How to handle the popup of file upload in Windows OS with WebDriver?

0 votes

I saw another thread with solutions for uploading files using WebDriver. But none of them are working on the below sites.

http://www.uploadify.com/demos/
http://www.zamzar.com/

I'm using the below code and i'm still getting errors. Suggestions and edits are welcome :)

WebElement fileInput = driver.findElement(By.name("uploadfile"));
fileInput.sendKeys("C:/path/to/file.jpg");

The value of name locator has probably changed to "file_1" now. Or else you can use id locator with this value and try once "inputFile".

WebElement fileInput = driver.findElement(By.name("file_1"));
fileInput.sendKeys("C:/path/to/file.jpg");

If this still does not work, then try this:

driver.findElement(By.id("inputFile")).click();
driver.switchTo()
       .activeElement()
       .sendKeys("C:/path/to/file.jpg");

When click on that element then the file select popup was open

After upload, how to close the file selection popup

Hey Siva, to upload a file, you don't need to open File Select window. Instead, you can use this line of code to directly mention the file you wish to upload using sendKeys() method:

uploadElement.sendKeys("File_path");
