What is IFrame?
An IFrame (Inline Frame) is an HTML code embedded inside another HTML document on a website. It is used to insert content from another source, for example, an advertisement. An Inline Frame is specified by the <iframe> tag.
How to scrape from an IFrame with Octoparse?
Octoparse built-in browser can recognize IFrame automatically, so you just need to select the information which is in the IFrame and choose to extract it from the Action Tips like what you do when scraping pages without IFrame.
Octoparse locates the items in IFrame with the combination of IFrame Xpath and Matching XPath. If you need to modify the XPath of a data field, please note that you may need to modify both the IFrame XPath and Matching XPath.(Check how to modify XPath here )
