how to select an option from select box of a form

Post by Archana on Fri Aug 21, 2009 3:33 pm

I want to test student registration form. I have a form with some select boxes & uploading photo file type elements. I want to submit this form by selenium and check whether it is inserted in db or not aswell as whether photo is uploaded to required folder or not?

I'm strucked in the beginning only, I could not select the selected option. I was trying to know what options are loaded for the select box like ,

$x = $this->selenium->getSelectOptions("xpath=//select[@id='caste']")

select box id is 'caste' here.
When I execute it's scolding with an error unexpected T-variable, how can I solve this?

Otherwise to know all these, can u give me a url which will discuss these in detail?

please help.

Use the following command in IDE for listbox/dropdown.

Select | caste | label = text shown in list which you want to select.

For upload any files, there is some workaround but now exact solution. Selenium is not fully supported the upload/download functionality.

If you want to upload file, give the absolute path in path textfield and click on upload button. But it is only working in firefox not in IE.

I hope this will help you little bit.
