    For documentation on this error, please visit: http://seleniumhq.org/exceptions/no_such_element.html

  • driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(10,TimeUnit.SECONDS);

    This sets the implicit wait timer to 10 seconds. If the element is not present after those 10 seconds, then you will receive an ElementNotFound exception. You would also get the exception if your selector does not work. Test the selector in DevTool's DOM explorer's search.

    If the element is

    <input id="myInput">

    then the following selectors will work:

    • By.Id("myInput")
    • By.CssSelector("#myInput")
    • By.XPath("//*[@id='myInput']")
