    Hello Pradeep,

    The document flow page of sales order is a GuiTree.
    We can expand the node and get item text of the column required.

    var o = session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/cntlTREE1/shellcont/shell/shellcont[1]/shell[1]");
    o.expandNode(" 1");
    o.expandNode(" 2");
    o.clickLink(" 3", "C 3");
    var _ITEMTEXT = o.getItemText(" 3", "C 3");

    Use getSubNodes() to get all nodes and them loop through them:

    var o = session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/cntlTREE1/shellcont/shell/shellcont[1]/shell[1]");
    var subNode= o.getSubNodes(" 2");
    var length = subNode.length;
    for (i = 3; i < length; i++) {
    var data = o.getItemText(" "+i, "C 3");

    Best Regards,

    • Hello Emmanuel,

      roughly speaking, nodeKey is row key and item name is the column.

      The node key often can be figured out by recording the selection of the line in question or by looping over all the entries delivered by method getNodes() or getSubNodes().

      The item names can be accessed through the columnNames property. The following script logs the item (=column) names of a table and the values of their top node (unfortunately there is not scripting method to access the column's title):

      var itemName;
      var tree = session.findById("wnd[0]/usr/cntlTREE1/shellcont/shell/shellcont[1]/shell[1]");
      var items= tree.columnNames;
      for(var i=0; i<items.length; i++){
      itemName = items.elementAt(i);
      session.utils.log(">"+itemName+"<:"+tree.getItemText(tree.topNode, itemName));
