How to work with WebDriver on a page when the HTML is not on Client Side.

Nowadays, mostly sites does not leave HTML on client side.
Hence WebDriver could not identity the elements, ultimately does not  able to run the tests.  (Web Page is not of FLASH)

Please suggest a way to rectify this issue. Am not able to create selenium scripts.

    @Lokeshima you can automate it like a normal site using Selenium WebDriver. There is nothing special about the elements of this site. Any specific element you want us to take a look at?

    Hi Virender,

    I just wanted to know, how to automate those site whose HTML  is not accessible.
    Now in these days there are lots of ” .js ” or framework exist,  which gives us the facility to not leave the HTML/CSS on the client side.

    Yes, I have a project to work on, but unfortunately can’t share since it is company’s confidential.
    And yes, I have also tried to locate the elements using most of the possible locators.

    If I wont find it in webdriver, then most probably I’ll be working Webdriver+SikuliX.

    Hope to get help ! from your side.
