Moving mouse pointer to a specific location or element using C and Selenium

0 votes

I am performing a click operation using Selenium and C#.I am able to perform click operation but I am not able to move mouse pointer(cursor) to a specific co-ordinate or over specific element.

Below is the code I’m using.

Actions action = new Actions(driver);

action.MoveByOffset(500, 500).ContextClick().Perform();

 ChromeDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
   Actions action = new Actions(driver);

   action.MoveByOffset(5,5).Perform();  //moves cursor to point (5,5)

   action.MoveByOffset(10, 15).Perform();  //moves cursor to point (10,15)

Rather than trying to get an element just move by offset. Make sure you know what your prior focus is... If none then it should be the top left corner of the page. Then put your sleep in the middle and you should be able to see the mouse move, wait, and then click.

Actions action = new Actions(driver);
action.MoveByOffset(200,100).Perform();
Thread.Sleep(10000);
action.Click();

Hi, I will Share my ideas.

Here is a piece of code where we can move the mouse pointer to a location and clicking on the moved region

import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;

import org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Actions;

Actions builder = new Actions(driver);  

WebElement Element = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//div[@id='signUpModal']")); 

builder.moveToElement(Element, 100, 100).click().build().perform();

Note: The Pointer will move with reference to region of element described "Element"(Top left of Element region is considered as 0,0).

n order to perform a 'mouse hover' action, we need to chain all of the actions that we want to achieve in one go. So move to the element that which has sub elements and click on the child item. It should the same way what we do normally to click on a sub menu item.
