Is it possible to manually set the attribute value of a Web Element using Selenium?

0 votes
Well there is this WebElement, I am dealing with, and I want to change the value of that attribute to something else irrespective of what's on the web page.

For instance, if value=1, then I want to manipulate it to value=10. I'm not sure if I can change the DOM of the page, but I'm guessing i can change the way my Selenium interprets this. PS: I'm using Selenium 2.0.

Yes, its very much possible. You just need to use the JavascriptExecutor class. Its used like this:

WebDriver driver; // Assigned elsewhere
JavascriptExecutor js = (JavascriptExecutor) driver;
js.executeScript("document.getElementById('//id of element').setAttribute('attr', '10')");
