getAllSelectedOptions( ) command is used to retrieve the list of options that are currently selected in the Multi-Selection Box field.Suppose if more than one option is selected in the Multi-Selection Box field, we can use getAllSelectedOptions( ) command to retrieve those selected options.Test Description:Implement the below steps:1. Open http://compendiumdev.co.uk/selenium/basic_html_form.html page2. Deselect all the list options from the Multi-Selection Box field using deselectAll( ) command3. Clear the Text Area field using clear( ) command4. Select three list options ‘Selection Item 1’, ‘Selection Item 2’ and ‘Selection Item 3’ using selectByVisibleText( ) command5. Retrieve the list options selected in step 4 using getAllSelectedOptions( ) command6. Extract the label texts of the retrieved list options using getText() command.7. Enter the extracted label texts into the ‘Text Area Comment’ text area field using sendKeys( ) commandAlso look into the comments provided on the below screenshot to understand the Test Description:
Lets Implement the Test on Eclipse IDE:Pre-requisites:1. Create a new Java Project say ‘WebDriver-Project67’ in Eclipse IDE2. Configure the Project to work with Selenium WebDriver3. Create a package say ‘package67’ under the newly created project.4. Create a Java Class file say ‘Class67’ under the newly created package as shown below:
Actual Steps:1. Write the following code into the newly created Java Class file as shown below and make sure that you resolve all the errors before going to next step:
2. Create a test method ‘getAllSelectedOptionsDemo()’ as shown below:
3. Create a Select Class object for Multi-Selection Box field as shown below:
4. Deselect all the list options in the Multi-Selection Box field as shown below:
5. Select the list options ‘Selection Item1’, ‘Selection Item 2’ and ‘Selection Item 3’ from the Multi-Selection Box field as shown below:
6. Clear the Text Area field as shown below:
7. Retrieve the list options that are currently selected in the Multi-Selection Box field using getAllSelectedOptions( ) and assign them to List type variable as shown below:
8. Using for loop for extracting label text of each and every retrieved list option one by one and entering the extracted label text into Text Area field for confirmation:
9. Save and Run the ‘Class67.java’ file by selecting the ‘JUnit Test’ option and ensure that our Automation Test has retrieved all the list options that are selected in the multi-selection box field, extracted their label text and entered the extracted label texts into the Text Area field as shown in the below video:Watch the below video:Click here to watch the video.Download this Project:
