get hidden text with webdriver


Go to solution Solved by mLipok,

Recommended Posts

Hello,
when I load a website with hidden text elements and try to retrieve the HTML code, I never get the hidden text.
When I do an investigation in Firefox I see the text inside but when I go to the same page with Webdriver and try to fetch the text, the code is not inside.
What does this mean and how can I call it anyway?
$sSource = _WD_GetSource($sSession)
$bElements = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//div[@class='print-footer hidden-screen-only']", Default, True)
