Help using EVAL and document.getElementsByClassName

by alex1231 on Sat Aug 27, 2016 7:33 am


I am trying to get the value of an element by its class name.

I can get the correct value with javascript:
Code: Select all

Code: Select all
javascript:var a=eval(document.getElementsByClassName('xx-large')[1].innerHTML); alert(a);

But for some reason I can't get it to work properly in iMacros.

I tried
Code: Select all
SET !VAR1 EVAL("var a=document.getElementsByClassName(\\'xx-large\\')[1].innerHTML; a;");

and every other workaround that I could think of, but I just can't seem to get it right. Could you please help me?
I'd like to be able to get it into a variable because I would like to write the values to a .csv file afterwards.

Thanks a lot, it would really help.
