Can I set a variable to the result of an xpath?

#1

Hi there! I have a macro I'm trying to create to look up and display a few status messages. The behavior I need is something like:

  1. Go to a link
  2. Set a variable to the text at /html/body/div[5]/table[1]/tbody/tr[1]/td[2]
  3. Click on the link at /html/body/div[5]/table[1]/tbody/tr[1]/td[2]/a
  4. Set variable to to the text at /html/body/div[4]/table/tbody/tr[6]/td[2]
  5. Click on the link with the title "Storage"
  6. Set a variable to the text at /html/body/div[4]/table/tbody/tr[4]/td[3]
  7. Display a window with the text stored within each variable.

Is this possible? I was expecting to find a Google Chrome Control action called "set variable to xpath" or something similar, but I haven't been able to.

"Set Variable to Google Chrome Field" should be the one you are looking for.

Thanks for this! But so far I've only been able to select text inside of form fields, but not the text in xpath.
