How to scroll to element with Selenium WebDriver using C#?

SeleniumAutomation TestingTesting Tools

We can scroll to an element with Selenium webdriver in C#. This is done with the help of JavaScript Executor. Selenium can run JavaScript commands with the help of ExecuteScript method.

The method scrollIntoView in JavaScript is used to perform the scrolling action and the value true is passed as a parameter to the method. This is then passed to the ExecuteScript method.

Syntax

var e = driver.FindElement(By.XPath("//*[text()='Careers']"));
((IJavaScriptExecutor)driver)
.ExecuteScript("arguments[0].scrollIntoView(true);", e);

For implementation we shall be using the NUnit framework.

Example

using NUnit.Framework;
using OpenQA.Selenium;
using OpenQA.Selenium.Firefox;
using System;
namespace NUnitTestProject1{
   public class Tests{
      String u = "https://www.tutorialspoint.com/index.htm";
      IWebDriver d;
      [SetUp]
      public void Setup(){
         //creating object of FirefoxDriver
         d = new FirefoxDriver();
      }
      [Test]
      public void Test1(){
         //launching URL
         d.Navigate().GoToUrl(u);
         //identify element
         var e = d.FindElement(By.XPath("//*[text()='Careers']"));
         // JavaScript Executor to scroll to element
         ((IJavaScriptExecutor)d)
         .ExecuteScript("arguments[0].scrollIntoView(true);", e);
         Console.WriteLine(e.Text);
      }
      [TearDown]
      public void close_Browser(){
         d.Quit();
      }
   }
}
