- Mabl trainer- "Select Control-Any Item" selection from “Find elements” to randomize elements

Currently, when using this function, the first element is always selected from a list of several items.

Example on the following question:

"Are you satisfied with this Application?"

Dropdown list Answers:





When using "Find Elements" for this question, and selecting "Select Control-Any Item". it will always select the first item in the dropdown list 


what would help our Application: To select a randomized answer between "Yes", "No", "Maybe"


This can also be done with Java script code, but it would be much easier to have this feature included, as our Application has multiples questions/fields similar to the example above, and it could speed up the process of creating an Application where randomized elements are selected.

    At the moment we have Any / First / Last option with selectors and as noted by the OP 'Any' and 'First' seem to be functionally indistinguishable.

    I agree it would be much more useful if the 'Any' option chose a pseudo random element which matches the selector.

    My use case is with selection list's. Sometimes bugs hide in obscure combinations of selections which do not appear in a normal 'happy path' test. It would be good to be able to randomize selections so that over time we get coverage of all possible selection combinations.
