This auxiliary selector cannot be used as a standalone selector, or as the first step of the parsing pipeline.

It restricts the area on the page where the data to be extracted is located. Unlike the Boundary selector, the restriction will be applied depending on the objects returned by the preceding selector.

For instance, if the Relative boundary selector is added after the Boundary selector to extract the value: $624


 

You can select one of four options for the selector:

  1. Left
    Defines the area to the left from the input object and between its top and bottom borders 

    Input:  $624 
    Output: 1 DocTech123 Standard Pro License (1 year)

  2. Right
    Defines the area to the right from the input object and between its top and bottom borders  


    Input:  $624 
    Output: $624

  3. Above
    Defines the area above the input object and between its left and right borders

  4. Below
    Defines the area above the input object and between its left and right borders
