elem.innertext

Post by omayer » Tue Dec 04, 2012 7:51 pm

How to handle when there is no element on /td[3] ,since there is an uncertain delay to get the innertext,
now getting error on- _psld=elem.innertext -- Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
I don't get the error when there is an innertext,

WebElement elem = "/dom[@caption='xxProfile']//div[@id='flashRoot_1']/table[2]/tbody/tr/td[1]/table[1]/tbody/tr[3]/td[1]/table/tbody/tr[10]/td[3]";

_psId = elem.InnerText;

------

here is the full code

public string CopyId()
{

int counter =0;
_psId = " ";
while(_psId ==" ")
{
WebDocument web = "/dom[@caption='xxProfile']";
web.EnsureVisible();
Delay.Ms(20000);
Keyboard.Press("{F5}");
Delay.Ms(20000);

WebElement elem = "/dom[@caption='xxProfile'Profile']//div[@id='flashRoot_1']/table[2]/tbody/tr/td[1]/table[1]/tbody/tr[3]/td[1]/table/tbody/tr[10]/td[3]";

_psId = elem.InnerText.Trim(); //getting Error when there is no innertext-Object reference not set to an instance of an object
counter = counter+1;

if (counter==5)

_psId ="NotFound";
break;
}

}
}
Thank you in Advance

Put a try/catch block in. Catch and deal with the exception if it occurs.
