I am using "CAPTURE" to select a link, the position of this link changes frequently, it depends on the data of the client. How can I select this link that changes position? I attach some pics

Try to capture the two links using Recorder(If AA 360) / Object Cloning (If 11x) and compare the object properties between these two captures.


You will find either the PATH/DOMXPath in the object property is incremented for the same link.


For Eg: if the paths for the two links are 1|2|2|1|2 and 1|2|2|1|3.

You can see the last number is incremented from 2 to 3. This is the exact place where you got to make this as Dynamic by using a counter. Please find the below logic.




nCounterVariable = 1

Loop Starts

#Incrementing the counter to 1 to match the Object property of the link

Increment nCounterVariable to 1

#This condition is to check whether the link is present or not. If not present breaking the loop. This mean we came to the end of the page.

If - Object property does not exists = using the Dynamic Path as 1|2|2|1|nCounterVariable

Break the Loop

# Performing the Capture action with the dynamic Object property

Do recorder/Object Cloning using the Dynamic Path as 1|2|2|1|nCounterVariable

# Add your Code Here

Loop Ends


In this way you can achieve looping through each link in the webpage, no matter how many you have.


Hope this helps!

hi @Dheeraj Nagireddy​ 

if I got this:

PATH: -55|1|2|1|1|1|2|1|1|1|1|1|-1|-2|1

PATH: -54|1|2|1|1|2|2|1|1|1|1|1|-1|-2|1


The code would be like this:


PATH: -5nCounterVariable|1|2|1|1|nCounterVariable|2|1|1|1|1|1|-1|-2|1

PATH: -5nCounterVariable|1|2|1|1|nCounterVariable|2|1|1|1|1|1|-1|-2|1



Yes it is. You should also be aware of the end of the page link when you want to stop the selection, if you use a loop by following the logic which I have posted earlier.
