How to get the select options using Selenium WebDriver in Java

0 votes

I am very new to Selenium and I'm stuck here:

I want to get the selected label or value of a drop down using Selenium WebDriver and then print it on the console.

I'm just able to select any value from the drop-down but not able to retrieve the selected value and print it.

Select select = new 
Select(driver.findElement(By.id("MyDropDown"))).selectByVisibleText(data[11].substring(1 , data[11].length()-1));
WebElement option = select.getFirstSelectedOption();

But all my efforts are going in vain. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey there!

You should be able to get the text using getText() if you have an option element, you can get that using getFirstSelectedOption());

Select select = new Select(driver.findElement(By.xpath("//select")));
WebElement option = select.getFirstSelectedOption();
String defaultItem = option.getText();
System.out.println(defaultItem );

Hope this helps.
