Selenium - Drag and Drop


Advertisements

As a tester, you might be in a situation to perform a 'Drag & drop' operation. We will perform a drag and drop operation by picking up a tree grid that is available for us on http://www.keenthemes.com/preview/metronic/templates/admin/ui_tree.html. In the example, we would like to drag an element 'Disable Node' from 'initially open' folder to 'Parent Node' Folder.

Example

import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;

import org.openqa.selenium.*;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Actions;
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Action;

public class webdriverdemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) throws InterruptedException {
   
      WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();
      //Puts a Implicit wait, Will wait for 10 seconds before throwing exception
      driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(10, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
      
      // Launch website
      driver.navigate().to("http://www.keenthemes.com/preview/metronic/templates/admin/ui_tree.html");
      driver.manage().window().maximize();
      
      WebElement From = driver.findElement(By.xpath(".//*[@id='j3_7']/a"));
      WebElement To = driver.findElement(By.xpath(".//*[@id='j3_1']/a"));
      
      Actions builder = new Actions(driver);
      Action dragAndDrop = builder.clickAndHold(From).moveToElement(To).release(To).build();
      
      dragAndDrop.perform();
      driver.close();
   }
}

Output

After performing the drag-drop operation, the output would be as shown below.
