I am using Selenium Webdriver in C#. I am trying to find the element for below given Angular code.

"<div class="ViewMenu" ng-class="{'selectedViewMenu':SearchObj.param.View=='Videos'}" style="">Videos</div>"

I tried it using driver.FindElement(By.XPath("//div[@class='ViewMenu selectedViewMenu']"));

but it doesn't work.

  • what you have to do with this? Is it dropdown list/textbox/button? which environment you are using to run this script? Selenium V-? browser-? paste error msg that your IDE shows. Apr 26 '16 at 12:15
  • I recommend removing selectedViewMenu from your selector. It may not hurt but it definitely will not help.

Check with different XPath-

XPath 1:

//div[@class='ViewMenu selectedViewMenu']

XPath 2:

//*[@class='ViewMenu selectedViewMenu']

OR Try with CSS Selector:


one choice by CLASS:

driver.findElement(By.className("element class"))

another choice: by css selector (you need to work on css selector)

driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("css selector"))


Use this xpath: //div[@class='ViewMenu' and text() = 'Videos'] because class selectedViewMenu is probably only when element is selected.
