I'm having trouble with some eValid structural commands.
When I look for a string like this auth* I don't get a match.
Thanks for asking PaulMa.
If you use the phrase "auth*" you probably are thinking that eValid will automatically assume that is a regular expression, that is, will match on any string the begins with "auth"...
But no, sorry, eValid will treat "auth*" as the string to be matched...not as a regular expression. Probably that's why you don't get any matches.
The IndexFindElement command will do exact match on the left hand side of a string only. That is, to get a match to a specified string only the first part has to match.
Here is the manual page for IndexFindElement: http://www.e-Valid.com/Products/Documen ... ement.html
If you DO want to match on any content that starts with auth
-- which you might write as an regular expression as "auth*"
-- then you have to use the IndexFindElementEX command, which DOES take RE's.
Here is a command that lets eValid find the sourceIndex of an object on a page using a search process based on Regular Expressions: http://www.e-Valid.com/Products/Documen ... nt.ex.html
