Clicking a link in a dynamic table basec on row and column reference
I am creating an automation that creates a table based on a specific search criteria, once the table is created it then searches the table for a specific row and column target and needs to click the link.
I can get as far as returning the text for the specified cell in the table but how do I enable the automation to click the link?
Is this a table in a web application? If so, is the table interrogated using the the HTML table designer?
If this is the case, then I would suggest that you also interrogate the link in the cell and that you use a 'Clones' approach. You can then use the performclick method on the correct link by passing the corresponding key of the cell. Here are some useful links for this approach:
If this is found in a windows application, then you may be still be able to use clones, but it depends on the technology used to build the application. Is there a performclick method available for the cell control?
