Can't replicate Store Text, "...." not defined

Hi guys, me again

Trying to replicate this code, but it does not seem to be working, have tried some variations, but no luck.

Keep getting the error code in red == not defined?

Can you please post the macro source code here?

Hi there, here you go

{
“Name”: “does not work”,
“CreationDate”: “2019-2-7”,
“Commands”: [
{
“Command”: “open”,
“Target”: “https://a9t9.com/”,
“Value”: “”
},
{
“Command”: “storeText”,
“Target”: “//*[@id=“content”]/div[3]/div/h2[1]”,
“Value”: “”
},
{
“Command”: “echo”,
“Target”: “Name var = ${name}”,
“Value”: “”
}
]
}

I have tried store and storeText can’t get either to work

Before storeText, add

store | --- | name

so that the variable name is defined, even if the value does not exist on the page.

Thanks I have tried that and it gives the same result

{
“Name”: “temper – scrape and store from URL”,
“CreationDate”: “2019-2-7”,
“Commands”: [
{
“Command”: “open”,
“Target”: “https://a9t9.com/”,
“Value”: “”
},
{
“Command”: “store”,
“Target”: “—”,
“Value”: “name”
},
{
“Command”: “storeText”,
“Target”: “//*[@id=“content”]/div[3]/div/h2[1]”,
“Value”: “name”
},
{
“Command”: “echo”,
“Target”: “Name var = ${name}”,
“Value”: “”
}
]
}

each command works, but it breaks with

{
  "Command": "echo",
  "Target": "Name var = ${name}",
  "Value": ""
}

It is telling me the name is not defined, but we set that value twice. Also, since I copied this example from the documentation, I would have expected it work since it is as far as I can see the same thing.

Trying to replicate the example from here

https://a9t9.com/kantu/docs/selenium-ide/storetext

Command Target Pattern/Text
open https://a9t9.com/
storeText //*[@id=“content”]/div[2]/div/h2[1] name
echo Name var = ${name}

The locator in the demo code no longer works (page has changed), but after fixing this the demo macro works fine for me.

Output is: [echo] Name var = Visual Web Automation

Code:

{
  "Name": "1var",
  "CreationDate": "2019-2-8",
  "Commands": [
    {
      "Command": "open",
      "Target": "https://a9t9.com/",
      "Value": ""
    },
    {
      "Command": "storeText",
      "Target": "//*[@id=\"content\"]/div[2]/div/div[1]/div[1]",
      "Value": "name"
    },
    {
      "Command": "echo",
      "Target": "Name var = ${name}",
      "Value": "green"
    }
  ]
}

Thanks for trying

I copied that JSON code, created the script and same error as before, the demo locater is not where the error is being reported, as it says “[error] variable “NAME” is not defined” on the echo function - hmm – lol

soon as I run echo it changes to !STAUSOK == false

Very mysterious… can you try the same macro in another Kantu, for example Kantu for Firefox?

tested on my mac – works fine, but that’s another machine, not testing on FireFox :slight_smile:

Hmm, It worked when I copied the JSON – well worked at one point, I am wondering if there is some kind of JavaScript Conflict with another app or something – I turned stuff off, but not luck as yet

I have tried this super simple version too

“{
“Name”: “temper”,
“CreationDate”: “2019-2-12”,
“Commands”: [
{
“Command”: “open”,
“Target”: “https://a9t9.com/”,
“Value”: “”
},
{
“Command”: “store”,
“Target”: “12345”,
“Value”: “myvar”
},
{
“Command”: “echo”,
“Target”: “{myvar}", "Value": "" }, { "Command": "type", "Target": "id=phone", "Value": "{myvar}”
}
]
}”

basically the var here is pre-typed in as 12345 and even here I get [error]variable “MYVAR” is not defined

I can get the code to work on FF using the Kantu site, but it refuses, the same code does not work on the site I am using.

I can see it copies the var fine, I can see it sitting there, but can’t echo it out – any ideas?
