In this post, lets use size( ) to count the number of list options available in a drop down field.
Go through the comments mentioned on the below screenshot to understand the Test Description:
Lets Implement the Test on Eclipse IDE:
1. Create a new Java Project say 'WebDriver-Project72' in Eclipse IDE
2. Configure the Project to work with Selenium WebDriver
3. Create a package say 'package72' under the newly created project.
4. Create a Java Class file say 'Class72' under the newly created package as shown below:
1. Write the following code into the newly created Java Class file as shown below and make sure that you resolve all the errors before going to next step:
2. Create a test method 'countDropDownListOptions( )' as shown below:
3. Create Select Class object for Drop Down field as shown below:
4. Retrieve all the list options from the Drop Down field using getOptions( ) command and assign them to the List<WebElement> type variable as shown below:
5. Use size( ) command with the List<WebElement> type variable for retrieving the count of list options available in the Dropdown field and assign the retrieved count to an integer variable say 'list_options_count' as shown below:
6. Enter the value of the integer variable which holds the count of the list options available in the Dropdown field into the Username text box field as shown below:
