Assume the following DOM fragment:

    <div id="ctl00_mainContent_ddl_destinationStation1_CTNR" class="search_options_menucontentbg" style="z-index: 999999; display: block;">
    <div id="glsctl00_mainContent_ddl_destinationStation1_CTNR">
    <a id="closebtn" class="close-btn close" href="#">X</a>
    <table id="citydropdown" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" width="700">
           <td class="leftbg"/>
           <td class="mapbg">
              <div class="btnrow">
                 <div class="heading"/>
                 <div class="search_options_menucontent" align="center" border="0" width="100%">
                    <div id="dropdownGroup1">
                       <h3 class="title1">India</h3>
                       <div class="dropdownDiv">
                          <li class="city_selected ">
                             <a class="" value="IXB" text="Bagdogra (IXB)" onclick="javascript:$CityDropDown.SetSelectedValue(this);return false;" tooltip="" href="#"> Bagdogra (IXB)</a>
                         <li class="">
                            <a class="" value="BLR" text="Bengaluru (BLR)" onclick="javascript:$CityDropDown.SetSelectedValue(this);return false;" tooltip="" href="#"> Bengaluru (BLR)</a>
                         <li class="">

  • just and additional note-I want to traverse from node starting from <div id="ctl00_mainContent_ddl_destinationStation1_CTNR" to a web element- <a class="" value="IXB" text="Bagdogra (IXB)" – Abhishek Apr 26 '16 at 2:33
  • Please provide your output element. Which you wanted to find. – Sagar007 Apr 26 '16 at 8:43
  • Please provide some information, and a question. What element are you wanting to traverse to from which element? The more information you provide the better answer you will get. – Paul Muir Apr 26 '16 at 11:29

First off, either you mistyped the HTML or the HTML is malformed -- note the two consecutive <tr> tags.

That aside, rather than answer the question, I suggest you look at this StackOverflow question on using sibling operators in XPath.
