Select data not visible on the page

You can use kimono's attribute extractor in advanced mode to select hidden data - elements in the DOM that are not visible on the webpage (and therefore not clickable within kimono's extractor view).

First inspect the DOM to view the HTML structure for the element you want to select. Next navigate to advanced mode by clicking on the data model view  and then on 'Advanced'.

 

 

From here, adjust the CSS selectors to extract the element you want. A great workaround to get you most of the way there with your CSS is to select an element close to the one you want on the page, then tweak the CSS selector. 

Next click on 'attributes':

And from here select 'hidden data':

click Apply, and then reopen the attributes extractor window again. You will be able to check which hidden attributes exactly you want extracted from your element.

You can spawn more data types by clicking the plus icon  on the toolbar.
