Selenium is an effective device for controlling an internet browser through the program. It is purposeful for all browsers, works on all fundamental OS and its scripts are written in numerous languages i.e Python, Java, C#, etc, we will be using Python.

Requirement:

Working with Drop-down list:

Initially you have to import the Select class and afterward you have to make the case of Select class. After making the case of Select class, you can perform select strategies on that occasion to choose the choices from dropdown list.

Importing Select class:

from selenium.webdriver.support.ui import Select

For selection:

drop=Select(driver.find_element_by_id(' ')

drop.select_by_index()

Step-by-step approach:

  • Import webdriver from selenium module.

Python3




# Importing Select class

# Select by index
drop.select_by_index(2)
