I am trying to run the below code but getting error. Can you please point out the issue

import java.util.List;

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.remote.DesiredCapabilities;
import org.openqa.selenium.support.ui.ExpectedConditions;
import org.openqa.selenium.support.ui.WebDriverWait;

public class Menu {

    public static void main(String[] args) throws InterruptedException {
        DesiredCapabilities capabilities = DesiredCapabilities.firefox();
        capabilities.setCapability("acceptInsecureCerts", true);
        capabilities.setJavascriptEnabled(true);
        capabilities.setCapability("marionette", true);
        System.setProperty("webdriver.gecko.driver","C:/Users/ikram/Downloads/geckodriver-v0.18.0-win64/geckodriver.exe");
        WebDriver driver =new FirefoxDriver();

        driver.get("http://awqaf.texpo.com/");
        driver.switchTo().defaultContent();
        //driver.switchTo().frame(0); // use this if it's in frame and you don't know how to locate it
        //WebElement aboutdrop = (new WebDriverWait(driver, 15)).until(ExpectedConditions.presenceOfElementLocated(By.xpath("//a[contains(text(),'ABOUT US')]")));
        WebElement aboutdrop=driver.findElement(By.xpath("//a[contains(text(),'ABOUT US')]"));
        List<WebElement> about=aboutdrop.findElements(By.tagName("option"));

        for (int i=0;i<=about.size();i++){
            String value = about.get(i).getText();
            System.out.println(value);

        }
    }
}

    Your element which you are trying to access using WebElement aboutdrop=driver.findElement(By.xpath("//a[contains(text(),'ABOUT US')]")); is not correct. Please provide relevant HTML so that a proper solution can be given. – demouser123 Jul 19 '17 at 9:31

Use linkText element Locator method instead of XPath.

    driver.get("http://awqaf.texpo.com/"); 
    WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, 10);
    WebElement element =wait.until(ExpectedConditions.presenceOfElementLocated(By.linkText("ABOUT US"))); 
   // WebElement aboutdrop=driver.findElement(By.linkText("ABOUT US"));

Also, try with removing driver.switchTo().defaultContent(); this line.

Generally switchTo().defaultContent(); method is used to go back on previous working window. So if it requires in your case then & then you may use.

You are getting NoSuchElementException which generally happens in 2 cases.

Case 1: The WebElement that you are trying to find is not present (or incorrect) on the page. So check if this is correct By.xpath("//a[contains(text(),'ABOUT US')]")

Case 2: You are trying to find the WebElement even before the page has completed loaded. Which I think is your case. In this scenario you should wait for the WebElement to get completely loaded then find it.

Below is the sample code to wait for the WebElement to load.

//This will initialize a object of WebDriverWait Class with the wait time 
//of 30 seconds before throwing the NoSuchElementException.
WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait( driver , 30);

wait.until(ExpectedConditions.visibilityOfAllElementsLocatedBy(By.xpath("//a[contains(text(),'ABOUT US')]")));

Let me know if this works for you or not. Cheers.
