Listbox item with semicolon

Listbox item with semicolon

Hello all,

Whith SQA i try to click on a Listbox with:


ComboBox Click, "ObjectIndex=" & iID, ""
ComboListBox Click, "ObjectIndex=" & iID, "Text=" & strRes

The item I want to select contains a semicolon(;) and a slash(/). Only I get a Script Command Failure on the line with ComobListBox. Why is this? Do more characters have this? And is it possible to escape these characters?

Thanks in advance,

RE: Listbox item with semicolon

After intensive search I did not find any solution, but I did find a work-around. Instead of the text of the item I use the Index.

Hopefully someone had encountered this before and has another solution.
