1. Get text which are in between tags DOM
<div id="div_ResultMessage" class="AlertmsgDiv">
    <div id="lblSuccessMessage" class="alert alert-success alert-dismissable">
        <div class="fa fa-check-square-o"></div>
            <button type="button" class="close" data-toggle="tooltip" title="Close" data-dismiss="alert" aria-hidden="true">×</button>
            Pur. Requisition No. Acc000056Zip created successfully
            <spam class="DivPrint">
                <a onclick="window.open('/ZipERP/CommonLayout/PrintPurchaseRequisition?id=769e9c10-7a5f-4205-920e-6f967f18811e')" href="#" class="fa fa-print" data-toggle="tooltip" title="Print">  

I want to get this text if you can see it in DOM Pur. Requisition No. Acc000056Zip created successfully

I have tried fetching the text and store it in a var

var str = "";
 str = element(by.id('#lblSuccessMessage')).getAttribute('value');

and also this:

var str = "";
str = element(by.id('#lblSuccessMessage')).getText().then(function(text){
return text;

Actually I am making a purchase requistion and there is alert which generates the Purchase requistition no but it contains Pr. no but surrounded with texts for that I am applying regEx and it says str.match() is not a function.

For regEx I have tried this

prno = str.match(/ Pur. Requisition No. Acc(\d+)/i)[0];

    Can you elaborate more on your question? What are results of your trial? What is the concrete issue? To get a text or to parse it with regexp? – Alexey R. Dec 14 '18 at 9:37
  • @AlexeyR. i have attached the DOM and mentioned what i want – Rao Dec 14 '18 at 9:44

Okay I got solution for this:

var str = $('#lblSuccessMessage').getText().then(function(text){
        var r = /\d+/;
        prno = text.match(r)[0];
        //prno = str.match(/ Pur. Requisition No. Acc(\d+)/i)[0];
      //console.log("Purchase requistion no..."+prno);
