Selenium - Text Box Interaction


Advertisements

In this section, we will understand how to interact with text boxes. We can put values into a text box using the 'sendkeys' method. Similarly, we can also retrieve text from a text box using the getattribute("value") command. Take a look at the following example.

Example

import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
import org.openqa.selenium.*;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;

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.calculator.net/percent-calculator.html");
      
      // Maximize the browser
      driver.manage().window().maximize();
      
      // Enter value 10 in the first number of the percent Calculator
      driver.findElement(By.id("cpar1")).sendKeys("10");
      
      Thread.sleep(5000);
      
      // Get the text box from the application
      String result = driver.findElement(By.id("cpar1")).getAttribute("value");
      
      // Print a Log In message to the screen
      System.out.println(" The Result is " + result);
      
      // Close the Browser.
      driver.close();
   }
}
