How to right click on a link and open the link in a new tab using Selenium through Java

Tags: , , , ,



I am trying to right click on the Forgotten account? link on the Facebook login page using Selenium but it is not working.

I am trying to send.Keys() after contextClick() but the key press is happening on the page and not on the context menu.

package keyboardandmouseaction;

import java.awt.AWTException;
import java.util.Iterator;
import java.util.Set;

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.Keys;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Action;
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Actions;

public class testcase8 {
    public static void main(String[] args) throws AWTException, InterruptedException {

        System.out.println("Running keyboardandmouseactions > testcase8");

        System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "D:\chromedriver\chromedriver.exe");
        WebDriver driver=new ChromeDriver();

        driver.manage().window().maximize();
        driver.get("https://www.facebook.com/");

        WebElement link=driver.findElement(By.xpath("//a[contains(text(),"Forgotten account?")]"));
        Actions a=new Actions(driver);

        // defective code start
        Action builder=a.moveToElement(link).contextClick(link).sendKeys(Keys.ARROW_DOWN).sendKeys(Keys.ENTER).build();
        // defective code end
        builder.perform();



        Set<String> windowid =driver.getWindowHandles();
        Iterator<String> itr =windowid.iterator();

        String mainwindow=itr.next();
        String childwindow=itr.next();
        System.out.println("The mainwindow id is "+mainwindow);
        System.out.println("The childwindow id is "+childwindow);
        driver.switchTo().window(childwindow);
        driver.get("http://demo.automationtesting.in/Alerts.html");
        driver.close();

}
}

Answer

WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
driver.get("https://www.facebook.com/");
WebElement link=driver.findElement(By.xpath("//a[contains(text(),"Forgotten account?")]"));
Actions actions = new Actions(driver);

actions.keyDown(Keys.LEFT_CONTROL)
        .click(element)
        .keyUp(Keys.LEFT_CONTROL)
        .build()
        .perform();

ArrayList<String> tab = new ArrayList<>(driver.getWindowHandles());
driver.switchTo().window(tab.get(1));

}
