But the problem arises when we have to detect the web-element by Variable name.
Here might be the situation, When we are passing the Variable value by the Variable name and want to select the option from the Drop-down menu using Variable name then we cannot use any of the available methods to select the Drop-down option.
So in this situation we can try in below manner to get the required Drop-down option from the Drop-down menu.
WebElement Drop_down_menu = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//select[@name='RubricID']"));
List Drop_down_option = Drop_down_menu.findElements(By.xpath(".//option[contains(text(),'" + Variable_name_ + "')]"));
for (WebElement option : Drop_down_option)
where ‘Drop_down_menu‘ will save the path of Drop down box on your web page.
‘Drop_down_option‘ will be the xpath of the required element from the Drop down box in which we will use Variable name.
‘Variable_name‘ will be the variable name used in your code.
