Searching for an element within elements with no specific identifier

Hi, im trying to access a + button to click and expand a set of <li> items the structure is as follows:


   <li class="title1">

      <span class="button"></span>





   <li class="title2"></li>

   <li class="title3"></li>

   <li class="title4"></li>




The layout as follows has multiple <li> items which all contain the <span> element which when clicked expands the following <ul> element shown within the first <li> item. The <li> items all have specific 'title' attributes and the <span> button always has the same class. 


How would I able to use TestCompletes FindElement function in order to specifcally pick the <span> element within the <li> element containing the title 'title1'


Apologies if this question has been asked before, I just havent been able to fix the issue yet.

    Use Keyword test, to record your actions. Then convert the keyword test to scripts. You'll see the properties that TC has captured, which you can then use in FindElement.
