extract data from ATTR which is generated

Post by fire77 » Thu Jul 14, 2016 1:17 pm

Hi Guys,
I'm trying to create a macro for creating a page in a web based admin / backend. Couldn't find anything in the forum search.
My stumbling block is copying the id number of the created page, once created it shows the newly generated id number but the field is the code number and not a constant value.

This is the from the recording
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:3658896

The next page I create will be for example.

TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:3658899

Taking into account the information you gave, I can recommend this code

Code: Select all

SEARCH SOURCE=REGEXP:"(<span.*(\d{7}).*<)" EXTRACT=$2
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:{{!EXTRACT}}
