How to perform mouseover action on an element in Selenium?

Software TestingAutomation TestingSelenium Web Driver

We can perform mouseover action on elements in Selenium with the help of Actions class. In order to perform the mouse movement we will use moveToElement () method of the Actions class. Finally use build().perform() to execute all the steps.

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 org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Action;
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Actions;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
public class MouseOver{
   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/questions/index.php";
      driver.get(url);
      driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(12, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
      // actions class with moveToElement() method for mouse hover to element
      Actions a = new Actions(driver);
      a.moveToElement(driver.findElement(By.xpath(“input[@type=’text’]))).
      build().perform();
      driver.quit();
   }
}
