Hi,

I am trying to set some test in a text box on a gridview, the textbox will be different on each test so i need to set the element name on each text,
int no = Row.RowIndex;
string textbox = "Pages.ERecruitment7.ContentPlaceHolder1GvLookupTxtengagementStatus"+no.ToString()+"Text";
 Log.WriteLine(textbox);
 Actions.SetText(textbox, "AAA_Test Studio_BBB");

This is what i have so far (simplified), i am assumed i could set the string and then replace the target element, but i says it cannot be a string, is there a way i can do this? create a new target element?

Thanks

Hi Joseph,

Unfortunately you can't switch the name of the element with a string in the Action.SetText() arguments. 

The best way to handle this testing scenario is to locate the required element (textbox) with code and that way you won't need the elements from the Elements Explorer.
You can read in our documentation how you can find the element with code.

I will be happy to assist you,  if you need additional help.
