GoogleMap crawling issue

Submitted: 12/21/2015
Hi team, 

Whenever I want to extract data from Google Map, Visual Web Ripper seems does not allow me to do so. 

Suppose that it will show me the page area so that I can select I want to crawl (as shown in img1.png). However, when I want to crawl Google Maps, the page area does not shows up (as shown in img2.png).

I don't seem to be able to repeat your problem , but the 'Detail' form submit template doesn't work for me, I changed to 'link' type and unchecked 'inject standard javascript overrides..' option in Project > Project options > Javascript tab, then everything seems to work fine at run-time, I haven't seen any warnings / errors so far.

Please chech the attached new project.

Hi Support,

I tried to add a Back template to navigate back to the listing page but it failed to continue to the next page area.
Please kindly help.

Here is the log:

It works. Thank you. May I know what have you did exactly to make it happen? I need it so that I can do the same thing for my other project.

Thank you

Please check the attached new project.

I've revised xpath for page area template & page navigation template, hope that 's what you want.

I only manually revised xpath by tree view tool, that could be more better if you can't select elements automatically.

I noticed that you have used Element to capture the content. What I want is, to use PageArea to capture the content. But when I want to use PageArea to capture the content, VWR does not allow me to do so. 

Thank you

The company list show me properly at right hand side on page, see the attached screenshot.

I'm guessing that it could be a local network issue at your side, or you should disable antivirus software which might affect VWR.
