Page Factory: StaleElementReference Exception

0 votes
I'm learning PageFactory and I understood the concept of initElements() from where the elements are located. Now, if I click on an element and if that results in other elements in DOM changing, then it might throw a StaleElementReferenceException. How will we solve this issue?
Do I have to find that element once again by expecting there to be a change in the Element's properties in the DOM? Or is there another way out?

Usually, a StaleElementReferenceException is thrown when:
1. The element has been deleted entirely or
2. The element is no longer attached to the DOM

So by clicking on an element, if there is a change in DOM structure, then you have to simply re-initialize ( using initElements() ) all the elements for further use.
