accelQ's element explorer provides rich set of functionality to intuitively setup identification criterion for a UI element. However, in some rare situations where you are unable to construct the element selector visually, you can opt for providing advanced selector.
When you are in the advanced mode, you construct the selector manually and paste the string. Click on "Advanced" link in the top of the element explorer to switch to advanced mode.
Three different formats are supported in advanced mode. Refer to relevant technical documentation to understand specific syntax expected of the selector.
- jQuery format
- XPath format
- CSS format
Note, you can setup advanced selector either for an abstract element or an element available in a View (although, not so common).
