storeText (target, pattern) - Selenium IDE command

The storeText command in the Selenium IDE software testing tool is useful to store text value of page element of software web application in to variable for future use. Do not confuse this with the "storeTextPresent" command which is not for storing value of any target element, but could be used to verify that specified target text is available on page or not. The new IDE does not support storeTextPresent yet (if you need it, let us know!).

storeText Example

Command Target Pattern/Text
storeText //*[@id="content"]/div[2]/div/h2[1] name
echo Name var = ${name}
