I feel kind of dumb asking this, but I am having a tough time using the wildcard symbol in TP.
I have a listbox where I want to select any random item. I have to have it random b/c I run my script against 3 or 4 versions of this app, and each version of the app has the items sorted a different way [very annoying might I add].
but neither seem to work.
I can't figure out what the heck I am doing wrong.
Thanks for your help.
Well, I find a workaround to my problem and I am just going to use to selectIndex method. It's probably a better approach than using the wildcard.
However, I am still curious as to why the wildcard symbol doesn't work, so if someone has an explanation, I would be glad to know about it.
The only place I use wildcards is in the object maps and I ever use them in a script. I know in most places in the script you can't use wildcards.
I suspect that it is a limitation of TP, OR TP was deliberately architected to not allow wildcards in select lists. As BMD stated, the ONLY place I use wildcards is in the object map. You hit on the correct solution - SelectIndex.
