I tried to print the array elements in the text box the command is as follows

enter image description here

while sending the values of vehicles to iterator so that I can further enter the values as ${KEY_ENTER}with the array elements it does not pass the value of the vehicle to the iterator.

Is there an alternate way where I can send the array values so that I can target css=.XTCLo to that array elements.

I even tried by executing

type | css=.XTCL0| ${iterator} 

But it just enters ${iterator} instead rather than value by doing so.

So tried using send keys command but it didn't work can someone help me with this?


Running '1st (1)'
1.open on / OK
2.executeScript on ["car","bus"] with value vehicles OK
3.forEach on vehicles with value iterator OK
4.store on myitems with value myvar OK
5.click on css=.Fifk5 .\_6q-tv OK
6.Trying to find vehicles... Failed:
Implicit Wait timed out after 30000ms
Warning implicit locators are deprecated, please change the locator to id=vehicles

I think using id=vehicles as per suggestion is meaningless here as per suggestion. I even tried by entering send keys | css=.XTCL0|${iterator} But it just enters ${iterator} instead rather than value as previous type case

You are not returning the array

enter image description here

you have add target as return ["car","bus"] instead of ["car","bus"]

and use for each ${vehicles} iterator

In selenium, we use name in the value field (to store something to the variable) and ${name} in target while targeting (when need to access the stored variable)

Now you will have car and bus respectively for each iteration.

Second issue:


send-keys expect locator in target and what to send to that locator as value.


send keys vehicles ${iterator} is the wrong syntax, I am not sure what you are truing to do.

  • Initially I did send key | css=.XTCLo | ${iterator} To enter the value of array to CSS class

  • If I echo the array element it works but If I want to enter the array element to textbox it doesn't

I executed script | return ["car", "bus"] | vehicles, then replaced send keys | vehicles | ${iterator} with send keys | css=.XTCL0| ${iterator} this solved the issue.
