Locating child nodes in selenium WebDriver

0 votes

I am using Selenium WebDriver to automate my web application. I am able to find tags using By.xpath. 

But I find lots of child nodes within the main node.

Example:

<div id="id_1">
    <div>
        <span />
        <input />
    </div>
</div>

I tried the following:

WebElement div1 = driver.findElement( By.xpath( "//div[@id='id_1']" ) )

But I want to find the input, then I tried the following:

driver.findElement(By.xpath( "//div[@id='id_1']//input" ) )

Now I only have div1 and not having its XPath. I want to do the following:

WebElement findInput = driver.findElement(div1, By.xpath("//input"));

But I can see that no such method exists. How to solve this issue?
