Unable to use the ENTER OR TAB key with send keys

I’m trying to Enter some values in the input box and after this in need to press Enter or Tab key but for some reason Enter key or Tab key not working for me.


WebUI.setText(findTestObject(‘input’), ‘Active’)

WebUI.sendKeys(findTestObject(‘input’), Keys.chord(Keys.TAB))

WebUI.sendKeys(findTestObject(‘input’), Keys.chord(Keys.ENTER))

With set setText function im send the data as “Active” and the with the sendkey try to press the Tab key or Enter ki please check the above code and explain why its not working or there any bug with Enter key or Tab key

if you want to fire action that is bind on lost focus try to shift it using WebUI.focus() to next element.

Are you running into an error? Is the SendKeys failing, or just not placing text in the correct object?

WebUI.sendKeys(findTestObject('Input'), Keys.chord('Text String',Keys.ENTER,Keys.TAB)) 

You also need the:

import org.openqa.selenium.Keys as Keys

Thank you so much I have already solve the problem it is basically hit the enter outside the text box

Could you please share code, I am also facing the same problem. Not able to select the element by entering the key.

Hi Shwetha sorry for the late reply you are able to solve it ? or still need help ?

Hello @Andrej_Podhajsky,

I actually want to fire an action that bind on lost focus, is passing the focus to the next object the only solution to do so? In this case what will happened when I’l get to the last text field? :thinking:

In advance thanks :wink:
