I need to store the values from a list and then need to select a value from the list which matches the value of a variable declared. I'm using cucumber framework and Java I have already found the element from which the values needs to be stored. I'm attaching the HTML tag image. I'm not so acquainted with Java. enter image description here

  • Can you give an example? What would contain a variable and what would you like to take from the list according to that variable value?

    You need to improve your Java skills. Problem has nothing to to do with webdriver, and you would not use webdriver to store values: webdriver is a library which java uses to automate the browser. IOW this is a java question, not a webdriver question. Feb 14, 2018 at 19:08
