BrowserField2:executeScript("document.getElementById()") doesn't work

I have an element with id= testOnetapButton01 on the web page. and in BrowserFieldListener:documentLoaded I am able to get the element:


        Element testOnetapButton = document

but when I tried to call BrowserField.executeScript("document.getElementById('testOnetapButton01')"), I got ExecuteScript Exception:

ExecuteScript Exception: TypeError: Result of expression 'window.document.getElementById("testOnetap[0.0] Button01")' [null] is not an object.


It's weired that the element id is changed([0.0] is inserted in the middle).


This is the event handler for documentLoaded:


public void documentLoaded(BrowserField browserField, Document document)
            throws Exception {
        if ((browserField != null) && (document != null)) {
            String title = browserField.getDocumentTitle();
            System.out.println("[" + this.getClass().getName() + "] Document '"
                    + title + "' loaded");
        super.documentLoaded(browserField, document);
        Element testOnetapButton = document
        if (testOnetapButton == null) {
            // browserField.executeScript("alert('did not get the button element')");
        } else {
                    .println("!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DEBUG BLOCK START!!!!!!!!!!!!!!");
            String id = testOnetapButton.getAttribute("id");

                    .println("Element id = " + id);
            try {
                // browserField.executeScript("alert('GOT the button element!')");
                final String script = "window.document.getElementById(\"testOnetapButton01\").click()";

            } catch (Exception e) {

                        .println("ExecuteScript Exception: " + e.getMessage());
                        .println("!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DEBUG BLOCK END!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!");
                String msg = e.getMessage();


What am I did wrong?


Thanks a lot.
