    Hi enriquebravo,


    I am not a xpath expert...if the id number is dynamic, and id isn't unique to that div element, then you shouldn't have to look for the id attribute in your expression.  Something like  this might work: FindElement("//div//input")


    if the id is unique to that div element then you can simply verify that it exists, something like this might work:  FindElement("//div[@id]//input")


    if part of the attribute is unique, like the underscores, then you might be able to use the contains method, like this:  FindElement("//div[contains(@id, '__')]//input")


    Not sure if any of this works or helps, but I thought I'd share.
