The code you have here doesn't give enough information to answer this question. What value are you trying to select, and what are the steps you need to take to make the selection? If you are trying to select the text from a dropdown in a popup and make sure it correctly updates the parent page, we need that information to help you. – Kate Paulk Jul 3 '14 at 11:07
Your question is hard to understand. You told us what you want to do but haven't asked any real question. Are you asking us to write a complete test case for you? What does this have to do with robotframework, which you've included as a tag? – Bryan Oakley Aug 9 '14 at 12:26

Please add your HTML code properly so we can look into this. Please go through the below links.

Thanks, but this example is using value. It is to easy for me :) – Bogdan Kostritskyy Jul 3 '14 at 3:32
I'm sorry, Sachin, but this doesn't actually answer the question. It has a comment (request for more info) and just some links. Would you be able to provide a working example? – corsiKa Jul 3 '14 at 20:39
Waiting for inputs from "@BogdanKostritskyy" on kate Paulk comments. He can also use different select options in his code. – Sachin Jul 5 '14 at 3:55
@Bogdan Kostritskyy: Could you please update as per "Kate Paulk" comments :).. – Sachin Jul 5 '14 at 4:11
