gotoIf flow control - Selenium IDE
gotoIf (expression, label) - Selenium IDE command
For more examples see the if-command page, and the internal variables !LastCommandOK and !errorIgnore.
Flow control logic is a regular UI.Vision RPA Selenium IDE feature. In the classic Selenium IDE you can add support for flow control by installing the Flow Control plugin.
GotoIf uses executeScript_Sandbox
UI Vision Selenium IDE++ (Kantu) V5.0 uses executeScript_Sandbox to evaluate the expression. The old "GotoIf" continues to use storeEval. Please read here about the difference.
In the macro source code the new version of GOTOIF is "Command": "GotoIf". The old version continues to use "Command": "GotoIf" for backward-compatibility.
GotoIf flow control - Demo Video
This video shows how to use gotoIf and storeValue to wait for the user to select a file. It loops between gotoIf...label until the length of the extracted string is greater than 1.Click [ ] in the video player to enlarge the video.
The example below is very basic. Best if you see the flow logic in action by running the DemoIfElse macro that installs with the IDE.
|gotoIf||8 > 5||MYLABEL|
|echo||This line is never reached!|
