I am automating a scenario. I am using selenium with page object. Here some text fields doesn't enter the value.. There is no error in the program no error in console. locators are correctly mentioned. but still I couldn't get why should not automate the page ?

enter image description here

Html codes :

    Name text :    <input type="text" id="name" value="" name="name"
     class="form-control" />
               <span class="text-danger"></span>

    Name (language) : <input type="text" id="name_locale" value="" name="name_locale" class="form-control">

prefix : <input type="text" id="prefix" value="" name="prefix" class="form-control">

Token starts :  <input type="text" id="token_starts" value="" name="token_starts" class="form-control">

Token ends :  <input type="text" id="token_ends" value="" name="token_ends" class="form-control">


package pageobjects;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;

import pageobjects.HomePage;
import pageobjects.ManageMenu;
import pageobjects.subcategoryPage;
import steps.LoginSteps;
import steps.managesteps;
import steps.subcategorysteps;
import util.DriverManager;

public class subcategoryTest extends DriverManager {
    public void initDriver() {
        HomePage page = new LoginSteps().Login("geosony", "123456789");

    public void verifyValidLoginWithDataProvider() throws Exception {
        subcategorysteps log = new subcategorysteps();
        subcategoryPage ex = log.Login("Loan ","English","Loan","Bur Dubai","LLA","123","321","5");

        Assert.assertTrue(driver.getPageSource().contains("Hello Sony George"));

Please check following line in class subcategoryPage:

public void setName(String nam){name.sendKeys();}

Here as mentioned blank data is entered so Please change this line as per under :

public void setName(String nam){name.sendKeys(nam);}

And same as other elements.

Please Let me know If any query.
