Print Eclipse IDE console output on a text file after Test execution

Following setting will print your eclipse console output on a separate Text file.

1| Create a text file (.txt) in your project folder
2| In Eclipse, right click Project > Run configurations
3| Click the Tab, "Common"
4| Select the Check boxes, File & Append
5| Now choose the correct directory and select the empty text file you created before
6| Click ok
7| Run the Test
It looks simple and an eclipse configuration :)

Locate and select Auto suggest on search field for a List item (/li) using WebDriver

The below code is for searching a text automatically from the auto suggest; mainly for a list item.

List <WebElement> listItems = driver.findElements(By.xpath("/html/body/div[4]/ul/li"));
Note:  We can also repalce the xpath locator,
By.xpath("/html/body/div[4]/ul/li") with By.xpath("//div[4]/ul/li")

It's not a better way to use the above xpath locator; meanwhile these locators can be replaced with one of the following options (use csslocators for better solution).
List <WebElement> listItems = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//div[contains(@class,'acResults')]//li"));    
List <WebElement> listItems = driver.findElements(By.xpath("//div[@class='acResults']//li"));
List <WebElement> listItems = driver.findElements(By.cssSelector(".acResults li"));
List<WebElement> link = driver.findElement("Element")).findElements(By.tagName("li"));

get(0) is the first option displayed on searching keywords
get(1) is the second option displayed on searching keywords

Anchor Tag :


<body id="data-search" class="hassidebar">
<ul id="material-result-list" style="top: 183px; left: 396.5px; width: 270px; display: block;">


Here, we need to click on specific anchor tag.

List<WebElement> listItems = driver.findElement("material-result-list")).findElements(By.tagName("a"));
