I would like to use a variable to verify texts. The texts are located with something like:

css=tr:nth-child(35) > td:nth-child(2) 

css=tr:nth-child(36) > td:nth-child(2)

css=tr:nth-child(37) > td:nth-child(2)

I wanted to use something like

store          35            varCounter

verify text    css=tr:nth-child(${varCounter}) > td:nth-child(2)      AAA  
verify text    css=tr:nth-child(${varCounter}+1) > td:nth-child(2)    BBB  
verify text    css=tr:nth-child(${varCounter}+2) > td:nth-child(2)    CCC

The first one does what I want, but I can not get the following ones to work. I am using the latest version of Selenium IDE which does not accept StoreEval.

  • I am not sure but you could try ${varCounter+1} instead of ${varCounter}+1. Dec 11, 2018 at 16:02
  • Thanks for the suggestion. But it does not work.(An invalid or illegal selector was specified)

Solved it :)

Command               Target                Value

store                 10                     x  
execute script        return (++${x})        x
type                  (some field)           ${x}*

You will need something like getEval storeEval , see below:

store       25          x

storeEval   ${x}+1      y

type        name=q      ${y}

type        name=${y}   ${x}    
  • Thanks, but in version 3.4.4 that does not work any more...

  • I didn't know that it is possible to write Selenese test scripts with version 3 and above. probably 'execute script' is the only way.
