WebDriverWait wait2 = new WebDriverWait(driver, 10); wait2.until(ExpectedConditions.invisibilityOfElementLocated(By.xpath("xpath_of_element_to_be_invisible"))); driver.findElement(By.xpath("xpath_element_to_be_clicked")).click();
A better solution will be to get a bit more granular and instead of using ExpectedCondition as invisibilityOfElementLocated we can use ExpectedCondition as elementToBeClickable as follows:
WebDriverWait wait1 = new WebDriverWait(driver, 10); WebElement element1 = wait1.until(ExpectedConditions.elementToBeClickable(By.xpath("xpath_of_element_to_be_clicked"))); element1.click();
