I have a table with three columns and numerous rows. The first column contains dates that are hyperlinks.

Is there a way to:
A) click the first cell in a table regardless of the date that is displayed 
and then
B) use the date that was just clicked to dynamically verify that the page displayed contains that date (the page displayed is a report for that date).

So you click on May 27 in the cell, and the next page displays "Daily Schedule for Tuesday, May 27th, 2014" But I don't care that it's specifically May 27...just want the first cell and then to match the two dynamically.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Julie,

Please see this video for a demonstration.

I have modified the find expression to click on the first cell and extract the value into variable.

Let me know if this helps.

What is the first think you are clicking on? Are you right clicking on the "Navigate to..." step?

Okay, that was supposed to be "thing," not "think." And is there supposed to be audio with the video? I do not have any audio.

Hi Julie,
The best way I've found to do something like this requires you to add that cell to your project elements and make its find logic as generic as possible to ensure no matter what the TextContent is, it will always refer to the first cell in the table. Once you have the cell properly mapped you can use the cell contents to create an anchor you can click on:

​HtmlAnchor anch = null;
anch = (~~YOUR ELEMENT~~).ChildNodes[0].As<HtmlAnchor>();
anch.ScrollToVisible(ArtOfTest.WebAii.Core.ScrollToVisibleType.ElementTopAtWindowTop);
anch.MouseClick(ArtOfTest.WebAii.Core.MouseClickType.LeftClick, 0, 0, ArtOfTest.Common.OffsetReference.AbsoluteCenter);

Note that in this example I am assuming the actual anchor in the DOM is the first child element of the cell where the tags in the DOM follow this structure: tr->td->a (row->cell->anchor)

Hope this helps.

Hello Julie,

Yes, I am clicking on Navigate step to load the page.

Then I make the find expression as generic as possible.

@Miguel, thank you for you input. We really appreciate it.

Thank you!
