In Selenium, XPath Axes are node sets that define a relationship between nodes. They are used to find elements relative to the current node. Axes can be either a node or a set. An ancestor or child axis defines the node’s ancestors. The following example illustrates how these axes work.
How to know About XPath Axes in Selenium
When XPath processing occurs on a web page, it uses a context node to identify the current node. There are thirteen different axes available. In Selenium testing, you can use either one or none. A relative axis uses the reference element instead of the root element. It is possible to select the parent of an element using relative XPath axes.
A child axis selects the parent of the current node. A parent axis only contains one node. A child axis selects the parent node of the current node. The XPath axes can be used to specify the relationships between multiple nodes. The parent axis can be used to specify the relationship between two nodes. This can be useful for complex XPath processing.
An XPath axis can be used to find dynamic elements in a web page. It can be useful in Selenium testing, but it isn’t essential for the application. Nevertheless, you should familiarize yourself with XPath and HTML if you’re new to this technology. The following article explains the underlying concepts of XPath axes in Selenium.
