I’m working on an application that scrapes the date out of an online agenda to later migrate it to an other one. The agenda looks like the screenshot included. I can scrape the first page, but when you click on the appointment it show additional information I also need to scrape, how can I decide where to click. As I said I can scrape all the appointments, but although it has an excel look, it’s not structured that way, when scraping the result is a datatable with only one row and 7 columns for every day one. For now I scrape all the appointments, then extract all the names from the appointments, cause I need the names to get additional information from the patient tab. I tried using that name dnamicly in the selector for the click, but that didn’t work (aaname=’"+name+"’ ), I also actually need to click on the red or blue colored onces, any tips on how to achieve this?
Ah I understand the issue. You might not have access until you hover or click over the element which makes it (just maybe 4% ) trickier than it is supposed to be.
Although without knowing the application you are working on this would end up being a tall claim so can you provide more details with this?
App name, exact usecase as to why can the other details be scraped during the second iteration/run, are there API’s we can explore etc…
No api’s for the moment, it’s an online agenda where patients can make appointments to see the doctor, for testing purpose I now use the selector I got when I clicked on an element and I can see that depending on where I click the aaname changes, sometimes it’s just the name, sometimes it includes the time and sometimes it isn’t there at all but I get an idx instead, it’s not in the second iteration the details are being scraped succesfully, it’s in the same iteration but in a different place.
Let me explain the flow.
I first use datascrapping to get all the appointments, then I loop the datatable for each row and extract the fullname from the values, then it’s suposed to click for each name on the appointment making a popup appear (like in attachement) where I have to scrape some more information, like the reason they’re visiting and then I navigate to the patient tab, put the name in a searchbar to get the patientinformation, scrape that and write everything in a csv file, for now, later on I should create jsonobjects of it for importation, but their api isn’t ready yet
The first part and the last part I got handled, it’s just getting the popu that’s giving me a hard time
This is the error I’m getting:
