How to properly input into a type ahead file

How to properly input into a type ahead file

(OP)
I am using Selenium IDE for the first to create a simple regression test of a PHP input form on a web page. One of the fields is defined as a type ahead field. I enter the first 2 characters, and then click on the first matching item in the list displayed. However, when I replay the test, the input displayed in the field is "undefined". Any idea why this is happening and what is the correct action for this type of field.

<tr>
    <td>type</td>
    <td>sales-person-input</td>
    <td>ad</td>
</tr>
<tr>
    <td>click</td>
    <td>//div[@id='sales-person-container']/div/div[2]/ul/li[1]</td>
    <td></td>
</tr>
 

RE: How to properly input into a type ahead file


Are you waiting for the list to populate before clicking on the first item? It doesn't sound like you are...

The "waitFor" prefix is very handy for just such a thing (e.g. "waitForXpathCount")
