I created a test step to enter unix path location in a native dialog with External Application Text Input but the test execution always failed with error saying "Invalid parameter value". The location path is in the following format:
/path/to/a/folder

I have tried setting the parameter value with:
'/path/to/a/folder'
\\/path\\/to\\/a\\/folder
"/path/to/a/folder'

but they are failed. It worked when I enter just a single word as the parameter value. Please let me know what I have missed out. Thanks!

Hi,

As described in the documentation for this action (under this link, (search for "External Input Text (Application)" in the file), the external input text for SWT and RCP can only enter ASCII characters.

For your case here, I'd recommend building a module that copies the path you want to the clipboard and then using external key combination to paste it in the field with Ctrl+V or Mod1+V.

HTH,
Alex
