Unable to select Box using selenium2.0

on Tue Jan 28, 2014 9:57 am
Hi,

I am newbie to selenium.
I was trying to select a value from the select box in telugumatrimony.com
i am using firefox 12.0 and eclipse ...

telugumatrimony.com In this site, for religion select box, when i try to select " Hindu" by using this sentence 

wd.findElement(By.xpath(".//*[@id='RELIGION']")).sendKeys("Hindu");

it is selecting a different option .

Also, i selected RELIGION and Mother Tongue using these statements (these two work fine using these statements)

WebDriver  wd=new FirefoxDriver();
wd.get("http:telugumatrimony.com");

wd.findElement(By.xpath(".//*[@id='REGISTERED_BY']")).sendKeys("Myself");

Select dropdow=new Select(wd.findElement(By.xpath(".//*[@id='REGISTERED_BY']")));
dropdow.selectByVisibleText("Son");

Select dropdown = new Select(wd.findElement(By.xpath(".//*[@id='RELIGION']")));
dropdown.selectByIndex(1);

Select dropdown1=new Select(wd.findElement(By.xpath(".//*[@id='MOTHERTONGUE']")));
dropdown1.selectByIndex(49);

After this , the caste comes ......
 Select dropdown2=new Select(wd.findElement(By.xpath("//*[@id='TEMP_CASTE_NORMAL']")));
dropdown2.selectByIndex(1);



This is giving some error ..........

Exception in thread "main" org.openqa.selenium.support.ui.UnexpectedTagNameException: Element should have been "select" but was "input"
Build info: version: '2.39.0', revision: 'ff23eac', time: '2013-12-16 16:12:12'
System info: host: 'admin-HP', ip: '192.168.1.146', os.name: 'Windows 7', os.arch: 'amd64', os.version: '6.1', java.version: '1.6.0_21'
Driver info: driver.version: unknown
at org.openqa.selenium.support.ui.Select.(Select.java:46)
at Pack1.matri.main(matri.java:28)


What is the wrong i did ???? (OR) what is the xpath to be written to select CASTE ??????

Thanks,
Sudha

You need to check the tags that are used.
