    <div class="jsdomenuitem"................................ //parent
       Text - Aggregations
       <div class = "jsdomenuarrow" id = "menuitem209arrow"  //child


    I'm able to find the parent using Innertext property, by getting this i want to click the child. Child doesnt contain any innertext 
    I'm able to find the child by using id=menuitem209arrow but there are many cases like this, so instead of finding the child directly, i want to find Parent  and they perform actions on child.

    How to get the child by finding the parent?

    Hi Sudarshan,

    You can use the ChildNodes collection which contains all children of a parent element.

    I created a simple application to demonstrate it:


    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <div class="jsdomenuitem">
        <div id="menuitem209arrow">


    HtmlDiv parrent = ActiveBrowser.Find.ByContent<HtmlDiv>("Aggregations");
    Element child = parrent.ChildNodes[1];
    HtmlDiv ch = child.As<HtmlDiv>();

    I recorded a short video as a demonstration.

    Hope this helps.

    Kind regards,
