How to create a Javascript executor for making an element visible in Selenium Webdriver?

SeleniumAutomation TestingTesting Tools

We can create a JavaScript Executor for making an element visible in Selenium webdriver. A hidden element has a style attribute whose value set to display: none.

For making an element visible on the page we have set the value of style attribute to block/ inline/ flex/ inline-block. Let us see the html code of an element which is visible(style= display: block) −

Now on clicking the Hide button, the Hide/Show Example edit box becomes invisible on the page. Let us now see the html code of the Hide/Show Example edit box in hidden state(style= display: none) −

JavaScript Executor can make the same element visible on the page. Selenium executes JavaScript commands with the help of the executeScript method.

JavaScript command to be executed is passed as a parameter to this method.

First we shall identify the element with the help of document.getElementById method and set the style.display attribute as 'block'. This shall be passed as a parameter to executeScript method.

Syntax

JavascriptExecutor j = (JavascriptExecutor)driver;
j.executeScript("document.getElementById('displayed-text').style.display='block';");

Example

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
import org.openqa.selenium.JavascriptExecutor;
public class MakeElementVisible{
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver",
         "C:\\Users\\ghs6kor\\Desktop\\Java\\chromedriver.exe");
      WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
      //implicit wait
      driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(5, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
      //launch URL
      driver.get("https://learn.letskodeit.com/p/practice");
      WebElement l = driver.findElement(By.id("displayed-text"));
      // Javascript Executor to make hidden element visible
      JavascriptExecutor j = (JavascriptExecutor) driver;
      j.executeScript("document.getElementById('displayed-text').style.display='block';");
      //verify element is visible
      boolean b = l.isDisplayed();
      if(b){
         System.out.println("Element is visible");
      }else{
         System.out.println("Element is not visible");
      }
      driver.quit();
   }
}

Output
