I am using Selenium v3.8.0, also I do the coding in C#.

Now I try to validate if XPath or the webElement exists on the site, though I don't success

Now I try to validate the text Login

then I want to alert it in console:

Here is my attempt:

 if (IsElementPresent(By.XPath("//h3[@translate='TITLE_LOGIN']"))) {
       Console.WriteLine("Element exists");         
 }
 else {                    
       Console.WriteLine("Element not displayed");            
 }

 private bool IsElementPresent(By by) {
       try
       {
           Driver.Instance.FindElement(by);
           return true;
       }
       catch (NoSuchElementException)
       {
           return false;
       }
 }

  • I was able to find the Login element with document.evaluate("//h3[@translate='TITLE_LOGIN']", document, null, XPathResult.ANY_TYPE, null ) on the Firefox console. Could you display the errors/outputs of your C# code? – João Farias Jan 20 '18 at 16:05

Try this:

bool IsPresent= driver.FindElement(By.XPath("/html/body/main/div/section/h3")).Displayed;
if (IsPresent)
{
     Console.WriteLine("Element exists");
}
else
{
   Console.WriteLine("Element not displayed");
}
-1

By using Displayed or (isDisplayed() method in Java) we may get NoSuchElementException

In order to avoid the exception, we may use the below code:

List<WebElement> element = driver.findElements(<By locator>);

if(element.size()>0)
{
  Console.WriteLine("Element exists");
}
else
{
  Console.WriteLine("Element not displayed");
}
