1. sendKeys() webelement method with example

sendKeys(java.lang.charSequence... keysToSend) sets value in the elements.

Example :

package com.selenium.practise;

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;

public class TestGoogle {

	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
		
		System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "E:\\Soft Wares\\chromedriver.exe");
		WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();	
		driver.get("https://www.google.com/");
		driver.findElement(By.name("q")).sendKeys("Today's Weather");//Set the value in the element
        driver.close();
    }
}

(or)

package com.selenium.practise;

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;

public class TestGoogle {

	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
		
		System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "E:\\Soft Wares\\chromedriver.exe");
		WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();	
		driver.get("https://www.google.com/");
		WebElement input=driver.findElement(By.name("q"));
        input.sendKeys("Today's Weather"); //Set the value in the element
        driver.close();
    }
}

1. clear() webelement method with example

clear() : This will clear the value if this element is a text entry element.

Example :

package com.selenium.practise;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
public class TestGoogle {

	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
		System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "E:\\Soft Wares\\chromedriver.exe");
		WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();	
		driver.get("https://www.google.com/");
		driver.findElement(By.name("q")).sendKeys("Today's Weather");
		driver.findElement(By.name("q")).clear();//clearing the value
		driver.findElement(By.name("q")).sendKeys("WebElement");
		driver.close();
		//close the window
	}
}

(or)

package com.selenium.practise;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
public class TestGoogle {

	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
		System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "E:\\Soft Wares\\chromedriver.exe");
		WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();	
		driver.get("https://www.google.com/");

		//close the window
	}
}

3. click() webelement method with example

Click() : It clicks the current element.

Example :

package com.selenium.practise;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
public class TestGoogle {

	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
		System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "E:\\Soft Wares\\chromedriver.exe");
		WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
