Assert Table cell value

Postby Jaap » Thu Feb 18, 2010 7:17 am


I'm trying to validate a value from the eclipse variable view. In this view you see two colomns the first one contains a unique value (name of the variable) and the second colomn contains the value. I'm able to select the correct row using:

Code: Select all TreeItemLocator("i", new ViewLocator(

But how do I select the related value. The second colomn in the row? I did try using a TableItemLocator and for both the cellLocator. But non of them gives me the expected result.

The TreeItemLocator api has a hasText() method that can be used to validate a value in a tree item. But currently it does not have support for tree items with multiple columns, we are looking into enhancing the api to add this support. For now, as a workaround, you could get the tree item and then validate the value from the second column.

Code: Select all
IWidgetReference ref = (IWidgetReference) TreeItemLocator("i",
                                 new ViewLocator("org.eclipse.debug.ui.VariableView")));
TreeItem treeItem = (TreeItem) ref.getWidget();
assertEquals("expected", getValue(treeItem));

where getValue gets the text from the second column in the tree item

Code: Select all
private String getValue(final TreeItem item){
   final String[] result = new String[1];
   Display.getDefault().syncExec(new Runnable() {
      public void run() {
         result[0] = item.getText(1);
   return result[0];
