Need to write a smart RanoreXPath

Post by kkmmaa » Thu Nov 08, 2012 3:39 pm

Hi,

I need to write a smart RanoreXPath that will find the div of text Flight 2242 and will hit <div class="x-list-disclosure "/> of the following code.

Current solution:
.//div[@innertext='Flight 2242']/../../../../div[2]


But, I need a smarter one that does not need to travel by hard coded parents like this /../../../../
Something, theoretically,


.//div[@innertext='Flight 2242']/((../)*div[@class~'x-list-disclosure'])*


Or, I need to write a user code function that can travel to parent and look for the right div child? Thanks for any comments.

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<div id="ext-component-6" class="x-list-container">
  
  <div class="x-list-item" id="ext-element-168">
    
    <div class="x-list-item-label">
      
      <div class="list-item-main">
        
        <div class="top gs-top">
          
          <div class="left clr-white">[b]Flight 2242[/b]</div>
          
          <div class="right clr-white gs-top-right-due">
            Time remaining is 
            
            <span class="em-time">6:30</span>
            
          </div>
          
        </div>
        
        <div class="bottom">
          
          <div class="cell2 left">
            
            <table class="tbl">
              
              <tbody>
                
                <tr>
                  
                  <td class="bdr-bottom">737-200 - 245</td>
                  
                </tr>
                
                <tr>
                  
                  <td class="bdr-bottom">19 Planned Items (SERVICE)</td>
                  
                </tr>

                </tr>
                
              </tbody>
              
            </table>

Hello,

Yes, can use the 'ancestor' operator to get the parents and grandparents of the current node.

For example:
.//div[@innertext='Flight 2242']//ancestor::div[@class~'x-list-disclosure']

You can find more information about RanoreXPath in the section Layout of Advanced RanoreXPath Editor in our user guide.

Regards,
Bernhard

Thank you for the reply. I am naive about it. But, can you please clarify, is C is an ancestor of I

Code: Select all

      |
      G
     / \
    E   F
   /     \
  C       H
            \
             I

Hello,

You are completely right, I made a little mistake in the RxPath. The following RxPath should work.

.//div[@innertext='Flight 2242']//ancestor::node()/div[@class~'x-list-disclosure']

Thank you!

Regards,
Bernhard
