  • Could you share the region of the DOM and the code? – João Farias Mar 31 '19 at 11:16
  • I think which one element you want to select is not the drop down option, it's a clickable submenu so you need to select that element directly by the Locators. – Upkar Singh Apr 1 '19 at 6:48

What you need to do is, create separate WebElement variables for each action in the dropdown, for example, the main element is "Drinks", its submenu is "Non-Alcoholic" & its submenu is "RedBull".

So for this, there will be 3 separate WebElements, and perform click event using Actions. You can perform as many clicks as you want. And an answer to your question is to add sleep between the clicks. That thing worked for me.

    WebElement Food = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//*[@id='main-menu']/div/ul/li[11]/a"));
    WebElement Drinks = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//*[@id='drinks']/span[1]"));
    WebElement RedBull = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//*[@id='redbull']/span[1]"));

    Actions action = new Actions(driver);
