Elements are not recognised in selenium

0 votes
Sometimes while running the code, elements are not recognized even though they are present. Can someone help me?

I am trying to search for a keyword in google and sometime after executing the code, I get an error saying no element found. Even though the search box is there.

Many a times the problem is that the web elements are not loaded when you execute the code. The best practice is to wait till you find the element and then you try doing operations on the web-element. Here is an example of how to do that:-

try using explicit wait :

WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(webDriver,60);
wait.until(ExpectedConditions.visibilityOfElementLocated(By.name("q")));

This way selenium will wait till your searchbox will appear in the website.

Hope this helps.
