Data extraction, xml code supports wildcard?


#1

Hi,

I am just wondering, whether I can use any kind of wildcard in the ExtractMetadata code in ExtractData activity.
E.g.: I would like to search for div tag the class of which starts with ‘active’:

thanks!

I’m looking for the same answer…so far it doesn’t seem to be working. I have a table with rows that have alternating classes for highlighting and I’d love to wild card that out while still being able to select the existing class.

Has anyone received an answer on this? Im dealing with a very similar situation. I tried wildcards inside my xml with no luck. I have a web page that i need to scrape that changes classes very often. It would be nice if i could just use wild cards instead of having to update my xaml file ever other week.
