WebDriver Selenium browse file Java

Can't browse file using webdriver.

driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(3, TimeUnit.SECONDS); driver.findElement(By.id("1434461513889_57_7_input.file")).sendKeys("C:\\PDF_V1_COL88810_6L_Frangipani_TL_Fr_P1211089.pdf");

Have this error:

NoSuchElementException: Unnable to locate element: {"method":"id","selector":"BatchUploadPlugin_57_fileupload"}

HTML code


From the screenshot you have given, I can see the concerned element is in an iframe.

(Check the second bar in the developer tools below the bar containing: Inspector, Console,etc. You will note the iframe#iframe_1434526152814_57_7. ).

Hence, you weren't able to send the path to it.

In order to send the path for upload, you need to switch to the frame first and then send the path to the element "Browse" for upload.

For switching frame, you can use the below code (The frame id that I can see from the screenshot, is iframe_1434526152814_57_7 which I can safely presume to be dynamic and can't use as ID of the frame to switch-to. So, I am assuming there is only 1 frame in the page, hence the code.):


Then, send the path to the element using the below code:


Kindly do in below way :


.File element should not be there in id.

I'm not an expert in selenium, but looks like the snippet of the code you have posted is not able to throw this exception. As it searches for BatchUploadPlugin_57_fileupload, which is form id. And your code is searching for an input, which id is 1434461513889_57_7_input.

Also what I've figured out is that driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(3, TimeUnit.SECONDS); may not work as expected for these developers. Try to replace it with Thread.sleep(3000);. I know that thread sleep is not recommended for selenium, but just to test.

Try below code.. you need to pass upload textbox webelement and upload button webelement..

public void UploadFile(By locatorUpload, By locatorButton, String filePath){

waitForElementClickable(driver, locatorButton, 4);


public void waitForElementClickable(WebDriver driver, By locator, Integer timeoutInSeconds){
WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, timeoutInSeconds);

For Dealing with Native Elements, Why can't you try out Sikuli Integration with Selenium scripts. You can refer to this link for more details. http://selenium-suresh.blogspot.in/2014/01/sikuli-automation-tool-integration-with.html
