Element id’s with “#” pound sign and “\” backslash on Graphene 2

Posted: March 15, 2013 in web


HTML code

<div id="#quote-form\:filter_panel"></div>

First Option selector (using css post fix ($))

@FindBy(css = “div[id$=’filter_panel’]”)
private WebElement we;

NOTE: the above will work because graphene is using CSS3. It will NOT work using By.cssSelector from selenium cause its using CSS2.
Second Option selector (using xpath)

@FindBy(xpath = “//*[@id=\”#quote-form\\:filter_panel\”]”)
private WebElement we;


String xpath = “//*[@id=\”#quote-form\\:filter_panel\”]”
WebElement we = root.findElement(By.xpath(xpath));
