I have tried all the possible things. also, tried searching over tried different combinations and variations. I can get the element clicked which opens the dropdown. but i am not able to select an option in it. I tried with actions, sendkeys, keys.down/enter and multiple things as well. however, it didn't help. That's the only thing I am stuck on.

//selecting office


// attempt with actions
Actions actions = new Actions(driver);

// attempt with sendKeys

driver.findElement(By.id("DG5QEPn")).sendKeys("RTP HQ"); 

// attempt with Keys.Down and Keys.Enter

enter image description here

Below code worked for me

WebElement selectMyElement = driver.findElement(By.id("DG5QEPn"));



Actions keyDown = new Actions(driver); keyDown.sendKeys(Keys.chord(Keys.DOWN, Keys.DOWN, Keys.ENTER)).perform();

  • Yes, this worked for me. Whereas just doing selectMyElement.sendKeys(Keys.DOWN); over and over did not work. You need to create the Action and use the Keys.chord. THANK YOU.

Try to use javascript click which will click on the element given it is present unlike the webdriver selenium click which needs the element to be displayed first.

driver.executeScript("arguments[0].click();", element)
  • This only works with buttons.
