Type: Feature Request
find logic prioritization
With Find Logic for an element, sometimes the Find Logic uses Text Content on initial element recording and other times the Find Logic uses ID. 

I request for functionality in Test Studio to prioritize what logic is actually used in the Find Logic.  Generally speaking on the applications I have used Test Studio to automate testing, there are elements that has specific text content on a page.  These elements start out with their Find Logic to have TextContent since I think that is the most unique identifier about them.  But as TextContent is concerned, there is a possibility of change of text on that element.  So I would target the element with the ID of the element or the ID of a parent element and then use tagindex to be specific.

After initial recording, I put in the extra time to modify the Find Logic to fit my need.  

If an element does not have an Id, but the element has a direct parent (only 1 level above) element with an ID, use that parent element and then the additional find logic for specific element over using TextContent. 

Having this functionality of Find Logic prioritization will hopefully provide a general consistency to improve my user experience.

Hello Ewin,

I am currently reviewing the Test Studio feedback portal in order to organize any pending items, which were implemented at some point. That said, I cannot confirm when exactly the feature was implemented. 

However, I can confirm that during the last couple of years we have developed a lot of features and improved the stability of Test Studio dramatically. Of course, we continue working to deliver the most for test automation. 

You can take a look at our fresh product page here and check what's new in Test Studio. You can also download a free full featured trial version and give it a try for 30 days with included full support. 

In any case, thank you for your cooperation.
