Problem selecting text box

Hi. I’m new to the software and I’ve been trying to complete an online form for testing purposes, I’m having trouble entering text into the description box of the following website:

http://www.classtize.com/post-ad-free

I’ve managed to do everything else including the dropdown but no matter what I try I can’t select and type into the box. Any help gratefully received

Indeed, classic selenium ide commands fail on this text box - nothing gets recorded when I type inside. => So the solution is to use XClick and XType to fill the text box.

  • store | your text | !clipboard store text in clipboard
  • xclick | image.png (set the focus in the box)
  • xtype | ${KEY_CTRL+KEY_V} paste text

thanks for the reply. I’ve tried that, see the above screenshot and it still not working. The copying to clipboard is set thank you, it’s just not moving on from the title above. You

What does this mean?

it’s not moving from the title box to the detail box

Hi, the XCLICK method works fine in my test:

{
  "Name": "textbox",
  "CreationDate": "2021-10-28",
  "Commands": [
    {
      "Command": "open",
      "Target": "http://www.classtize.com/post-ad-free",
      "Value": "",
      "Description": ""
    },
    {
      "Command": "type",
      "Target": "id=ad_title",
      "Value": "testing1",
      "Description": ""
    },
    {
      "Command": "XClickRelative",
      "Target": "textbox_dpi_168.png",
      "Value": "",
      "Description": ""
    },
    {
      "Command": "XType",
      "Target": "Hello${KEY_ENTER}It works!",
      "Value": "",
      "Description": ""
    }
  ]
}
