Having trouble verifying text in table

Asked by Ali Ahmed on 2021-01-06

So for the test I'm creating a new record for table. I'm identifying the text region where it would appear in table and using this line to ID it


and using the following line to store text in object.


when I print it in prints the correct text but when I run the test and view the html report generated it showing it fails since and it

it is grabbing the text but for some reason theres is a extra digit at the end of it which is why it is failing when I do comparison.

However when I go back to run code in run selection its prints the correct text in console once again.

If the pick up text is already 'real' alphanumerics, i.e. not an image like graphical "text" representation, you could also use the copy-to -clipboard functionality. Btw, wouldn't you need to use '.getText()' to get a single text string, or also 'readWord()'?

I was able to grab text that way. I tried using get getText() I could get it work. Does getText() need a png file to work, correct? because what I want to do is validate a string and check to see if its the same as value the one I entered to see if record was created. And it will be different for each run.
I was not aware of the readWord() was a function in sikuli.
