How to deal with #document tag under iframe

I want to operate on an element on a website, which is inside an iFrame and further inside a document tag. How to do that?


Are you referring to a structure like this?

<iframe id="FRAMENAME">

Yes. How to work with these?

Have you tried using XPath?

Yes. I did. I tried to copy the XPath from the webpage and use it, but due to this tag, it is not pointing on the correct element

@rishabhps It didnt work

I am getting a NoSuchElementException

You might want to insert a wait for your IFrame and element to load.

You can also use

new WebDriverWait(driver, 20).until(ExpectedConditions.frameToBeAvailableAndSwitchToIt("FRAMENAME")));

It will wait until the IFrame becomes available

Is their any other way to do this? Just curious

No Tim.

At the moment, Selenium does not have any other ways to work with iframe wrappers.

Hence you need to switch to specific one, to work with them.
