Insert Unique ID in HTML?
The information on http://www.wilsonmar.com/1winrun.htm suggests having developers put in a "unique ID in the HTML they generate". Unfortunately our QA person doesn't know what that unique ID is, and I (not being a WR expert or a QA person -- I'm a developer) can't figure out from the docs what that would be.</p>
The basic problem is getting WR to recognise a table. The first cell in the table is a string that has some dynamically generated text in it. WR doesn't seem to be able to deal with it. I thought that using the "ID" attribute in the <TABLE> tag would do the trick but we can't find a way to get WR to find the table by that tag. The only solution we are aware of is to put static content into the first cell, but frankly I think that solution stinks.</p>
Is there something I can do in my HTML that will allow WR to keep identifying a table (or any element for that matter) as being the same element even if I decide to move it, change the content or any of the other things that happen on a regular basis during web development?</p>
Re: Insert Unique ID in HTML?
After speaking with a very helpful support person at Mercury today, we have determined that what we are looking for is the "html_id" property in the GUI map.</p>
Hopefully this information will help somebody else in the same situation.</p>
