Element cannot be found with xpath expression

Post by Sellj on Fri Sep 28, 2012 5:10 pm

Hello,

we have the following html code and would like to click the button

Code:
<body>
<div class="abc">
<div class="def  ghi">
      <span class="jkl" onclick="javascript action">
            <span>
                  <input type="button" value="Bäume suchen">
            </span>
      </span>
...
by using

Code:
WebElement findGarField = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//button[contains(text(),'suchen')]"));
However, the element cannot be located. When using

Code:
WebElement findGarField = driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("input[type='button']"));
the element can be found but the page has more than one button. So we would like to find that specific button. How can we modify the xpath expression so the correct button can be found?

Regards,

Sellj

Solved by using

Code:
By.cssSelector("span.jkl span input[value='Bäume suchen']")

Other proposals are still welcome!!!
