Getting this error: “Element is not clickable at point”

+1 vote

This error is only with Chrome and nothing else. Error is:

"org.openqa.selenium.WebDriverException: Element is not clickable at point (411, 675). Other element would receive the click: ..."

The element I want to click is, actually beside the element that is going to recieve the click. Neither is this element on top of it nor overlapping it. Any work around for this?

There are 3 possible solutions for this:
1. Use Actions() method

WebElement element = driver.findElement(By("element_path"));
Actions actions = new Actions(driver);
actions.moveToElement(element).click().perform();

2. Use Waits to let the page load completely before the click is performed

driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlywait(15 TimeUnit.seconds)

3. The element is not clickable because of a Spinner/Overlay on top of it:

By loadingImage = By.id("loading image ID");
WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, timeOutInSeconds);
wait.until(ExpectedConditions.invisibilityOfElementLocated(loadingImage));

WebElement element=driver.findelement(By.Xpath("your xpath"));

Point p= element.getLocation();

Actions actions = new Actions(driver);

actions.moveToElement(element).movebyoffset(p.x,p.y).click().perform();
