I am testing my Android application using Appium framework. I have an android screen that doesn\'t have ids for its views (and I don\'t want to add...), so I thought using Xpath

    Right now there's a couple nasty bugs with XPath on android that explain the behaviors you're seeing. They are scheduled to be fixed in the 1.3.1 release

    1. You can't search by root nodes.. link
      • Unfortunately, this means that a verbose xpath is likely the xpath(pun) to success
    2. You sometimes get 240 of an element when you only have 16 link

    Ideally, you could look for the resource-id of the android.widget.LinearLayout parent of all 16 RelativeLayouts and then do something like:


    Your verbose solution did not work because you gave one of the layouts a position of [2].

    Here it is, fixed:


    .... please, please use the first solution.

    I'm looking into a solution for your problem using UiAutomator locator strategy, but no answers yet (because .fromChild() and .fromParent() seem to be broken)

    Just try this u can access easily

    driver.findElement(By.xpath("//*[@class='android.widget.FrameLayout' and @bounds='[418,564][780,885]']")).click();

    The following code worked for me:

    WebElement webElement = driver.findElementByXPath("//android.widget.ListView[1]/android.widget.LinearLayout[1]");

    Keeping in mind the fact that //foo[1] returns all foo nodes which are the first children of a their parent (not the first child of the foo node) try something like this:


    Not tested, but it should give you all the RelativeLayouts which are a child of a LinearLayout which is a child of a LinearLayout which is the second child of a LinearLayout which is the child of a ScrollView.
