To perform a 'mouse hover' action, you need to concatenate all of the actions that you want to achieve in one go.
With the actions object you should first move to the text box, and then move to the edit icon and click it.
Below is my attempt at sample code to perform Mouse hover;
//Move to the Textbox Actions actions = new Actions(driver); WebElement textbox = wait.until(ExpectedConditions.visibilityOfElementLocated(By.className("textbox"))); actions.moveToElement(textbox); //Wait for the edit button to become available then click it WebElement editButton = wait.until(ExpectedConditions.visibilityOfElementLocated(By.className("editButton"))); actions.moveToElement(editButton); actions.click().build().perform();
To simulate complex (mouse) actions rather than working on the elements directly, use ActionBuilder.
See the reply in this thread for a starting point.
Assume that your text box has an ID eg: app_title, you can hover over it using
element = @driver.find_element(:id,"app_title") @driver.action.move_to(element).perform
This will place the mouse focus on the textbox and you will see your edit icon on the screen. After that it is simple, you can click on it using
