Iterate on Email button


I would like to create one script which iterate on every mail button on this page.

There are a random Email button according to the research page like that :

and i would like to iterate on each “Email” Button :

Can someone help me please ?

Does clicking an “E-Mail” button redirect the user? (Does it cause the page to reload?)

Yes of course.
In the new page
But for the moment, i just would like to count how many Email button i have and click on the first “Email” Button on this research page, the second, the third …etc

for me, it’s very very complicated not like with UFT

Right, but the redirects matter, that’s why I ask.

Let’s say you build a list of the button elements currently on the page:

WebDriver driver = DriverFactory.getWebDriver()
List<WebElement> buttons = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//a[@title='E-Mail']"))

Then you decide to click on the first one:


Your list will become “stale”, because a redirect wipes out the DOM, and repopulates it. So to avoid this, you will also need to re-grab the list after each iteration:

WebDriver driver = DriverFactory.getWebDriver()
List<WebElement> buttons = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//a[@title='E-Mail']"))
for(WebElement button : buttons) {
    // Code to wait for page to load...
    // Code to navigate back to the "research page", if any?
    buttons = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//a[@title='E-Mail']"))

I have this error :

You need to import the relevant classes, as always.

Press ctrl + shift + o on your keyboard.

Thanks u very much.

These are separate questions that deserve separate topics.
