[error] run command: element found is neither input nor textarea


#1

Using Chrome / Firefox | ‘Storage’ Mode

I am using csvRead and the internal variable on the next step to input data into a dropdown selector. When using the “Play Macro” button the macro fails at the point after csvRead with this error:

  • [error] run command: element found is neither input nor textarea

Strangely if i manually step through the Macro I receive a different error at the same point of failure:

  • [error] Internal variable “!COL12” not supported

Has anyone experienced this?


#2

This is what these errors mean:

You tried to use TYPE with an element that can not receive text input. Only input fields and the textarea field can receive text input via the selenium TYPE command. If you want to enter text e. g. into a CANVAS element, then you need to use xtype.

Currently Kantu supports up to 9 columns (!COL1 - !COL9). Do you need more?


#3

That is confusing. I have a Macro that includes ${!COL10} and this works OK!?!?


#4

Sorry, I was wrong. Correct:

Currently Kantu supports up to 10 columns (!COL1 - !COL10) :smiley:

Hi.
I am confused because I have another Macro which runs successfully and it uses a spreadsheet up to 11 columns (link={!COL11}) - the json is below. In addition as you can see this Macro is successful where I am using the command '_type_' for _csvread_ of _link={!COL8}_. However you have explained the reason for the other Macro failing is because TYPE cannot be used for a dropdown list selection? I have now been experimenting with XTYPE which apppears successful.
Thank you
