Sometimes you need to place your mouse over a designated area on the web page before accessing the data you want. In this tutorial, we will show you how to extract data that appears on hover in Octoparse.


1) Click on the designated area on the web page loaded in the built-in browser


2) Select "Hover on the selected element" from Action Tips


A Cursor Over action would be generated in the workflow. Octoparse would automatically set up 5-second AJAX Timeout for the action, so you have no need to worry about dealing with AJAX .
