Can i use openRpa for scraping from a chrome extension
I use openRpa for scraping from a website. I am using Chrome.
I need to scrape also from a chrome extension that will work on that website.
I tried to do this both with get elements for Windows and Chrome but i couldn't get the variables.

No, sorry. The openrpa extension does not have permission to do that.
Using windows get element does not work by default, but you could play around with enabling accessibility in chrome by starting it with the following command-line parameter:
Thank you for your reply.
And also thank you for creating this amazing software.
Let me explain my problem more.
My chrome extension gives more data about a product in Amazon.
When i enable it, it shows more data embedded in the web page.
Here is the form that is shows. I am able to press this blue button with OpenRpa.
After the button is pressed, i can see the estimated monthly sales value like this. I want to get this value.
I tried to get this value with both get elements for Windows and Chrome but i couldn't get it.
I am new in OpenRpa (using for 3 days) and i think if i can get more help, i can get this value.
When i try it with get elements for Windows, i can get the value for the product. But when i open another product, i can't get it.
As you can see from the screenshot, i get the item.name and name value change when i open another product, so i can't get the value. I couldn't get the value by using another value rather than item.name because there is no other variable.
When i try it with get elements for Chrome, i can't find the right div parameter, so i can't get the value.
I try to do it but i don't know how to configure selector yet.
When i press select button, it selects the complete container and i can't get the value. I add another get element inside the first one, but i still can't get it.
