Hi ALL,

I am trying to pull all the values within the 2 separate divs.

One will display live game and displays coming up games.

Below are the div with there classes:

LIVE:
<div class="match event-information ui-inplay ui-has-score ui-event ui-27144806 ui-market ui-924_8120118 ui-inplay ui-no-status-message" data-eventId="27144806" data-marketId="924.8120118">

Open in new window


Coming up:
<div class="match event-information ui-has-score ui-event ui-27144699 ui-market ui-924_8109014 ui-no-status-message" data-eventId="27144699" data-marketId="924.8109014">

Open in new window


the only difference is those games that are live have the text have ui-inplay so due to this i am trying to use the below to pull the different divs-

.//div[contains(@class, 'match event-information ui-inplay ui-has-score']" - to find the live scores and
.//div[contains(@class, 'match event-information ui-has-score']" - to find upand coming scores



issue is i get the errorSystem.Xml.XPath.XPathException: './/div[contains(@class, 'match event-information ui-inplay ui-has-score']' has an invalid token.

i presume its due to the - how can a fix this?

You are missing a right parenthesis for the "contains" method.
