  • 1.  How to identify when combo box is disabled

    How can I identify when a combo box is disabled on a web page?

    In my case, the combo box does not work directly, I must add the set value to field command, because the combobox element is located within a frame on the web page.

    Hello Jenny,

    I needed to see the HTML code to understand the scenario correctly.

    But what could you do

    - Wait for the Combobox element with the webWaitElement command and after validating whether the first option exists with the same command, but passing the CSS/Xpath of the first option (select > Option)

    - Or to validate if it is enabled, you can obtain the Combobox html and check if it has the 'disabled' tag or run a javascript command that returns it to you

    Hope this helps.
