New Selenium IDE – store attribute command

Follow the below steps for practicing store attribute command in Selenium IDE along with me:

1) Let’s write the below code in Selenium IDE to retrieve and store the value of the given attribute of the located UI element into a variable and then print the value stored in the variable using the ‘echo’ command.

Note: I have given the id locating strategy id=but2 for locating the UI element shown at the beginning of the article.

Also, observe that along with the above id locating strategy, we need to append the attribute name to the locating strategy with @ symbol as shown below: (i.e. attribute name who’s value needs to be retrieved – id=but2@type)
