We can select elements using xpath with Selenium webdriver. Xpath is one of the most important locators. There are two types of xpath. They are known as absolute [starting from parent node in DOM] and relative xpath [starting from anywhere in DOM].
The xpath syntax is − //tagname[@attribute='value'] or //*[@attribute='value'].
Let us consider the html code of an element that we shall identify with the help of xpath−
The xpath expression is //input[@name='firstname'] or //*[@name='firstname'].
from selenium import webdriver driver = webdriver.Chrome(executable_path="C:\\chromedriver.exe") driver.implicitly_wait(0.5) driver.get("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/selenium/selenium_automation_practice.htm") // identify element with xpath l = driver.find_element_by_xpath("//input[@name='firstname']") l.send_keys("Python") driver.quit()
