So I’m trying to get my code to click the button in red in the image above, but no matter what I try selenium returns a NoSuchElementException. How would you go at doing this? Cause I can’t figure it out.
Here’s my code if you’re interested:
from selenium import webdriver from selenium.webdriver.common.by import By from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys import time # Set up driver and remove weird error message that doesn't matter options = webdriver.ChromeOptions() options.add_experimental_option('excludeSwitches', ['enable-logging']) driver = webdriver.Chrome(options=options) # Get the webpage to interact with driver.get('https://maps.google.com') # Find search box and type into it to_des = driver.find_element(By.ID, "searchboxinput").send_keys('McHenry Library') enter = driver.find_element(By.ID, "searchboxinput").send_keys(Keys.ENTER) directions = driver.find_element(By.XPATH, '//*[@id="QA0Szd"]/div/div/div/div/div/div/div/div/div/div/button').click() walking = driver.find_element(By.XPATH, '//*[@id="omnibox-directions"]/div/div/div/div/div/div/button').click() from_des = driver.find_element(By.CLASS_NAME, 'tactile-searchbox-input').send_keys('Oakes College')
You can click on the
Direction text using xpath:
If you want to click the Direction icon then, you can try with following Xpath:
If neither of these work, add step to check if the pane is open before clicking "Direction". It is possible that the pane is taking some time to open, and thus the element was not found.
