We are currently working on a selenium project. Can you guys help me to find the xpath locator for the logout button in the application?
Below is a screenshot of the code for the element for which I'm trying to find the xpath.
As @Nathan_Cooper already commented I would ask to add Ids to the objects.
If it's not possible, or if the HTML is dynamic, I would start a little higher than the other answer, in particular from
<div class="header_menu logout">
as I assume that a
div with a class
logout will always wrap the logout button.
If you want to do it manually, then you will have to trace the path from the root of the host up to where the element is being generated.
There is an easy way to get the xpath. In Mozilla FireFox install Firebug addon. Then install Firepath addon. Now visit your web page. Press F12 to open Firebug console. Click on the Firepath tab. Inspect the element you want to get the xpath of. Xpath of that element will be displayed in the Firepath console.
