Abstract:This tutorial shows you how to loop the drop down box. No Programming Needed. Visual Operation. ScrapeStormFree Download

In the data scraping, we sometimes encounter webpages that need to set the drop-down box to get the data. At this point, we can set the loop drop-down box to scrape.

1. Select dropList once

If you need data under a certain condition in the dropList, you can directly click the drop-down option on the page, and then select the condition in the “Select dropList Once” on the operation box.

Then click the “Search” button on the page and select the “Click the Element” in the operation box.

Note: If the page can jump directly to the result page after checking the drop-down option, this step is not required.

2. Select options from multiple droplists

If you need to set a drop-down list with multiple conditions, you can set it as a single dropList.

3. Loop to select all the options of a single dropList

If you need to scrape data for all the conditions in a droplist, you can select the drop-down option on the page and then click “Select dropList in loops” on the operation box.

Then click the “Search” button on the page and select the “Click the Element” in the operation box.

Note: If the page can jump directly to the result page after checking the drop-down option, this step is not required.

4. Loop to select all the options of multiple dropLists

If you need to scrape data from all the conditions of multiple dropLists, you can set the multi-level loop according to the settings of a single loop.

5. Manually drag to set

In most cases, we don’t recommend that users manually drag and drop to set the drop-down component, because the user may misplace the component or set it incorrectly, causing the task to not work properly.
