How can I append element to the current XPath?

Post by Broadnick » Fri Aug 18, 2017 1:26 pm

I'm trying to "append" a new element to my current XPATH. The problem is when I use "Update Path", all my XPATH is "recalculated" and i lost all customizations in the current XPATH.

How can I append the new element at the end of the current XPATH, without the need to manually write that new part or copy/paste the entire XPATH to keep customization?

I mean, I need a "Append to current XPATH" rather than a "Update Path". :D

Hi,

What you can do is this (semi-automatic/semi-manual way of entering elements):
- add / character at the end of xpath
- now press Ctrl+Space >> there should appear a context menu, with list of available xpath axes, characters, elements and their attributes, from which you can select the appropriate item. Now you can keep using Ctrl+Space to construct the xpath as you wish. Hope this helps?
