Getting the error [error] Cannot read property 'find' of undefined on using else if

I’m trying to use else if with a different value everytime of a variable but getting the error Cannot read property ‘find’ of undefined.

Could you please help on this.

“Command”: “verifyElementPresent”,

Hi @admin could you please help on this ? Thank you so much

It seems the $ is missing in front of every variable?

Instead of

if | {name}.includes (“diksha”) == true

use

if | ${name}.includes (“diksha”) == true

This works:

{
  "Name": "1",
  "CreationDate": "2019-9-26",
  "Commands": [
    {
      "Command": "store",
      "Target": "abc",
      "Value": "name"
    },
    {
      "Command": "if_v2",
      "Target": "${name}.includes(\"abc\") == true",
      "Value": ""
    },
    {
      "Command": "echo",
      "Target": "yes",
      "Value": ""
    },
    {
      "Command": "end",
      "Target": "",
      "Value": ""
    }
  ]
}

Hi @ulrich I’m using “else if”
I re tired by using $ symbol and it still throws the same error

@admin I agree with @DikshaBaluja. After 1h of trying to use almost the same code like him I googled the error and I found this thread. I’ve also tried to use multiple elseif inside a while loop and I get that error.

Have you tried instead of putting an elseif statement in, just putting an if statement in their instead?

I got the same error in a script that used to work. Then I added a valid if_v2 early in the script and a later elseif throws the error.

@admin please comment on this error! Any insights?

I got the same error with you.
My solution is using another if…end instead of elseif.

I’m getting the same error when I have too many if/elseif/end conditions.

Scenario:

  1. Nested IF (IF inside and IF inside and IF) and the later ELSE IF fails
  2. I have an if/else if condition for each of the letters of the alphabets and it fails.

Anyone can help us on this? @ulrich @Plankton @newuserkantu @admin

We are still encountering the issue on nested IFs.

Hi, do you have a test macro for me? If yes, we can probably fix this quite quickly.

But in my test all works fine:

{
  "Name": "nested if",
  "CreationDate": "2020-10-14",
  "Commands": [
    {
      "Command": "store",
      "Target": "1",
      "Value": "a"
    },
    {
      "Command": "if_v2",
      "Target": "${a} == 1",
      "Value": ""
    },
    {
      "Command": "if_v2",
      "Target": "${a} == 1",
      "Value": ""
    },
    {
      "Command": "if_v2",
      "Target": "${a} == 3",
      "Value": ""
    },
    {
      "Command": "echo",
      "Target": "not this one",
      "Value": ""
    },
    {
      "Command": "elseif",
      "Target": "${a} == 1",
      "Value": ""
    },
    {
      "Command": "echo",
      "Target": "This one",
      "Value": "green"
    },
    {
      "Command": "end",
      "Target": "",
      "Value": ""
    },
    {
      "Command": "end",
      "Target": "",
      "Value": ""
    },
    {
      "Command": "end",
      "Target": "",
      "Value": ""
    }
  ]
}

@Plankton @ulrich

Below is a sample macro with multiple nested if/elseif/else conditions. Apologies if this is not “cleaned-up” because I had to remove all the variables or links I’ve used on the macro.

Basically we have a variable where we extract the first letter from and from there, I split the ALPHABETS and translated it into IF/ELSE conditions so that the macro will traverse faster.

In my test suite, there are other submacros ran before this one but with the pasted script below, I can recreate the issue. The workaround I implemented here is instead of using IF/ELSE, I used gotoif_v2 and labels but on some of my processes, this workaround cannot be applied as it will mix up a lot of things on our submacro so I hope there is another workaround for this or a fix if this is a valid issue.

I cannot upload the file as I am a new user here but here is the macro that fails on my end:

Encountering the same issue @admin @ulrich

Why you do not use one if with multiple condition ?

I never seen any utility to use multiple separated if uno inside another if

Just FYI: This ticket is about the same “Nested
IF” issue. It includes a small test macro, too:

Currently we already have a workaround in place but having a nested if condition will be the best for our case.

Please keep me posted if the fix is already in place for this.
Thank you!

This issue is fixed with V6.0.2
