    Try taking a look at this code. Pay attention to getAttribute method of WebElement

    InternetExplorerDriver idriver = new InternetExplorerDriver();

    idriver.findElementByName(“q”).sendKeys(“Cucumber selenium”);

    System.out.println(“Text value is ” + idriver.findElementByName(“q”).getAttribute(“value”));

    Hi Virender,

    Thanks for your suggestion, it works.

    how about IF the element is iframe, it is a wysiwyg text area, how to get the text entered

    // Enter text for Message field
    public static WebElement txt_keyInMessage() throws Exception{
    WebElement iframeMsg= driver.findElement(By.xpath("//*[contains(@class, 'wysiwyg_frame')]"));
    driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(15, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
    element = driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("body"));
    }catch (Exception e){
    return element;

    iframe html

    <iframe class="wysiwyg_frame" frameborder="0" src="" style="width: 100%; height: 100%;" title="Rich Text Editor, contact_remarks" aria-describedby="cke_30" tabindex="0" allowtransparency="true">
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en" dir="ltr">
    <body class="cke_editable cke_editable_themed cke_contents_ltr cke_show_borders" contenteditable="true" spellcheck="false">
    hello, pls contact me once you received this message

    eg. text entered here is
    “hello, pls contact me once you received this message”
    but in iframe wysiwyg text area, it don’t have ‘value’ type
    please advice, thanks.

    Switch to iFrame and then do gettext() for the element “body”

    Try this

    String element = driver.findElement(By.xpath(“//*[@class=’cke_editable cke_editable_themed cke_contents_ltr cke_show_borders’]/p”)).getText();
