DevTools Tips

Copy an element's XPath expression

You can easily copy an element's XPath expression from DevTools. This is useful if you need this expression for an automated test for example.

  • Go to the Elements (or Inspector) panel
  • Use the context-menu (right-click) on the element you care about
  • Go into the Copy sub-menu
  • Choose the Xpath option

Note that you can then use this xpath expression to find elements again in DevTools.
