In Selenium 2.0, I have no idea how to traverse through an HTML table on a webpage. In selenium2.0 Javadoc, I found two classes "TableFinder" and "TableCellFinder", but I couldn't find any examples.

I want to do something like this:

RowCount=Get how many rows are there in the HTML table

for each row of the table


   column_count=Get column count

   for each column



      Do something with cell_value



How can I get the text from each of the table cells?

Here's a solution using selenium 2.0 classes.

import java.util.List;

import org.openqa.selenium.By;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;

import org.openqa.selenium.ie.InternetExplorerDriver;

public class WebTableExample 


    public static void main(String[] args) 


        WebDriver driver = new InternetExplorerDriver();


        WebElement table_element = driver.findElement(By.id("testTable"));

        List<WebElement> tr_collection=table_element.findElements(By.xpath("id('testTable')/tbody/tr"));

        System.out.println("NUMBER OF ROWS IN THIS TABLE = "+tr_collection.size());

        int row_num,col_num;


        for(WebElement trElement : tr_collection)


            List<WebElement> td_collection=trElement.findElements(By.xpath("td"));

            System.out.println("NUMBER OF COLUMNS="+td_collection.size());


            for(WebElement tdElement : td_collection)


                System.out.println("row # "+row_num+", col # "+col_num+ "text="+tdElement.getText());
