Hi ,

you can't select the list via select command directly in webdriver. You need to follow the way present in following code :


 * Select single/multiple options.
 * Assume that you have Internet Explorer and Selenium Server is running on your
 *  computer on default port 4444. Otherwise, change accordingly in the constructor.
 * @Author: Xuan Ngo
import com.thoughtworks.selenium.DefaultSelenium;
public class Select
  private DefaultSelenium m_oBrowser = null;
  public static void main(String[] args)
    Select oSelect = new Select();
    // Select single/multiple options.
  // Constructor
  public Select()
    this.m_oBrowser = new DefaultSelenium("localhost", 4444, "*iexplore", "http://openwritings.net/");
    this.m_oBrowser.start(); // Start Selenium.
    this.m_oBrowser.open("http://openwritings.net/sites/default/files/select.html"); // Open the webpage.
  // Select single/multiple options.
  public void runExamples()
    // Single Selection: Use ID locator and LABEL option locator to select July.
    this.m_oBrowser.select("id=single-selection", "label=July");
    // Multiple Selections: Use variations of locators to select February, August and November.
    this.m_oBrowser.select("xpath=//select[@size='12']", "value=Feb");                            // Select February
    this.m_oBrowser.addSelection("css=select[id=multi-selections]", "index=7");                    // and August.
    this.m_oBrowser.addSelection("dom=document.getElementById('multi-selections')", "id=m_opt_10");// and November.
    http://this.m_oBrowser.stop(); // Close Selenium.

Hope this will help you. best of luck.
