I would like to extract an individual HTML attribute and use it later in the test.
This is possible with a coded solution. First, be aware that if you're simply verifying the value for a specific attribute, that can be accomplished without code using an Advanced Verification.
HTML elements are formatted the following way:
<a href="http://www.google.com" lang="en" id="googleLink">Go to Google</a>
Here's how to set the value of the lang attribute (which is en) to a string. That string is then set as an extracted value to use later in the test through data binding (either attached to an input value or a verification).
HtmlAnchor a = Find.ById<HtmlAnchor>("googleLink"); Assert.IsNotNull(a); string atr = a.Attributes.Single(x => x.Name == "lang").Value; Log.WriteLine(atr); SetExtractedValue("extraction", atr);
Dim a As HtmlAnchor = Find.ById(Of HtmlAnchor)("googleLink") Assert.IsNotNull(a) Dim atr As String = a.Attributes.[Single](Function(x) x.Name = "lang").Value Log.WriteLine(atr) SetExtractedValue("extraction", atr)
