XPATH support

Post by radimag » Tue Jul 17, 2018 8:57 am

Hi,

Does Ranorex support translate or matches function in XPATH?
First thought, it seems not. But I prefer to-do a double check.

Documentation of both functions can be found on the official w3 xpath function page. (Can't post urls)

Thanks in advance!

Hi radimag,

While RanoreXPath is based on XPath, it doesn't support all the features and expressions XPath supports at this time (including the translate and matches functions). If are you able to provide more detail to what you are trying to do, I will be happy to look into another method to achieve this.

Cheers,
Ned

Thanks for the answer.

I'm trying to ignore case-sensitive in a xpath.

Example:
Find div tag with attribute name that contains the value 'example' without case-sensitivity

Code: Select all

<div name="This is an ExAmPle name">test</div>
.//div[@name~'example']

Hi,

You can use regular expression, to ignore character case, like this:

Code: Select all

.//div[@name~'(?i:example)']
Hope this helps?
