Can't finding TD's DIV using EvaluateXPath Method.


My scenario is like this..



<tr>


  <td>


  <td>


    <div>requirdText</div>


  <td>


  <td>


    <div>STATUS</div>


   <td>


   .


   .


   .


 </tr>


I am trying to use EvaluateXPath method to find the "STATUS" if page contains "requiredText"



Here is my XPath..



var obj = page.EvaluateXPath("//*[contains(text(), '" + text+ "')]/../../td[4]/div");



if ( obj !== null && obj !== undefined ) {



     var status = obj[0].innerText;

     Log.Message(status);



  }


When i run the script it gives me below error...



'0.innerText' is null or not an object



Any idea what might possible be gone wrong or how can i my expected resut?



Thanks in advance for you help.


  • You need to convert the EvaluateXPath result to a JScript-compatible array (this is mentioned in the EvaluateXPath method description):



    var obj = page.EvaluateXPath(...);



    if (obj != null) {

      obj = obj.toArray();

      ...

    }



    Or, you can use FindChildByXPath instead - it returns a single object instead of an array.
