Regular Expression

Post by thirukumar » Tue Jun 07, 2016 10:49 am

/form[@title='Equipment Operators']

/form[@title~'^Shift\ Change\ -\ Cat\ MineSt']

My answer for above by using regular expression
1) /form[@title~'*.*']
2) /form[@title~(=|~)'*.*']
3) /form[@title~(=|~)'*.*']
4) /form[@title*]
5) /form[@title*.*]

All failed. Any Suggestion on this how to use regular expression.

Hi,

Matching form with "any" title is not a very good idea (if this is what you are after). You see, this could take a very long time to find all forms and it may return many irrelevant forms!

If your application can have either of both titles, then use OR operator in you xpath, like this:

Code: Select all

/form[@title='Equipment Operators' or @title~'^Shift\ Change\ -\ Cat\ MineSt']
