Software TestingAutomation TestingSelenium Web DriverJavascript

We can get the value of the edit box in Selenium by the following ways −

  • By using getText () method.

  • Using the class JavascriptExecutor.

Code Implementation with method getText ().

Example

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.Keys;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
public class GetValueScripting {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "C:\\Users\\ghs6kor\\Desktop\\Java\\chromedriver.exe");
      WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
      String url = "https://www.tutorialspoint.com/index.htm";
      driver.get(url);
      driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(12, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
      String text = driver.findElement(By.className("gsc-input")).getText();
      System.out.println("Extracted text is " + text);
      driver.close();
   }
}

Code Implementation with class JavascriptExecutor.

Example

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.Keys;
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 ExtractValueScripting {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "C:\\Users\\ghs6kor\\Desktop\\Java\\chromedriver.exe");
      WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
      String url = "https://www.tutorialspoint.com/index.htm";
      driver.get(url);
      driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(12, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
      // create Javascript object
      JavascriptExecutor js = (JavascriptExecutor)driver;
      // Issue command to extract the text
      String text = js.executeScript("return document.getElementById(' gsc-i-id1').value").toString();
      System.out.println("Extracted text is" + text);
      driver.close();
   }
}
