How to simulate Ctrl+V in WebDriver2

on Sun Jun 16, 2013 9:23 pm
I need to check the following scenario :
1. Click on an image link which copies the url of the current page to the clipboard
2. Do a ctrl + v in the address bar of a new browser window.

- Is it possible to achieve the 2nd point using webdriver2?
- Also is it possible to bring the focus to the address bar of the browser window to paste the copied url?
 Please help.

I'm using the webdriver with java and this will work for me so:

1.  WebElement input = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//input"));
     input.sendKeys(Keys.CONTROL + "v");

2.  I think it is not possbile to locate the address bar as an WebElement.  
    Also pasting driver.get(Keys.CONTROL + "v"); was not working for me
Hope this helps
