How to use regular expressions in LeanFT

Regular expressions are really useful to identify the objects in LeanFT.

We can specify the property values as regular expressions in 2 ways.

  1. Using description programming
  2. Using application model editor

Example with Description programming

Suppose you want to click on the link which contains text Softpost. In this scenario you can write the property value as shown in below statement.

var leanFTLink = browser.Describe<ILink>(new LinkDescription
TagName = @”A”,
InnerText =As.RegExp(@”.*LeanFT.*”),
Index = 1

Example with Application model editor

In application model editor, we can specify the regular expression as shown in below image. You just need to click on the * icon in front of the property value which you want to make as a regular expression.
