Unable to select autocomplete value after sending keys in katalon 5.6.0

Hello All,

I would like to select autocomplete suggested value whenever I send the keys to that field.

Please refer the attached screen shots for source code and error messages


  • Open url
  • When sending keys “AUSY”, Autocomplete field suggesting some list (ex: AUSY_FR, AUSY_TEST2, AUSY_TEST3, AUSY_RECETTE, AUSY).
  • In the list, I want to click AUSY to select the right value
  • To do that I’ve created a keyword like below

def selectAutocompleteValue(String ele_xpath, String texttoSelect){
WebDriver driver =DriverFactory.getWebDriver()
List dropdown_menu=driver.findElements(By.xpath(ele_xpath))

	for(WebElement element:dropdown_menu){
		String innerhtml=element.getAttribute("innerHTML")
		System.out.println("Values from autocomplete fields is =======" +innerhtml)

Then I wrote the below test code, to send the keys on that field.

WebUI.sendKeys(findTestObject(‘Object Repository/Page_User_Mgmt/Step1_CreateUser_Info/txt_OrganizationName’), GlobalVariable.G_Create_User_NonOEM, FailureHandling.STOP_ON_FAILURE)

CustomKeywords.‘com.sgds.util.WebDriverHelper.selectAutocompleteValue’(“.//a[@class=‘ui-corner-all’]”, ‘AUSY’ )


But, I’m getting the below errors.

I’m not able to perform the action what I want. The application just showing the list. So next step got failed with the below message:

Unable to select option by label ‘Mr.’ of object ‘Object Repository/Page_User_Mgmt/Step1_CreateUser_Info/drpDown_Title’ (Root cause: org.openqa.selenium.ElementClickInterceptedException: Element


Your if statement does not make sense with innerhtml.equalsIgnoreCase. As the result, the for loop clicked all the elements and it caused unexpected behavior.

Title is another dropdown list which is different from the Organization name (may be). The error message mentioned that there is another element appear on top of your element. You have to verify the reason and why that element appeared.
