Since id's are automatically generated, how might the charts be tested? We have an analytic tool which uses multiple drill-down charts. We would like to automate testing using Selenium or another open source test suite. Does anyone have suggestions?

I have read several other post, but none addressed testing the charts. Chart data, unlike normal UI, is rendered based on the requested ordering of the data. For example, list the 10 ten items from Z-A. If we wanted to automate clicking on a specific element, unfortunately it would be in a different location in the DOM each time depending on the underlying data.

I am sure the engineers at Sencha, and others, have figured out a solution to this challenge.

I appreciate everyone's feedback.
