Just your typical software testing Sci-fi geek. (if there is such a thing. Been working with computers since the mid 74's, and doing so professionally since the early 80's It's been a long journey from the days of acoustically coupled modems, teletypes, and programs stored on punch-tape

Interests are: Agile Testing; BDD/ATDD; performance and load testing; Webtest UI automation via Watir and Cucumber; Virtualization of testbed systems using Hyper-V.

Also a bit of a hardware geek, building all my own systems other than laptops and tablets, as well as the occasional floating-arm trebuchet enter image description here when I feel the need to have fun sieging the castle or flinging a pumpkin or two.

comment Selecting images inside nested tables using Watir
If you add some debugging code in there such as puts "the number of links is: #{links.size}" it might help to see what is going on. The other thing is if these expand links are being created on the fly, you might want a little sleep, like a half second or so, right before the end of the while loop to give the client side code some time to render the links or turn them visible

comment How to access the <body> tags using watir
what version of the watir gems are you using? from command line type gem list and include the results for any gem with watir in the name. Your primary problem is that the thing you want is inside a frame (maybe even nested frames, hard to tell without being able to access the site directly) but the exact syntax for addressing frames depends on the version of watir being used, and if it is watir-classic or watir-webdriver. You included both tags in your question so it is hard for us to know unless you tell us those details

comment How to access the <body> tags using watir
He is requiring watir yes, but that is a wrapper around watir-classic and watir-webdriver, so without seeing how he creates the new browser object, hard to know for sure which is in effect. But the error would tend to point to using classic

comment How to fetch text from parsed html
It would really help if we had a better idea of exactly what you were trying to accomplish when you say extracting text are you looking for specific text are you looking to see if specific text is inside a given element what is it that you're trying to accomplish via extracting text from the page

comment Write clickable xpath for entire text in different "span" tags but under one "p" tag
I think you need to be more clear as to what you want to accomplish. Is there more than one div with "configure" for the class? Is there more than one link with "student" as part of its class? Is the text in the spans of the paragraph sibling of the link important or part of the criteria for finding the right link to click? Does that text appear next to other links that do not have class student?

comment Why is that return document.getElementsByClassName is working and getElementbyId is not in Watir?
The reason for this is that as defined in the standard, valid html will only have a single element within a page with a given id value. Hence the method is named in the singular and returns one element.

comment Getting a style value for an element using watir
Well you could use .tds to get all the rows that match that class, then iterate an find the ones with the style you want. Or use .elements and select by css to get a collection of the ones that match. See jkotests.wordpress.com/2012/08/28/… for more on selecting that way.
