How can I select a particular node within the XPath node sets by index

0 votes

I use the below XPath to locate all 'Modify' buttons inside my data table.

//img[@title='Modify']

But, if there are more than one element, then how will I select one of them? I've tried the below but neither work:

//img[@title='Modify'][i]

and

//img[@title='Modify' and position() = i]

I have also tried XPath checker which is firefox extension. There are totally 13 matches found, but I have no idea how to select one of them...

There is no concept of 'i' in XPath. But you can actually use a number to select a particular 'nth' 'Modify' element in your page. This is how its done:

//img[@title='Modify'][1]

or

//img[@title='Modify'][nth-no-of-element]
