project not working

Submitted: 7/26/2017
This file is showing green lights all the way through but no data is being pulled back.  When I run the file, debugging said no links are found, but links are selelcted and green on my project.   How do I resolve?

Hi,

The pagearea selects only one area that's why it is navigating only on one link. I modified the agent.

Best regards,

so again, how do i capture it?  I need to be able to capture that information.....

Nope, it doesn't.  See the data.  Each product should be on its own line and all 3 products should be selected.   Your file is only selecting product 1 and all the data in ordering information is in one spreadsheet line...

Hi,

I don't have the green. This is because of the XPath associated with the selection, see screenshot. The code, highlighted in yellow, changes everytime you load the page. You have to make sure that you exclude that.

Best regards,

Product #3 should be selecting the link under the lipidplus controls. 


Unfortunately, no matter what I select, it will not select those links.  How do I select those so the elements are pulled back?

 On this page http://jant.jantdx.com/categories/total-cholesterol-glucose-testing#collapse13

 

The LipidPlus® Total Cholesterol and Glucose Measuring System = //DIV[@class='view view-category-doa-product-name view-id-category_doa_product_name view-display-id-block view-dom-id-56fa4605dffa3375d4f40faeb24c7025']/DIV[1]/DIV[1]/UL[1]/LI[1]/DIV[1]/SPAN[1]/A[1] and would be changed to  //DIV[contains(@class, 'view view-category-doa-product-name view-id-category_doa_product_name view-display-id-block view-dom-id')]/DIV[1]/DIV[1]/UL[1]/LI[1]/DIV[1]/SPAN[1]/A[1]

 

LipidPlus® Total Cholesterol Test Strips = //DIV[@class='view view-category-doa-product-name view-id-category_doa_product_name view-display-id-block view-dom-id-fd881446ade1c1be7a6cf9944e2c0c1e']/DIV[1]/DIV[1]/UL[1]/LI[1]/DIV[1]/SPAN[1]/A[1] and would be change to   //DIV[contains(@class, 'view view-category-doa-product-name view-id-category_doa_product_name view-display-id-block view-dom-id')]/DIV[1]/DIV[1]/UL[1]/LI[1]/DIV[1]/SPAN[1]/A[1]

The codes end up being the same so I am not able to get the information for this product LipidPlus® Total Cholesterol Test Strips and ca only get the information from The LipidPlus® Total Cholesterol and Glucose Measuring System.

 

How do I resolve that?

The Product 1 page area selects them all.

Hi,

I only customize the XPath. VWR will try to generate XPath for you but sometimes it is not perfect due to websites structure. There are a lot of XPath tutorial out there that you can try.

The //DIV[contains(@class, 'view view-footer-category-block view-id-footer_category_block view-display-id-block view-dom-id')] says caputure the DIV tag that contains 'view view-footer-category-block view-id-footer_category_block view-display-id-block view-dom-id' and so it will ignore the last string.

This is also true for http://jant.jantdx.com/categories/total-cholesterol-glucose-testing#collapse13 .

Hi,

I restructure your agent to correct format but I'm not sure if this is what you need.

Can you screen shot how you got that? I have another file that has the same issue and I am not understanding how to work around this issue.

Hi,

Try: 

//DIV[contains(@class, 'view view-footer-category-block view-id-footer_category_block view-display-id-block view-dom-id')]/DIV[1]/DIV[1]/UL[1]/LI/DIV/SPAN/A

What about product 2 called LipidPlus Test Strips and the 2 links under there and product 3 called LipidPlus Controls and the two products underneath there?  Those aren't linked and the coding is the same so I am not able to select those.   That's why I am confused.   Can you complete that part?
