How to select an item in UiPath that starts with a string

0 votes
I'm using UiPath to select an item from a combobox in a windows rich client application. The items are formatted in the list as "Code - Description". I'd like to select the item by code only, rather than needing to know the description also.

As a UIPath newbie, thoughts on the best way to achieve this?

Just use a wildcard in selector. Given that Code is unique i.e 0001 and attribute name equals to id:

<id = 0001* />
