I have the following HTML
<div class="detailSection"> <span>Authorized Person(s) Detail</span> <span> <b>Name & Address</b> </span> <br> <br> <span>Title MGR</span> <br> <br> " EYN, KHASHY " <span> <div> 100 Wall Street<br> NEW YORK, NY 10005<br> </div> </span> <br> </div>
I would like to extract the EYN, KHASHY portion of the HTML. My Chrome developer tools tells me this is a #text node(?) and I think that is why it is not working with my current code. Although I am not familiar with #text nodes at all but it seems distinct from the HTML.
Currently my code selects all children elements of the
<div> which is parent to the #text. As follows:
persons = driver.find_element_by_xpath('//*[@id="maincontent"]/div/div') all_children = persons.find_elements_by_xpath(".//*") for child in all_children: li_person.append(child.text) print(child.text)
This gives me all the text except the EYN, KHASHY. Probably because all other text is part of a certain element as Chrome dev tools tell me when I hover over. The #text "EYN, KHASHY" returns as blank.
How can I select this node and extract this information?
