Selenium and :hover css

0 votes

I want to test a menu which opens when the user moves the mouse over it. It closes when the mouse leaves the menu. How can I do this using Selenium-rc and Java?

My wish would be the following code to work, given that a div#navi_settings contained the menu which contains the - normally invisible - a element:

selenium.mouseHover("css=div#navi_settings");
assertTrue(selenium.isVisible("//a[contains(text(), 'Text on link')]"));

Unfortunately, the method moveHover() does not yet exist.

I couldn't find a way to do this using the Selenium interface. However, since I am using Selenium 2, I can use the WebDriver API, as per http://groups.google.com/group/selenium-developers/msg/8210537dde07155f?pli=1

In your case, something like this may work, if you can upgrade to Selenium 2:

WebDriver webDriver; 
...
((RenderedWebElement) webDriver.findElement(By.cssSelector("div#navi_settings"))).hover();
