Using gettext() method for the specific element using Selenium WebDriver

0 votes

I was fetching a textbox by usinf its ID and fetch the information present in that text box. I was using gettext() method but it is returning the ID value.

The output I am getting is = [[FirefoxDriver: firefox on XP (c0079327-7063-4908-b20a-a606b95830cb)] -> id: ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_txtName]

The code is below

Below is my code:

WebElement TxtBoxContent = driver.findElement(By.id(WebelementID));

TxtBoxContent.getText();

System.out.println("Printing "+TxtBoxContent);

RESULT:

Printing [[FirefoxDriver: firefox on XP (c0079327-7063-4908-b20a-a606b95830cb)] -> id: ctl00_ContentPlaceHolder1_txtName]

Mistake is that u r printing the object, not the inner text of an element To get the value, you need to use getAttribute().

WebElement TxtBoxContent = driver.findElement(By.id(WebelementID));

System.out.println("Printing " + TxtBoxContent.getAttribute("value"));
