Finding a string on a javascript based website and innitiate click RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to find a picture on a javascript based website and click on it. Below you can see the code I have tried, but always getting error, the website can only be opened via Internet Explorer, no other browser will display it properly. What should I change or how should I approach that clicking on the button would open the website, find the picture and initiate a click on it?

    private void Button3_Click_1(object sender, EventArgs e)
            {
                var options = new PhantomJSOptions();
                options.AddAdditionalCapability("IsJavaScriptEnabled", true);
                //System.setProperty("webdriver.ie.driver");
                IWebDriver driver = new InternetExplorerDriver();
                //IWebDriver driver = new PhantomJSDriver("phantomjs Folder Path", options);
                //IWebDriver driver = ($"c:\\Users\\kocsism\\Documents\\phantomjs-2.1.1-windows\\phantomjs-2.1.1-windows\\bin\\", options);
                driver.Navigate().GoToUrl("url");

                try
                {
                    string pagesource = driver.PageSource;
                    //driver.FindElement(By.Id("New Incident..."));
                    //driver.FindElement(By.LinkText("New Incident..."));
                    driver.FindElement(By.Name("new_incident_16.png"));
                    Console.Write("your element has been found");
                }
                catch (Exception some_exception)
                {
                    Console.WriteLine(some_exception.Message);
                }
                Console.Read();
            }
