Selenium Web DriverAutomation TestingSoftware Testing

There are multiple exceptions available in Selenium that are thrown whenever any unexpected situations occur or any of the methods yield error. BaseException is the class from where all the objects of Python are derived.

The exceptions that are generated by default are from the interpreter or the built in functions. The exceptions are generally created while we develop a new code and there is a good possibility of errors. Some of the exceptions of Selenium are listed below −

  • ElementNotVisibleException – This exception is generated when an element is available in DOM, but it is invisible. Hence no actions can be done on it.

  • ElementNotInteractableException - This exception is generated when an element is available in DOM. However, when performing action on it, another element is getting affected.

  • ElementClickInterceptedException - This exception is generated when an element click command could not be achieved. This is because the element which is receiving the event is hiding the element that requested the click operation.

  • ElementNotSelectableException - This exception is generated when an element which is unselectable is made an attempt to select

  • InsecureCertificateException - This exception is generated when a navigation is responsible to hit a certificate warning. This resulted in creating an expired and incorrect certificate of TLS.
