Check that the element is clickable or not in Selenium WebDriver

0 votes

I have automated web applications that are very heavy on Ajax. 

Like a modal dialog is displayed with the text "Saving..." when it is saving the settings, while the rest of the page greys out

My test scripts are trying to click the next link in the test before the message disappears. It almost always works when driving Firefox, but when driving Chrome the following error is displayed:

Exception in thread "main" org.openqa.selenium.WebDriverException: Element is not clickable at point (99.5, 118.5). Other element would receive the click: <div class="dijitDialogUnderlay _underlay" dojoattachpoint="node" id="lfn10Dijit_freedom_widget_common_environment_Dialog_8_underlay" style="width: 1034px; height: 1025px; "></div> (WARNING: The server did not provide any stacktrace information)

Is there a way to detect if the element is clickable or not?

Use Selenium Waits:

    WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(yourWebDriver, 5);
    wait.until(ExpectedConditions.elementToBeClickable(By.xpath("//xpath_to_element")));

Webdriver will wait for 5 seconds for the element to be able to be clicked.
