I am trying to scroll in an Android App but I'm getting an error.

Code :

Dictionary<string, string> scrollObject = new Dictionary<string, string>();
scrollObject.Add("direction", "down");
((IJavaScriptExecutor)driver).ExecuteScript("mobile: scroll", scrollObject);

Error: System.NotImplementedException: Method has not yet been implemented

  • Are you trying to just scroll down or to an element? Also are you using iOS Simulator for iOS 7 or 8? – kirbycope May 30 '17 at 19:22
  • Hello kirbycop, I'm can either scroll to an element or just scroll down to half the page. I'm using a real Android device with Nougat 7.1.1. – albertgeorge253 May 31 '17 at 6:17

The Swipe, ScrollTo, and ScrollToExact methods have been deprecated. The release notes suggests using OpenQA.Selenium.Appium.ByAndroidUIAutomator or OpenQA.Selenium.Appium.ByIosUIAutomation. Here is their example:

public void ScrollingToSubElement()
    AndroidElement list = driver.FindElement(By.Id("android:id/list"));
    var locator = new ByAndroidUIAutomator("new UiScrollable(new UiSelector()).scrollIntoView("
                    + "new UiSelector().text(\"Radio Group\"));");
    AppiumWebElement radioGroup = list.FindElement(locator);

As an alternative, a different approach (which is similar to the one you were trying) is presented on SO.

WebElement element = driver.findElementByXpath("xpath_of_element");
((JavascriptExecutor) driver).executeScript("arguments[0].scrollIntoView(true);", element);
