Flash identification is not supported by current selenium.

Hi sirisha,

First of all thanks to ask the question in this forum. I have read and analyze your problem. Actually flash is like a movie or animation which contains dynamic content and also contain interactivity like link and button. The main problem with flash component that it doesn't show any option in right click except the flash one. It is even harder to identify the element through firebug or xpather.

The reasons for non detecting the flash component is because it is an add-on or external file that will execute it with the help of different software called flash player. The control goes to different software which is embedded into your website but a part of your site as dom locater or xpath.


I will provide you a rough solution may it will not work but try it. Try to use java-script code to detect or handle the element in flash. you have to look over it how to interact with flash element in java. If you will get the way then user the selenium command like {storeEval ( script, variableName ), storeExpres​sion( expression, variableName )}. This is the only solution, I think of.

Lets hope in future release, selenium will support the flash component identification.


Best of luck.

Hi,

I have never worked with flash component and I know java script at beginner level only. I am just guessing the solution.
I have not getting any idea how your component is embedded in you application.

Can you give link on which your working, if not try to find similar link on any website on internet and send me the link. i will simulate the scenario and then look what can I do.


The X-path you are creating is working ? I don' t think x-path will work. After invoking/ starting flash application the scope/ is out of control out of selenium reach.

I will try but I am also not sure about it.

Hi Senthilm,

Actually problem was user was not able to click on button[flash button];

But HTML Source code was given as :

height="22" width="160"
data="swfupload/swfupload.swf?preventswfcaching=1249380278159"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash">


So to click that he has to use
selenium.click("css=object#SWFUpload_2")

Thanks,
Nellore Krishna Kumar
