Hello Tushar, if by handling Dropdown you mean selecting an option/options from the dropdown menu, then you can do this in following ways:

  • select_by_index(desired_index_value)
  • select_by_visible_text(“text_to_be_selected_from_drop_down_menu”)
  • select_by_value(value)

In the following example, different methods are shown through which you can select an element from the menu (@aria-label=’select’):

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.support.ui import Select
from time import sleep
from selenium.common.exceptions import NoSuchElementException
from pip._vendor.distlib import resources

driver = webdriver.Firefox()
driver.get("http://demos.dojotoolkit.org/dijit/tests/test_Menu.html")

sleep(5)

try:
    dropdown_element = Select(driver.find_element_by_xpath("//select[@aria-label='select']"))

    # Option 1 - Selecting the drop-down item by using the text
    dropdown_element.select_by_visible_text("bleed through")
    sleep(5)

    # Option 2 - Selecting the drop-down item by using the index value
    dropdown_element.select_by_index(0)
    sleep(5)

    # Option 3 - Selection of desired option using value
    # select_element.select_by_value('2')

except NoSuchElementException:
    print("Element not found")

sleep(5)

driver.quit()
