Issues in identifying DIV with QTP:

Issues in identifying DIV with QTP:
Div stands for division and in case of HTML document,it defines a section in an document.
Nowadays developer prefer DIV over TABLE for design purpose.I have had heard that elements within DIV loads faster than within Table;i don’t know what is the exact difference and don’t want to discuss 🙂 as it’s out of scope as of now.QTP has a set of methods and properties for Table under micclass WEBTABLE, testers often come across the scenario when they have to choose between two alternatives TABLE and CHAIR, oh! no! 😉 CHAIR is not there,need to work on table without sitting on the chair?
Yes, if we have QTP we can do it too,that’s why i am against the saying “Pen is mightier than sword”, i believe “QTP is mightier than sword”.

Well,we need to fetch the “Class” or “Id” attribute in order to identify the particular DIV in HTML document object model and our mightiest code is as follows:


Function Identify_DIV()

Dim Obj

Set Obj= Description.Create

Obj("micclass").Value = "WebElement"  ' alternative

Obj("html tag").Value = "DIV"

Obj("class").Value = "header"



'Set Obj =Nothing

End Function

    Hi, is there a way to get the rows and columns of a table constructed entirely with divs?
    I have a table with no tag. It is constructed entirely using for rows and for the columns. How can I get the content of each cell and print it?
