Short answer, no
@FindBy is an annotation in Java, and as such happens BEFORE the code is run. So well before you this the webpage,
@FindBy has finalized.
Long answer, no, but you can come close
You can however build xpath (and css) via String variables. They just need to be
final so they can never change.
private final String xModal = "//div[@class='content']/div[@class='modal']";
private final String xModalHeader = "/div[@class='modal-header']";
private final String xModalBody = "/div[@class='modal-body']";
private final String xModalFooter = "/div[@class='modal-footer']";
@FindBy(xpath = xModal + xModalFooter + "/a[@class='btn-cancel']";
private WebElement searchModalCancel;
@FindBy(xpath = xModal + xModalFooter + "/a[@class='btn-submit']";
private WebElement searchModalSubmit;
It's very useful when dealing with a lot of similar elements.
In your case:
String final randomString = "something";
String final startLocator = "//div[@class='cardLabel'][contains(text(), '";
String final endLocator = "')]";
wait.until(ExpectedConditions.elementToBeClickable(By.xpath(startLocator + randomString + endLocator)));
In your example, you actually aren't using
boxes at all. You would need some sort if iteration to loop through each box and wait for it to be clickable.
