storeValue (target, pattern) - Selenium IDE command

The storeValue is used to move the value of an element into a variable for future use. Note that for website input boxes the text is the value, so storeValue is used to retrieve text from inside input boxes.

storeValue Example

This macro extracts a phone number from the input box of a website.

Command Target Pattern/Text
open https://a9t9.com/
storeValue id=phone myphone
echo Phone = ${phone}
