Getting the value of a hidden element

Hi guys!

I’m trying to read the values of a dropdown in a web browser to confirm some choices are available, but I can’t get the values using a ‘Get Value from Browser’ operation without clicking the dropdown to make all the options visible on the page first. Is there any way in ORQA I can get the values without making them visible on the screen first?


Hi SteelyBadger,

ORQA will try and best replicate what a user would be able to see and do with regard to any hidden elements on a web page. However in some cases, appending your xpath with /@innerHTML will allow the value of a hidden element to be read. Hope that helps!
