  • Dealing with dynamic dropdowns with CasperJS

    In my experiment with CasperJS to extract the data from an aspx page, I faced some issues with dynamic drop-down. What happened is that there can be 2-3 dropdowns box that depend on each other e.g. User selects a category in dropdown1 , an AJAX request is triggered to create and populate sub-categories in dropdown2.
