Locating a button not working


I attempt to locate this button “Place Order” using  XPath and other locating format but it does not work.

WebElement click = driver.findElement (By.xpath(“/html/body/div[2]/div/div[7]/div/form/section/fieldset[1]/div/div[2]/div/input”));

Here is another code I tried to use…

WebElement PlaceOrderDiv = driver.findElement (By.className(“summary”));
//WebElement checkoutForm = checkoutDiv.findElement(By.tagName(“form”));
WebElement PlaceOrderButton = PlaceOrderDiv.findElement(By.tagName(“input”));

Nothing happens. No error come up. This make sit more difficult..

    Hi Ayo,

    Try using submit() rather then click(). As it is a button and sometimes click does not work on buttons. Please close the question if it is resolved.

    Hi Jbfannie,

    Try with the following 🙂

    driver.findElement(By.linkText(“Place Order”)).sendKeys(Keys.ENTER);

    I am writing an example in detail. I hope that solve your problem.

    <form id=”loginForm”>
    <input name=”username” type=”text” />
    <input name=”password” type=”password” />
    <input name=”continue” type=”submit” value=”Login” />
    <input name=”continue” type=”button” value=”Clear” />

    Locating by Name ==>

    webelement continue = driver.find_element_by_name(‘continue’)
