This is my code:

foreach(IWebElement close in el.FindElements(By.ClassName("search-choice-close")))

The elements listed in FindElements are all list items in a "multiselect" (a select that's hidden behind a fancy ul/li javascript widget.

When the loop enters the second time, I get a StaleElementException, because clicking the first element updates the DOM.

What is a clean way to loop nicely over these elements that, I assume, must be 'found' after each DOM update?

1 Answer 1


I used a helper function to see if at least one element still exists. Because I'm finding a new element each loop, StaleElementException doesn't occur anymore.

while(isElementVisible(d, (By.ClassName("search-choice-close"))))
