How to select text under multiple “div-li-a href” using css in selenium web driver

Tags: selenium-webdriver,css-selectors

Problem :

I want to select the tag under li. I have tried with below css:

By.cssSelector("div.grid_10 div.block id.tabs-container a[text()='Active Companies/Filing']"))
<div class="grid_10">
 <div class="box round first fullpage">
   <h2>View Theme Information</h2>
   <div class="block ">
     <script type="text/javascript"> $(window).load(function() { $('#loading').hide(); }); </script>
     <div class="block" style="margin-bottom: 40px;">
       <div id="loading" style="display: none;">  
        <div id="tabs-container" style="height:500px;">
          <ul class="tabs-menu">
            <li class="">
            <li class="current">
              <a href="#secondtab">Active Companies/Filing</a>

Please help?

Solution :

Actually there is no function text() in cssSelector. So using cssSelector you can't locate element with the text because there is no way to locate with inner text. You should try using xPath as below

By.xpath("//a[contains(text(),'Active Companies/Filing')]"))


By.xpath("//li[contains(.,'Active Companies/Filing')]"))

Hope it helps...:)
