How to use Selenium webdriver to click google search?

SeleniumAutomation TestingTesting Tools

We can click on Google search with Selenium webdriver. First of all we need to identify the search edit box with help of any of the locators like id, class,name, xpath or css.

Then we will input some text with the sendKeys() method. Next we have to identify the search button with help of any of the locators like id, class, name, xpath or css and finally apply click() method on it or directly apply submit() method. We will wait for the search results to appear with presenceOfElementLocatedexpected condition.

We need to import org.openqa.selenium.support.ui.ExpectedConditions and import org.openqa.selenium.support.ui.WebDriverWait to incorporate expected conditions and WebDriverWait class. This concept comes from the explicit wait condition in synchronization.

Let us try to implement the below scenario.

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.support.ui.WebDriverWait;
import org.openqa.selenium.support.ui.ExpectedConditions;

public class SearchAction{
   public static void main(String[] args) {
System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver","C:\\Users\\ghs6kor\\Desktop\\Java\\chromedriver.exe");
      WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
      driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(5, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
      driver.get("https://www.google.com/");
      // identify element
      WebElement p=driver.findElement(By.name("q"));
      //enter text with sendKeys() then apply submit()
      p.sendKeys("Selenium Java");
      // Explicit wait condition for search results
      WebDriverWait w = new WebDriverWait(driver, 5);
      w.until(ExpectedConditions.presenceOfElementLocated(By.xpath("//ul")));
      p.submit();
      driver.close();
   }
}

Output
