I am using Selenium WebDriver and run into a issue.
In the UI, elements are seen by the WebDriver but it can't perform any actions such as click, type, select etc. Elements are found by Selenium and returned as an instance of webelement. I can get, getText(), isEnabled() etc, but it won't perform any actions. There are no exceptions, it just hangs.
I don't understand this behavior. If it seen by the WebDriver, it should click. I have tried using actions. That too shows the same behavior.
How to debug this issue? Any ideas?
driver = new FirefoxDriver(); driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(Integer.parseInt(Timeout), TimeUnit.SECONDS); element=driver.findElement(By.id("test")); element.clear(); element.sendKeys("test");
This works in other websites. Not in the one I'm testing. So I don't know if there is an issue in WebDriver or in the AUT.
EDIT: After moving to Selenium 2.13.0, above issues resolved. But I still want to know how to debug in case of error.
