What is Actions Class in Selenium WebDriver?

  • An API that simulates complex Keyboard events and mouse operations.
  • We can build a series of actions using the Action Interface and Actions Class. This process is widely known as Action Chaining.

  • Implementation of Actions class for mouse operations using Selenium WebDriver
  • Automating mouse hover operations
  • Automating drag and drop objects on webpages
  • Automation of resizable elements on webpages
  • Automating context click (right-click) and double click
  • Working with Sliders (slider bars) on webpages
  • Automating multiple key operations (Ex. TAB + F1)

Bonus Sessions:
