Here is the html I am working on, the concept is to loop through the table and fetch all the td values. And based on the first td value, fetch the second td with tag strong inside the td tag e.g: I have to fetch Case ID so i need to first check the first td value, if it is Case id than based on the i need to save the value inside the strong tag in a variable and use this value in the code

<table class="table table-condensed">
        <tbody><tr>
            <td>Case ID: </td>
            <td> <strong>3406872</strong></td>
        </tr>
                                    <tr>
                <td>Date of Case: </td>
                <td><strong>24-09-2018 05:54 AM</strong></td>
            </tr>

            </td>
        </tr>

The Code that i am writing is:

List<WebElement> allrows= driver.findElements(By.xpath("//table[@class='table table-condensed']/tbody/tr"));
    int rows = allrows.size();
    //System.out.println(rows);
    for(int i=0; i<rows;i++) {
        List<WebElement> Columns= allrows.get(i).findElements(By.tagName("td"));

            for(int j=0;j<2;j++) {

                String CaseV = Columns.get(j).getText();
                System.out.println(CaseV);

It is fetching me all the values like this:(This is how it comes on console) Case ID:

3412943

Date of Case:

26-09-2018 13:27 PM

Name:

j k

How can i achieve this? Can Somebody help me with this? Let me know if more information is needed?

  • Can you please post the HTML code rather than an image. Would like to give a try - but no energy for entering the HTML :( – Dakshinamurthy Karra Oct 3 '18 at 8:20
  • I have added the HTML Code – shreya_bhatngr Oct 3 '18 at 8:29
  • What should you fetch eventually in your ideal case according to given example? You only show what your code fetches. – Alexey R. Oct 3 '18 at 11:26

You can use the following XPath to find all td that are followed by td having text CaseID.

/html/body/table/tbody/tr/td[contains(text(), "Case ID")]/following-sibling::td

Just do a getText() on the WebElement to get the numeric value.

  • That said if your table contains only one entry, just using /html/body/table/tbody/tr[1]/td[2] might be easier. – Dakshinamurthy Karra Oct 3 '18 at 9:11

Another approach would be to get all the <tr> elements and then search each individual <tr> element for both <td> elements. Assuming the page isn`t dynamic/doesn`t change much, the first one will always be the title of the field and second one will be its value.

Here is an example in Python using Selenium:

# dictionary keys are titles as they are on the website, 
# except in lowercase and the ":" is stripped
result_data = {}
tr_elements = webdriver.find_elements_by_css_selector("tr")
for tr_element in tr_elements:
    td_elements = tr_element.find_elements_by_css_selector("td")
    title = td_elements[0].text
    value = td_elements[1].text
    result_data[title] = value.lower().strip(":")
print(result_data)
