Hi Naveen,

You can use UIExplorer to capture proper selector make sure you keep the attributes those are stable in selector and remove the attributes those changes frequently. In your case you see what are all the attributes those will change each time in that page?
If you can share the web page link.

Thanks,
Girish

Thanks Girish for helping me out. But in UI explorer also i am getting the same selector.
<webctrl aaname=' &#x9;&#x9;&#x9;&#x9;Projects' parentid='sidebar-nav' tag='DIV' />. I wont be able to share the link because it would require user credential to access this web page the web page but I can share the screen shot of the accordion so that you can get an idea.
