In my application, with respect to user access some elements in drop down will be enabled/disabled.I have to check whether the particular element is disabled or not.

If the element you're trying to find has a literal "disabled" attribute you're probably looking for someElement.isEnabled() which would return a boolean based on the outcome.


Also, you can use XPath to identify the disabled elements in dropdown

Ex:- driver.findElements(By.xpath("//option[@disabled="disabled"]"))

  • The above code works perfectly
