I'm working on this site. There is a Next button. I want to click it using CSS selector only.

I'm using below code to get the element:


span.RveJvd.snByac is also used for Forgot email? button so this one is getting clicked.

Is there a way to combine class and the text 'Next' attributes of Next button?

Note : I have to use only CSS selector.

Css selectors do not allow selecting by inner text. To click that button with css you can just use:



driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("#identifierNext span"))
  • Hi thanks, it worked. Can you tell me difference between above two lines of code? In which case addition of tag (span) is helpful?

  • It depends on which element does actually have the action assigned. In other words which element actually represents a button.
