Angular JS Selenium cannot click a button by python code on mac

+1 vote

I have a button, i can successfully find it and capture it's text. However click is not working. Can someone help.

<button class="yellow labeled icon button no-margin" type="button">
<div class="icon my_class"></div>
<span class="ttt">Add new student</span>
</button>

This works:

return driver.find_element(By.XPATH, 'xpath').text

But this does not work and "no exception". Code pass but click not done.

driver.find_element(By.XPATH, 'xpath').click()

You can try clicking it with javascript :

element = driver.find_element(By.XPATH, 'xpath') driver.execute_script("arguments[0].click();", element)
