How to get number of rows from table?

Hello to all,

May be someone could help me with this:

I want to get the number of rows of the nested table from a simple HTML table in code shown below.

When I run it locally in my machine save it the code as file.html or in this link https://jsfiddle.net/wyzpbdhL/ and I run the following Javascript code on Chrome console, I get correctly the number of rows (3 in this case).

function getElementByXpath(path) {
   return document.evaluate(path, document, null, XPathResult.FIRST_ORDERED_NODE_TYPE, null).singleNodeValue; 
}
getElementByXpath("//*[@id='main']/table[2]/tbody").rows.length;

Now I go to Kantu and running the same javascript code like this:

executeScript_Sandbox | function getElementByXpath(path) { ...} var r=getElementByXpath("//*[@id='main']/table[2]/tbody").rows.length; return r; | x
echo                  |	${x}	|   

I get this error:

[error] Error in executeScript_Sandbox code: Cannot read property 'rows' of null

What is missing in my code?

The HTML code is:

	<table border = 1 bgcolor="#FFE83A">
		<tbody>
			<tr>
				<td id = "main">
					<table id = "table_x">...</table>
					<div>...</div>
					<iframe src="javascript:false;" id="iframe_x" name="iframe_x" style="display:none" height="0" width="0" filterlink="?"></iframe> 
					<table class="table2_class" summary="MySummary" border = 1 bgcolor="#38FF66">
						<thead>...</thead>
						<tbody>
							<tr class="a1" >
								<td class="td_class">1</td>
								<td class="td_class">N</td>
								<td class="td_class_1">
									<div dir="" class="zzz">
										<div class="div_class">
											<a href="...">Some text</a>
										</div>
									</div>
								</td>
							</tr>
							<tr class="b1" >
								<td class="td_class">4</td>
								<td class="td_class">W</td>
								<td class="td_class_1">
									<div dir="" class="zzz">
										<div class="div_class">
											<a href="...">Some text</a>
										</div>
									</div>
								</td>
							</tr>   
							<tr class="a1" >
								<td class="td_class">7</td>
								<td class="td_class">R</td>
								<td class="td_class_1">
									<div dir="" class="zzz">
										<div class="div_class">
											<a href="...">Some text</a>
										</div>
									</div>
								</td>
							</tr>       
					</tbody>
				</table>
				</td>
			</tr>
		</tbody>            
	</table>

Thanks in advance.

I see you are using executeScript_Sandbox which has no access to the web page. You need to use executeScript, then it should work.

Hi Timo,

Thanks so much for your answer. Changing to executeScript it works.

In practice I learned about that “little detail” about of executeScript_Sandbox doesn’t have access to the web page hehe.
