Unable to click on button in Real device while locator is correct and visible on screen

Hi All,

I am facing an issue to click “Use this Location” button if I am selecting value from “Nighborhood” drop down on real device. If I am not selecting value from “Neighbor” dropdown and only select value from “city” drop down then it works perfectly. I don’t know once “Neighbor” drop down list open up and covers “Use this Location” button, I am not able to click it (after select value from “Neighbor” dropdown) on and its throwing no such element exception.

I am using below code snippet:

WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, 120);
WebElement useThisLocation = driver.findElement(By.id(“usingResourceID”));

I have tried with “UIselector” also:

public void TapByText(String buttonText) {

	String buttonName="new UiSelector().text(\"MY_TEXT\")".replace("MY_TEXT", buttonText);
	List<WebElement> el = (List<WebElement>) driver.findElements(MobileBy.AndroidUIAutomator(buttonName));
    if (el.size()==0) {
       Log.info("element with 'Use this location' not found");

    new TouchAction(driver).press(ElementOption.element(el.get(0))).waitAction().release().perform();
    ReportMobile.getMessage(buttonText +" is clicked");


I am able to click on element in Emulator without any dependency of value selection from drop down.
