Table has Table Rows and Table Data.

You can first get <table> element and get all rows by

WebElement tableElement =  driver.findElement(By.id("Your selector here"));

List<WebElement> rows = tableElement.findElement(By.tagName("tr"));

List<WebElement> rowData = rows.get(0).findElement(By.tagName("td")); //getting table data of the first row.


Hope above sudo code helps.

int hCount = ObjectRepository.Driver.FindElement(By.XPath("//div[@data-widget='widgets.livetable']")).Size.Height;
            int wCount = ObjectRepository.Driver.FindElement(By.XPath("//div[@data-widget='widgets.livetable']")).Size.Width;

But if structure of html is not good what I will get ? I must check structure of html of table is someone forgot tr or td ... ?

Usually browsers like chrome and firefox will take care of this. In case of you want to check HTML structure, you will have to first get HTML source using

String html = driver.getPageSource();

HtmlDocument doc = new HtmlDocument();


if (doc.ParseErrors.Count() > 0)
   //Invalid HTML
