Handling OnChange events using Selenium webdriver and Java script

In this post I will discuss about onchange events.

What is onchange event?
The onchange event occurs when the value of an element has been changed.
For radiobuttons and checkboxes, the onchange event occurs when the checked state has been changed.

onChange specifies script code to run when the data in the input field changes. The onChange event is triggered when the contents of the field changes.

In this example if you type some thing in Quantity filed and click on anywhere on the page it will automatically update Total.

We can handle onchange events in different ways.

1. After entering quantity we can simulate clicking TAB button. But this is approach will not work always.

2. By using Java script we can trigger onchange event.

Using Java script to trigger onchange event...

((JavascriptExecutor)driver).executeScript("arguments[0].onchange()", driver.findElement(By.name("vn_qty")));

Below is the sample script.
