363. Using [attribute] to select all the element containing the specified attribute







We can locate the elements which contain attributes like id and class by using [attribute] in CSS path.

Example:

[id]  -> Locates all the elements containing the id attribute
p[id] -> Locates all the paragraph elements containing the id attribute
[class]  -> Locates all the elements containing the class attribute
p[class]  -> Locates all the paragraph elements containing the class attribute

Lets Implement This:

Locate all the elements on the http://compendiumdev.co.uk/selenium/basic_web_page.html containing the id attribute by following the below steps:

1. Open http://compendiumdev.co.uk/selenium/basic_web_page.html in Firefox Browser
2. Click on the 'Firepath' tab, select the CSS option, enter the CSS path [id] into the text box as shown below and click on 'Eval' button:



3. Observe that all the elements containing the id attribute got highlighted on the page as shown below:



Now lets locate all the paragraph elements on the http://compendiumdev.co.uk/selenium/basic_web_page.html containing the id attribute by following the below steps:

1. Open http://compendiumdev.co.uk/selenium/basic_web_page.html in Firefox Browser
2. Click on the 'Firepath' tab, select the CSS option, enter the CSS path p[id] into the text box as shown below and click on 'Eval' button:



3. Observe that all the paragraph elements containing the id attribute got highlighted on the page as shown below:



Now lets locate all the elements on the http://compendiumdev.co.uk/selenium/basic_web_page.html containing the class attribute by following the below steps:

1. Open http://compendiumdev.co.uk/selenium/basic_web_page.html in Firefox Browser
2. Click on the 'Firepath' tab, select the CSS option, enter the CSS path [class] into the text box as shown below and click on 'Eval' button:


3. Observe that all the elements containing the class attribute got highlighted on the page as shown below:


Now lets locate all the paragraph elements on the http://compendiumdev.co.uk/selenium/basic_web_page.html containing the class attribute by following the below steps:

1. Open http://compendiumdev.co.uk/selenium/basic_web_page.html in Firefox Browser
2. Click on the 'Firepath' tab, select the CSS option, enter the CSS path p[class] into the text box as shown below and click on 'Eval' button:
