CROSS-POSTED here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/71003815/get-a-specific-text-value-from-an-html-table-using-python-and-selenium
This website (https://egov.uscis.gov/processing-times/) shows the processing time for different immigration applications for different service centers. There are two drop-down menus; first is the Form (immigration application), and second is the service center. Once you select a value from these two menus and hit the "Get processing time" button, a table will be displayed which shows the details for different immigration categories/types (you have to scroll down a bit to be able to see the table)(the table has three column titles: "Estimated time range", "Form type", "Receipt date for a case inquiry"). I want to use selenium with python to automate printing out the current range for processing time for form I-765 in Texas Service Center for the category of "Based on a pending I-485 adjustment application [(c)(9)]", which is the sixth row in the table.
As of 2/5/2022, I want my code to print out a text as: "11.5 Months to 13.5 Months".
Here is my attempt so far, but it only prints an empty string.
It opens the website, selects the right Form and then the right service center, and hits the button. But it fails to fetch the text I want from the table.
What if I want to print out all the text values in the 6th row?
