C# code

driver.FindElement(By.ClassName("select2")).Click();
driver.Manage().Timeouts().ImplicitWait = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10);
driver.FindElement(By.Id("select2-alpaca4-container")).Click();
driver.FindElement(By.XPath("//span[@id='select2-alpaca4-container']/..//*[text()='Normal User']")).Click();

I cannot use select since it has span as it is throwing error message "Element should have been select but was span" Can someone please provide me correct code here to select any one of the value

Try the below options:

driver.findElement(By.id("select2-alpaca4-container")).click();
Thread.sleep(3000L);
driver.findElement(By.xpath(".//span[contains(text(), 'Normal User')]")).click();

OR

driver.findElement(By.id("select2-alpaca4-container")).click();  
Thread.sleep(3000L); 
driver.findElement(By.xpath(".//span[contains(@title, 'Normal User')]")).click();
  • tried both but returns penQA.Selenium.NoSuchElementException occurred HResult=0x80131500 Message=no such element: Unable to locate element: {"method":"xpath","selector":".//span[contains(@title, 'Normal User')]"} – Amol Datar Dec 25 '18 at 10:16
