Unable to find dynamic dropdown items Empty Unable to find dynamic dropdown items

on Tue Apr 10, 2012 8:50 pm
Hi,

I am new to selenium, i got struck for a long time with finding a item in a drop down list that was bind dynamically by selecting item from another dropdown. my sample code is followed by:

selenium.Open(".../Default.aspx");
selenium.WindowMaximize();
selenium.Click("name=ddCountry");
selenium.Click("//div[@id='ddCountry_DropDown']/div/ul/li[1]");
str = selenium.GetText("//div[@id='ddCountry_DropDown']/div/ul/li[1]");
selenium.Type("name=ddCountry", strValue);
selenium.Click("name=ddCity");
selenium.Click("//div[@id='ddCity_DropDown']/div/ul/li[1]");
str = selenium.GetText("//div[@id='ddCity_DropDown']/div/ul/li[1]");
selenium.Click("id=btnRedirect");
selenium.WaitForPageToLoad("30000");

In the above code i was trying to do like after selecting an item in a country dropdown. few items were bind to city dropdown on selectionchange event fires. my problem is " selenium.Click("//div[@id='ddCity_DropDown']/div/ul/li[1]"); "
when this code executes i got error like "Element //div[@id='ddCity_DropDown']/div/ul/li[1] not found". please provide a solution for this problem thanks in advance.

regards,
Venkat

Does this operation -

selenium.Click("//div[@id='ddCity_DropDown']/div/ul/li[1]");

cause page to load? In that case you would need to use - waitForPageToLoad("timeout")

use Thread.sleep(3000); in between two drop down lists(country and city). It will stops the execution for given time and waits for the city drop down list to load

Hi,

After clicking on the dropdown

boolean blnSelect=false;
int intSec=0;
while(blnSelect==false && intSec<120)
{
try
{
if(selenium.isElementPresent("Element ID"));
blnSelect=true;
}
catch(Exception e)
{
intSec++;
Thread.sleep(1000);
}
}

Where 'Element ID' is the element you are waiting for.

Please use this it might help.
After waiting until the element present you can your further comments.
