Handle iFrames | Selenium

It's easy to work with iFrames.  First, try to find all the iFrames available in web page;  Next, switch into the iframe and then come out of the iframe.


Snippet

try{
driver.switchTo().frame(driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("iframe[id='Value']")));
      new WebDriverWait(driver, 5)
      .until(ExpectedConditions.presenceOfElementLocated(By.cssSelector("Value")));
System.out.println("Element found");
}catch (TimeoutException e) {
      System.out.println("Element not Found");     
  }
}

How to Terminate iFrame?
To return back from the current iframe to main content, make use of the following script,

driver.switchTo().defaultContent(); 

Handle iFrames without id | name
 
driver.switchTo().frame(0);
