Updating Object path at Runtime

Post by ankurm.245 » Fri Dec 14, 2018 5:58 am


I am trying to traverse a tree structure which on every expansion of a root node, changes the DOM.
For Ex.
1. I need to click on Root1, then Xpath would be like below (with no child elements visible underneath):

2. I need to click on Root1>Child1, then Xpath would be like (with no child elements visible underneath Child1):

And so on.

I have created a object with just .//Li as path in repository and trying to update it accordingly to match it with the object i need to navigate to at run time.
LiTag Error.jpg

Using Below code to update the path of the element,
LiTag Error 3.jpg
but its throwing error as below:
LiTag Error2.jpg

Any help on how to work on dynamic path or create object at runtime with a specified path and object type?

At first, some screenshots in your post are missing ;) And at next, please upload a Ranorex snapshot, which would be much more helpful than screenshots. Thanks.
