Button click does not trigger data refresh

Hi everyone, I am very new to Playwright and Python. I am trying to scrape data from the website below.

I am able to change the month and year selection (to Jan 2020 then Feb 2020 for example), but clicking the Done button just hides the date picker without triggering a data refresh. Appreciate some guidance as I have been stuck on this problem for days. Thanks in advance.

from playwright.sync_api import Playwright, sync_playwright from bs4 import BeautifulSoup import time

url = 'https://www.bdo.com.ph/personal/navpu-history/bdo-equity-fund?code=BDO-EQUITY'

def run(playwright: Playwright) -> None: with playwright.chromium.launch(headless=False) as browser: page = browser.new_page() page.goto(url)

months = ['0', '1']
    year = '2020'

    for month in months:
        page.select_option('.ui-datepicker-month', month)
        # page.evaluate("document.querySelector('.ui-datepicker-month').onchange()")
        # page.evaluate("document.querySelector('.ui-datepicker-month').onclick()")
        # page.dispatch_event('.ui-datepicker-month', 'change')
        # page.dispatch_event('.ui-datepicker-month', 'click')
        page.select_option('.ui-datepicker-year', year)
        # page.dispatch_event('.ui-datepicker-year', 'change')
        # page.dispatch_event('.ui-datepicker-year', 'click')
        # page.evaluate("document.querySelector('.ui-datepicker-year').onchange()")
        # page.evaluate("document.querySelector('.ui-datepicker-year').onclick()")
        # page.evaluate("document.querySelector('.ui-datepicker-close').click()")
        # page.dispatch_event('.ui-datepicker-close', 'click')

with sync_playwright() as playwright: run(playwright)

This thread is trying to answer question "How to trigger data refresh after clicking the 'Done' button using Playwright and Python?"

Calling click() on page is deprecated, you need to use a locator and call click on that locator


Also don't use wait_for_selector, it's deprecated. Use locators instead: https://playwright.dev/python/docs/api/class-page#page-wait-for-selector
