Protractor find element inside a repeater

Questions:

Below is my markup

<tr ng-repeat="post in posts">
  <td ng-click="activePost(post)" class="title">{{post.title}}</td>
  <td><button class="btn btn-danger" ng-click="delete(post)">Delete</button>
  </td>
</tr>

I’m trying to get the element with the title class.

The code I use to access the repeater is:

postsList = element.all(by.repeater('post in posts'));

Is there a way to get the element by doing something like the following in jQuery:

var titleText = $("tr:first").find(".title").text();

Is there a way of doing something similar to this with protractor?

Answers:

this should work for your example:

element.all(by.repeater('post in posts')).then(function(posts) {
   var titleElement = posts[0].element(by.className('title'));
   expect(titleElement.getText()).toEqual('YourEnteredTitle');
});

The answer from nilsK helped me, but didn’t work completely. The code below did the trick:

element.all(by.repeater('post in posts')).then(function(posts) {
   var titleElement = posts[0].element(by.className('title'));
   expect(titleElement.getText()).toEqual('YourEnteredTitle');
});

you have to find a element inside a array as explained here https://github.com/angular/protractor/issues/877

var items = element.all(by.repeater('userGroup in userGroups')).filter(function(item) {
     return item.element(by.binding('userGroup.name')).getText().then(function(label) {
           return label === 'MyGroupName';
     });
  });
items.get(0).element(by.css('.buttongochose')).click();

From the docs:
https://github.com/angular/protractor/blob/master/docs/locators.md

var clickable = element.all(by.repeater('post in posts')).first().all(by.tagName('td')).first();

An even better solution:

expect(
$$(by.repeater('post in posts')).get(0).$('.title').getText()
).toBe('Your title');
