Truclient limitation need to know why I cant use different "getelements"

I am new to using Truclient and would like to know why I can not use the javascript method:

document.getElementsByClassName(), document.getElementsByName(), document.getElementsByTagName()


I was able to use document.getElementById() and was able to retrieve the textcontent but would like to also be able to use the other element because not all the html content have IDs.  My goal is to retrieve visible text from a table using the tagname <tr>.  Here is what I would like to put in the javascript evaluate: var table = document.getElementByTagName("tr")[3].textContext.

Re: Truclient limitation need to know why I cant use different "getelements"

Thank you for the feedback!

Which version of TC and browser do you use? These DOM APIs should works well on Evaluate JavaScript Code step. Please try

1. Add a Evaluate JavaScript Code step from toolbox in the Miscellaneous type

2. Set the arguments "Code" by click the Js icon

3. Execute the step.

Let me know if you encounter any futher issues. Thanks

Re: Truclient limitation need to know why I cant use different "getelements"

All these methods, document.getElementsByClassName(), document.getElementsByName(), document.getElementsByTagName(), should work on all TC supported browsers (FF, IE, and Chromium).

I would suggest you split sentence

var table = document.getElementByTagName("tr")[3].textContext;

to three sentences, and add log after each step, to check which step actully has problem.


var trs = document.getElementByTagName("tr");
TC.log(trs, "Standard");
var tr3 = trs[3];
TC.log(tr3, "Standard");
var text = tr3.textContext;
TC.log(text, "Standard");
