How to perform scrolling action on page in Selenium?

Software TestingAutomation TestingSelenium Web Driver

We can perform the following actions with respect to scrolling in Selenium −

Vertical scrolling

The scrolling down to a specific pixel.

JavascriptExecutor j = (JavascriptExecutor) driver;
// scroll down by 1500 pixel with coordinates 0 and 1500 in x, y axes
j.executeScript("window.scrollBy(0,1500)");

The scrolling down to the bottom of the page.

JavascriptExecutor j = (JavascriptExecutor) driver;
// scroll down the bottom of page
js.executeScript("window.scrollTo(0, document.body.scrollHeight)");

Example

For vertical scroll down till the element is visible.

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 ScrollDownVisible {
   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);
      JavascriptExecutor js = (JavascriptExecutor) driver;
      WebElement terms = driver.findElement(By.linkText("Terms of use”));
      // scroll down the web element for viewing
      js.executeScript("arguments[0].scrollIntoView();",terms);
      driver.close();
   }
}

      WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
      String url = "https://www.tutorialspoint.com/index.htm";

      JavascriptExecutor js = (JavascriptExecutor) driver;
      WebElement meets = driver.findElement(By.linkText("NetMeeting”));
