Finding elements by class name

Hi All,

I am trying to select something from a list using class name as ID isn’t available.

The problem I have is that on this page there are 7 options. They all have the same class name! “android.widget.RelativeLayout”. I noticed they have an index that goes in order for 1 to 7.

Currently I have this:

WebElement anotherproblem = driver.findElement(By.className(“android.widget.RelativeLayout”));

While it works it doesn’t click the specific option on the page I want. Is there a way I can tell it to click #1 in the list?


Try to build xpath with class name and any other locators

The inspect element gives me an xpath just trying to avoid using that since it’s very long!! Also I believe xpath is the worst one to use.

Can you try like this?

WebElement a= driver.findElement(By.className(“android.widget.RelativeLayout”));

and update if any issue

I tried that and I got the error:

Locator Strategy ‘tag name’ is not supported for this session

Trying to find a solution for this as it seems like it will work if I can get it supported!

WebElement element = (WebElement) driver.findElements(By.className(“android.widget.RelativeLayout”)).get(1);;

@Manish_Boricha This has worked thank you very much!! My tests thank you! :smiley:
