Drag and Drop local file to chrome object


Hi everyone,

I know this has been asked many times with reference to Katalon Studio.

Is there a way to get the job done on Katalon recorder using the “target” and “value” fields?.
I have to automate dragging a file (let’s say c:\katalon\test.bin) into chrome page object.

I have tried many options but none seem to work.

Can you guys lend me a hand?




Drag and drop of a local file can not be automated with Katalon Recorder or the Selenium IDE.

The Chrome security blocks this. Otherwise extensions could steal local files. You could use a desktop automation tool like Sikuli or UI Vision.


thanks, that helped!.
