Finding WebDriver element with Class Name in java

0 votes

I have to locate the element using Class Name, but the problem is there is a sapce between two words in class name. I don't know how to handle it in Java and neither do i have access to change the class name. Below is the HTML code:

<span>
<a class="current time" href="http://someurl/"   onclick="s_objectID="http://someur/">url</a>
</span> 

Running the below code throws me an error. 

driver.findElement(By.className("current time")).click(); 

Even by locating through 'cssSelector' from Firefox's inspect option did not work for me. what could be wrong? 
PS: This question got good response for jquery. But I was working on Java, can someone help me with this please.

The better way to handle this element is by locating through cssSelector and not class name because of the spacing inbetween. And i'm assuming that your tag name is 'a' based on your HTML from above. So based on this assumption, the correct usage for locating the element is:

WebElement element = driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("a[class='current time']"));
element.click();

Other options for locating it could be:

WebElement element = driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("a[class='current time']"));
element.click();

Or

WebElement element = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//a[@class='current time']"));
element.click();

driver.findElement(By.className("current time")).click();


driver.findElement(By.className("_14fdu48d")).click();


or use 

WebElement element = driver.findElement(By.id("submit"));

// Action can be performed on Input Button element

element.submit()

or 

id , name other locators
