How can I press ENTER key with the execute script in selenium python

+2 votes

I'm not able to press ENTER key when executing the script. Below is my code:

f=driver.find_element_by_css_selector("textarea._bilrf")
(driver.execute_script("arguments[0].value = arguments[1]", f, "Hi!"))

The word "Hi!" is sent to the element. But, not able to press ENTER to send it. Also, send_keys() and submit() don't work in my code. This is the url where i'm working: https://www.instagram.com/p/BgdhsyvgWCi/?taken-by=asarokh

The below code containing Keys.ENTER might just work for you:

from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys
driver.find_element_by_xpath("""//*[@id="react-root"]/section/main/div/div/article/div[2]/section[1]/a[2]/span""").click()
driver.find_element_by_css_selector("textarea._bilrf").send_keys("Hi!", Keys.ENTER)

How I can open the link in a new tab using the click and control command together?
You can hold down the control button or the command key – to open a link in a new tab. You can also click on a link and hold down the mouse without releasing, dragging the link to the browser's tab bar to open it in a new tab.

Or add this html code:
<a href="http://www.edureka.co" target="_blank">Edureka home</a>
Hi Niroj,

I am talking about how to open the link with click event in a new tab using selenium not manually.

Your help will be highly appreciated.

Thanks,
