Select class in WebDriver is used for selecting and deselecting options in a dropdown.

The objects of Select type can be initialized by passing the dropdown webElement as a parameter to its constructor.

WebElement testDrop = driver.findElement("testingDropdown"));  

Select dropdown = new Select(testDrop);

WebDriver offers three ways to select from a dropdown:

selectByIndex: Selection based on index starting from 0


selectByValue: Selection based on value


selectByVisibleText: Selection of option that displays text matching the given argument

   dropdown.selectByVisibleText(“The Alchemist”);
