O hai SQA, first post here.

I just started using Selenium a few days ago. However, I'm a little stumped getting it to work with one of my projects.

I have an HTML file containing a collection of images. Each image has an event handler, which calls a JavaScript function when I click the image, or press Enter after selecting it with the arrow keys.

However, Selenium doesn't recognize any interaction (mouse clicks or key presses) with the images no matter what I do, although I can get it to work with other sites. The "collage" is JavaScript-generated as opposed to being coded in pure HTML, although I'm not sure if that makes a difference. Any help would be appreciated.


1 Answer 1


how is the event triggered? does the element have an attribute say onclick?

another way to trigger javascript is to use the following example, which is more of a workaround.

WebDriver driver; // Assigned elsewhere
JavascriptExecutor js = (JavascriptExecutor) driver;
js.executeScript("return document.title");
