if this helps... You will probably need to change the Text attribute in the code to InnerText... ... -t998.html
