Try .getSelectedItems to get the currently selected option. Try .getAllContents to get an array of the available options.
This info from http://groups.google.com/group/watir-general/browse_thread/thread/22400557ce0ef33d/d2b1ff0fe5559bf4?lnk=gst&q=get+value+of+select_list#d2b1ff0fe5559bf4 Once you have an array of options, you should be able to iterate through them. Hope it helps. orde On Jan 21, 1:11 pm, Shlomit Gazit <shlomitpatr...@gmail.com> wrote: > Hello Tiffany and Orde, > > getSelectedOptions gave me:undefined method `getSelectedOptions' for > #<Watir::SelectList:0x31482e8> error. > > In anyhow: > > I am doing: > > status_value = $ie.select_list(:name, "selectedImperativeStatusId").value > > status_next_value = (status_value.to_f + 1).to_s > > *puts*(status_next_value.*class*) > > # 2 > > * puts*(status_next_value) > > # String > > * puts*(status_next_value) > > #3.0 > > $ie.select_list(:name, "selectedImperativeStatusId").select_value( > "status_next_value") > > Although status_next_value is showing as a String class, I am getting: > > Watir::Exception::NoValueFoundException: No option with value of > status_next_value in this select element. > > Somehow it is showing 3.0 instead of 3. > > Any idea? > > Basically I need each time to select a different selection from the list, > than the one that has already been selected. > > > > On Thu, Jan 21, 2010 at 10:34 AM, Tiffany Fodor <tcfo...@comcast.net> wrote: > > Hi Shlomit! > > > You can get the current selected values like this: > > > browser.select_list(:id, 'my_select_list').getSelectedOptions > > > This returns an array of all selected options, so if there's only > > one, > > > browser.select_list(:id, 'my_select_list').getSelectedOptions > > > will give you the text. > > > Hope this helps! > > > -Tiffany > > > On Jan 21, 11:16 am, Shlomit Gazit <shlomitpatr...@gmail.com> wrote: > > > How can I find out what has been selected in a dropdown? > > > I would like to always modify the find value but I should know first > > > what the value was. > > > > Any idea anyone? > > > -- > > You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups > > "Watir General" group. > > To post to this group, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org > > Before posting, please read the following guidelines: > >http://wiki.openqa.org/display/WTR/Support > > To unsubscribe from this group, send email to > > watir-general-unsubscr...@googlegroups.com > > For more options, visit this group at > >http://groups.google.com/group/watir-general
