Hope i can get an answer to my question, a real showstopper.
How can I click an element that is not visible?
I checked on the webdriver support pages for insight.
The Webdriver people seem to say you have to make it visible but is that really true?
Sorry to be vague in our response, but the correct answer is "it depends."
But the main question is whether eValid has access to a DOM element in spite of the fact that it is not currently visibleon the face of the browser, and the answer to that is YES.
For passive elements, that is, those that are simpley "there" on the page, even if the attribute setting is "invisible" you can certainly do it. All that you need is is the index of the DOM element. Here are the commands that manipulate DOM values, which do NOT have any limitations about visibility: http://www.e-valid.com//Products/Docume ... ation.html
It may be useful in addition (with tongue in cheek) to point that it is NOT possible for eValid to insert values in a DOM element that does not exist. Yet, eValid can cause an element to be created and THEN insert values into it...
