Unable to select Box using selenium2.0

Post by on Tue Jan 28, 2014 9:57 am


I am newbie to selenium.
I was trying to select a value from the select box in
i am using firefox 12.0 and eclipse ... In this site, for religion select box, when i try to select " Hindu" by using this sentence 


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();


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

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

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

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

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

Exception in thread "main" 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: '', 'Windows 7', os.arch: 'amd64', os.version: '6.1', java.version: '1.6.0_21'
Driver info: driver.version: unknown
at Pack1.matri.main(

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