For this example, "nike bag" was searched in eBay. The goal of this sample is to retrieve the first product's name by using Find Children activity.

  1. Create a List<RAXUIAutomationElement> variable called children.
  2. Add a Find Children activity, and in the Found Children field under Properties, add children.
  3. Click Select Element On Screen and select the first product in the search results. 
  4. In the Filter field under Properties, add "h3.lvtitle" inside the two single quotation marks. This is to specifically get the product's name only.
  5. Create a String variable called text.
  6. Add a Get Text activity, and in the Output field under Properties, add text.
  7. In the Element field in the Properties, write "children(0)". This is to get the first instance of the output of Find Children.
  8. Add a Write Line activity, and in the Text field, write text.


            The use case should look as the following screenshot:

This should be the result in the Output panel:
