I am looking for help in searching for and finding the number in the datagridview on the web page and finding the line number where the number is located.

What I have tried:

driver.Navigate().GoToUrl("my link");
WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(drv, TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10));
IWebElement gridElement = wait.Until(driver => driver.FindElement(By.Id(val0))); // changed variable name here
IWebElement studentNumberElement = drv.FindElement(By.XPath("//td[contains(text(), 'val0')]"));
IWebElement imageLink = studentNumberElement.FindElement(By.XPath("/html/body/form[2]/div[4]/div[1]/div[4]/div/div/div[2]/div/div["+(i+1)+"]/div/div[2]/h6"));

Not enough information to identify what you are using, the page that you are scraping, and why. We can not see your screen! FWIW, I prefer Playwright.

Your selector looks far too specific. Open the page in a web browser dev tools and have a closer look.

Even poorly designed websites have a structure to them. Are there no other identifiers that you can search for? Like an 'id' or class name(s)?
