Tips and Syntax For This Page Xpath Exercise :

Using Double Slash

Syntax : //tagname

Where tagname is the name of the HTML element you want to search for.

Here are a few examples to demonstrate how to use the double slash in XPath:

e.g :
1) //p
2) //form/div[1]/div/div[1]/div/div/input[1]

Using Contains()

//HTML tag[contains(@attribute_name,'attribute_value')]



Here are a few examples to demonstrate how to use the Contains() in Selenium:

WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();
WebElement link = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//a[contains(text(), 'Link Text')]"));

In this example, the contains function is used to match a link whose text contains the string "Link Text". The resulting WebElement is then clicked, which simulates a user clicking the link on the page.
