Getting Element not visible exception error

I am trying to click on web element by writing manually test case .All the time error is appearing :((Root cause: org.openqa.selenium.ElementNotVisibleException: element not visible).

I have tried using keyword Wait for element visible and wait for element clickable, but no luck.

Please advide.

I’ve run into pages like this you will want to use the javascript click object keyword. I also found this extremely frustrating.

Create this keyword and try to use this, hopefully this works for you.

executor.executeScript(‘arguments[0].click()’, element)




+1 for the javascript click… it works…
after insane attempts to get the button recognised as visible:

dynamicObject = findTestObject('Page_Add_new_product/input_publish')
WebUI.scrollToElement(dynamicObject, 3)
WebUI.waitForElementClickable(dynamicObject, 3)  //still doesn't work

The javascript click does it:


… should be available as standard


Greeting, I’m having a hard time understanding the javascript click object keyword. Since I’m also facing the same problem with ’ org.openqa.selenium.ElementNotVisibleException: element not visible’. Can someone explain how and where I can use the javascript to to solve the issues?

yes @Mohammad Shahiran there is a folder to the far left under test suites, and all that called “keywords” you have to create a new package and a new keyword like above. then in your test case when you choose keyword from the drop down or copy and past like what jonathan has you can call the keyword to do your click. make sense? if not I can add screenshots.

I understand. Thank you very much.
