sign out button is not responding in selenium ide

clickAt(locator, coordString)

        locator - an element locator
        coordString - specifies the x,y position (i.e. - 10,20) of the mouse event relative to the element returned by the locator.

    Clicks on a link, button, checkbox or radio button. If the click action causes a new page to load (like a link usually does), call waitForPageToLoad.""
  • Maybe you can give a bit more information? Like your IDE steps, part of the HTMl of the signout button and the full error message. The current question does not contain enough information to answer it. Commented Jun 3, 2014 at 10:45

  • Could you post the HTML of the buttons and the IDE code? There isn't enough here for anyone to help you.

I see in your selenese you're calling ClickAt with only one argument, the locator. clickAt name="Sign Out"

You can try using the plain click keyword:

<tr> <td>click</td> <td>name=&quot;Sign Out&quot;</td></tr>

Also you can try supplying coordinates for the clickAt keyword:

<tr> <td>clickAt</td> <td>name=&quot;Sign Out&quot;</td> <td>1,1</td> </tr>

I think either of these should resolve your error.

Edit: if you're using the IDE then put the coordinates in the box called Value, it's just below Target.


  • thankyou very much, this will help me in future, as i m a beginner . i will ask a lot of questions in future
