enter image description here

Below are the code which I used:

    driver.findElement(By.xpath("//div[@class=' flag-dropdown']")).click();
    WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, 10);
    List<WebElement> options = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//ul[@role='listbox']/li"));
    By Country1 = By.xpath("//ul[@role='listbox']/li[85]");
    WebElement element1 = driver.findElement(Country1);
    for (WebElement opt : options) {
        if (opt.equals(element1)) {
            WebElement element3 = null;
            element3 = wait.until(ExpectedConditions.presenceOfElementLocated(Country1));

My error is:

Exception in thread "main" org.openqa.selenium.ElementClickInterceptedException: element click intercepted: Element <li data-flag-key="flag_no_83" class="country" data-dial-code="1" tabindex="0" data-country-code="is" role="option">...</li> is not clickable at point (746, 276). Other element would receive the click: <input class="search-box" type="search" placeholder="search" autocomplete="off" value="">
  (Session info: chrome=92.0.4515.159)

and it scrolls to the required country but I'm unable to click it.
Can anyone help me with this?

  • @pavelsaman I formatted the code, but couldn't find any error when I run my script and it failed to select the dropdown

Sorry for you, but your error say that some other element hide the element you want to click on. Try this :

element3 = wait.until(ExpectedConditions.elementToBeClickable(Country1));

instead of

element3 = wait.until(ExpectedConditions.presenceOfElementLocated(Country1));

Many time some element hide yours, some times you should try by javascript solution

JavaScriptExecutor jsExec = (JavaScriptExecutor)driver;
jsExec.executeScript("arguments[0].scrollIntoView();", driver.findElement(country1));   
jsExec.executeScript("arguments[0].click();", driver.findElement(country1))

Hope this can help
