Here the other UI elements may be grandparent/parent/sibling/child/grandchild of the required UI elements to be located.
Before I practically demonstrate using different XPath Axes for locating the UI elements, I will first list down the XPath Axes available as part of this article.
The following are the different XPath Axes available:
Out of all the above available XPath Axes, the below will be enough for our learning in Selenium:
Here concludes this article.
In the next article, I will start explaining the first XPath AXES – following
