@Lakshman,

if you are using version 1.5.0 or higher, you need to format the xpath as a string (we use c# language inline). In this case, you would indicate it as: �//*[@id='session_key']�.

Hi Usman I'm trying as you said but this exception comes. This is my xpath "//*[@id="session_key"]".

Exception Type: ElementNotVisibleException Exception Message: Unable to find element within the provided time limit

Hi, Try the syntax with your XPath "//*[@id="yourId"]".
