I have a requirement, i want to extract data from webpage i observed there is some data web control class is <webctrl class=‘desc filter-exact-match part-description’ and some data is <webctrl class=‘desc filter-possible-match part-description’ is there any option i can pass wildcard to extarct data irrespective of possible match or exact match ?
I tried passing wildcard by replacing possible/exact it didn’t work and i tried to pass entire webctrl class as wildcard its utter failure.
My Full Metadata selector :
any other suggestion ???
Replace variable part in selector with wild card ‘*’ and then validate selector to check whether it is valid or not.
Can you try with this selector ‘desc filter-*-match part-description’.
When i try this * output as * only.
Sorry, I couldn’t understand the above point.
Are you speaking about the data scraping activity and it’s xml selector?
If so, then I can confirm that it doesn’t understand wildcards just yet. I believe it will be improved in the future (cannot provide specific timeline).
"<webctrl id='canvas_?' tag='CANVAS' />" or
"<webctrl id='canvas_*' tag='CANVAS' />"
is not working… And more over… UIpath is changed completely… No option to validate
Could you explain a bit more? Feel free to create a new topic with a detailed explanation of your issue. Context is everything when solving issues with selectors
