How to click on a hyper link using linkText in Selenium?

SeleniumAutomation TestingTesting Tools

A hyperlink on a page is identified with the anchor tag. To click a link, we can use the link text locator which matches the text enclosed within the anchor tag.

We can also use the partial link text locator which matches the text enclosed within the anchor tag partially. NoSuchElementException is thrown if there is no matching element found by both these locators.

Syntax

WebElement t =driver.findElement(By.partialLinkText("Refund"));
WebElement m =driver.findElement(By.linkText("Refund Policy"));

Let us make an attempt to click a link Refund Policy on the below page −

Example

Code Implementation with linkText

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
public class LnkClick{
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      System.setProperty("webdriver.gecko.driver",
"C:\\Users\\ghs6kor\\Desktop\\Java\\geckodriver.exe");
      WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();
      //implicit wait
      driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(5, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
      //URL launch
      driver.get("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/about/about_careers.htm");
      // identify element with link text
      WebElement m =driver.findElement(By.linkText("Refund Policy"));
      m.click();
      System.out.println("Page navigated: " + driver.getTitle());
      driver.quit();
   }
}

Code Implementation with partialLinkText

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
public class PartialLnkClick{
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      System.setProperty("webdriver.gecko.driver",
"C:\\Users\\ghs6kor\\Desktop\\Java\\geckodriver.exe");
      WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();
      //implicit wait
      driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(5, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
      //URL launch
      driver.get("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/about/about_careers.htm");
      // identify element with partial link text
      WebElement p =driver.findElement(By.partialLinkText("Refund"));
      p.click();
      System.out.println("Page navigated: " + driver.getTitle());
      driver.quit();
   }
}
