Check for button's presence and Escaping *

Post by MattBell7 » Mon Jun 14, 2010 10:46 am

2 questions for the price of one, bargain!!!

1. Is there anyway to check for a buttons presence on a page without actually clicking on it? (this applies to links as well)

2. Is there anyway to check for a * on a page, rather than it always acting as a wildcard.


Code Samples:

Code: Select all

'check for cancel button
'check for link
TAG POS=1 TYPE=A ATTR=TXT:View<SP>limitations

Code: Select all

'check for mandatory text
TAG POS=1 TYPE=P ATTR=TXT:Required<SP>fields<SP>are<SP>marked<SP>by<SP>*
'check for field
TAG POS=1 TYPE=LABEL ATTR=TXT:required<SP>*<SP>First<SP>Name:
