How to specify ENTER button functionality in Selenium WebDriver code

0 votes
I'm figuring out a way to hit the "Enter" key in Selenium. Unfortunately the form I'm trying to test doesn't have a Submit button. Neither can I modify it since it is not my own code.

When working with it manually, I hit the "ENTER" button via keyboard. I need to know how to do that with the Selenium typecommand as there is no button to click.

I'm assuming your writing the code in Java, so you can use the below code to find the element and then click on it:

driver.findElement(By.id("Value")).sendKeys(Keys.ENTER); 

or

driver.findElement(By.id("Value")).sendKeys(Keys.RETURN); 

For this to work, you should also import the "org.openqa.selenium.Keys" package.

What would be the command if I'm using Python?

@Vardhan, you can use following lines of code in Python:

elem = driver.find_element_by_id("q")
elem.send_keys("dummy")
elem.send_keys(Keys.ENTER)
elem.send_keys(Keys.RETURN)

Selenium offers a '. click()' method to help you perform various mouse-based operations for your web-application. You can use the Selenium click button method for various purposes such as selecting the radio button and checkbox or simply clicking on any button or link, drag and drop, click and hold, etc.

Press Enter/Return Key in Selenium

For pressing Enter key over a textbox we can pass Keys.ENTER or Keys.RETURN to the sendKeys method for that textbox.

WebElement textbox = driver.findElement(By.id("idOfElement"));
textbox.sendKeys(Keys.ENTER);

Or

WebElement textbox = driver.findElement(By.id("idOfElement"));
textbox.sendKeys(Keys.RETURN);
