Hi all,

I am new to canoo and have been trying to build a few test scripts.  I have
this code below which does not execute:
      description="Enter an invalid email address"
            name="portlet_12_1{actionForm.fromField}" />

The error I get is:
C:\canoo\doc\samples\ContactERICTest.xml:5: Canoo Webtest: R_1258.
Test failed.
Test step setInputField (C:\canoo\doc\samples\ContactERICTest.xml:26: )
named "
Enter an invalid email address" failed with message "No suitable form found
having field named "portlet_12_1{actionForm.fromField}""

I have confirmed the input box is in fact named correctly:
<input type="text" name="portlet_12_1{actionForm.fromField}"
id="portlet_12_1{actionForm.fromField}" size="40" class="inputFields"/>

I suspect the problem is with the { } in the form fields of the input box.
Can anyone confirm that this IS the problem and suggest a work around?
