Xpath select parent

I'm trying to use this rule to select the parent of a element and it keep crashing even the tutorials saying that is right.

<drop content="//input[@id='fisica']/parent::span" />


Is this possible?

edit: bad indentation code didn't displayed the snippet.


I never tried parent axis but child axis is working.


<drop content="//input[@id='fisica']" />

working? Just to be sure you select the input the correct way?

Maybe you can add a css class or id to the parent element - so you can select it that way? Or by index - like this //div[3]?

yes, just

<drop content="//input[@id='fisica']" />

is working.

Because the way the project is set up my wish is use the rules.xml and modify the other files only if there is no other way.
