We can extract values from a specific cell (say 2nd row and 3rd column) inside a table in Selenium. First of all we need to locate the cell with the help of xpath locator.
Since the row and column numbers are given, we can create a customized xpath with the help of indexes specified for both <tr> and <td> tags. The rows of a table are represented by <tr> tag in html code. The data in each row is enclosed with the <td> tag in html. Thus a <td> tag’s parent is always a <tr> tag.
So to get the value at the second row and second column, we have to mention the row as tr and the third column will be identified as td.
The html code snippet of a table header is as described below −
Coding Implementation for getting value from second row and second column.
from selenium import webdriver #browser exposes an executable file #Through Selenium test we will invoke the executable file which will then #invoke actual browser driver = webdriver.Chrome(executable_path="C:\\chromedriver.exe") # to maximize the browser window driver.maximize_window() #get method to launch the URL driver.get("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/plsql/plsql_basic_syntax.htm") #to refresh the browser driver.refresh() # to get the data from 2nd row and 2nd column directly val = driver.find_elements_by_xpath("//table/tbody/tr/td").text # print the value in console print(val) #to close the browser driver.close()
