How to select click on text inside div by text

on Tue Aug 11, 2009 12:18 pm
Hi,

This is the problem faced by one of the selenium user that how to click on the div on basis of text instead of id.

For example:
<div id="MainTreeMenuTreeWebPanelMainTree_1_2">
<span style="padding-left: 16px;"/>
<span>New Contact History</span>
</div>

Solution for above problem :
There is 2 way to do it.
  • First If you span text is unique on the screen and is clickable, then you can use link=New Contact
    History


    Second way to create a dom/xpath for that span which contain the text, //div[@id='MainTreeMenuTreeWebPanelMainTree']/span[@text='New Contact
    History']


So, by these 2 ways you can click on your element by name.

Best Of luck.
