A little bit of background:
The HTML looks like this:
A simple version of the code looks like this: (run in pry)
 pry> e = driver.find_element(:xpath, "//table/tbody/tr/td/span")
=> #<Selenium::WebDriver::Element:0x7ba9a4d694458ec id=":wdc:1361791490676">
 pry> e.text
 pry> e = driver.find_element(:xpath, "//table/tbody/tr/td/span[contains(text(),'Auto')]")
Selenium::WebDriver::Error::NoSuchElementError: The element could not be found
from /Users/ben/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p194/gems/selenium-webdriver-2.29.0/lib/selenium/webdriver/remote/response.rb:52:in `assert_ok'
I have no access to changing the HTML code
Although there is only one row in this table there is the possibility of more being added and I cannot predict the location of the row, this is why i am trying to find it by name
my normal code is:
e = driver.find_element(:xpath, "//table/tbody/tr[td/span[contains(text(),'Auto')]]")
The problem I am having is that I cannot find any way of getting the row in the table by the name given in the text of the first table cell.
Use below xpath
