    Re: GetContents ( ) Issue Help please..

    the caption should be returned by default. you should only see the prior text if the object has no caption.

    from help...

    "For objects with no caption, GetContents returns either the prior static text string or an index number for the object."

    GetContents ( ) Issue Help please..

    When I use GetContents() on the following page, instead of captions I get index or prior for a lot of items. How can I force getcontents to only get captions which is defined for each object. (Note: change file extension from .txt to .htm)

    here is the code
    [ ] Browser.SetActive()
    [ ] listprint( BrowserPage.GetContents())

    Sample of Results

    [ ] [HtmlCheckBox]M
    [ ] [HtmlText]M
    [ ] [HtmlText]^Order:
    [ ] [HtmlText]Mutual Fund
    [ ] [HtmlLink]^Mutual Fund
    [ ] [HtmlCheckBox]USST
    [ ] [HtmlText]USST
    [ ] [HtmlText]#20
    [ ] [HtmlText]US STOCKS
    [ ] [HtmlLink]^US STOCKS
    [ ] [HtmlCheckBox]E

    If you look at the attached page all the objects have captions associated with them. Then why it is listing prior text or indexes.
    Anyone else..

    Make sure in Record Window Declarations | Options, that the Default tag is set to
    'Caption' - not set to 'Prior text'.

    I made sure that window Declarations | Options,is set to 'Caption' - not set to 'Prior text'. it didn't work.
    You can try if you like.
    I am using SP2a and I am wondering if that is the reason..

    You really want to get the caption, not the contents, so use GetCaption():
    You may want to do some extra massage work if that's not exactly the list that you want, but you get the idea.

    Bro, This is clever..
    Thanks.

    While exploring other ways we found out that if you play with the borderless table settings you can also get captions of a perticular column you are interested in. As you increase the table setting silk groups object togather.
    Thanks again.

    I would think GetContents() would behave
    similarly to GetCaption() under the same
    settings.
