Hi RAJMAS001,

Thankyou for sharing your query.

You can use the loop command to loop number of times and pass the value 10. Inside the loop to get the first 10 items, you can use Get Text command and make the dynamic selectors which would include variables and wildcards in the xpath to extract elements dynamically.

Sample Dynamic selector for Xpath - "/html/body/div[5]/div[5]/div[2]/div/div[2]/ul/li["+var+"]/div/div[2]/div[3]"

Hi

How do we extract the first 10 items details from an amazon or ebay search?

Thanks

Hi Nived, In order to extract data from a website you can use two different methods

  1. Web Element Recorder - it will record the actions you perform on a website and generate a sequence of commands. Then, you can modify/add commands as needed. You can find demo videos on the OpenBots youtube channel: OpenBots ai - YouTube
  2. Web Browser Commands - use the Element Action commands to perform actions such as: Get Text, Get Table, Get Attributes and more. Please, find documentation on web browser commands on the following link: https://openbots.ai/product/openbots-studio/how-to-guide-for-openbots-studio/

Hope this helps!
