unable to load file using python selenium
#1
Hi All,
I am trying to upload any dummy file from any arbitrary path but this is not working. I have removed driver.close() ,juts to check my file is uploaded or not .

Please change the path of file which you want to upload and I am opening generic site.


from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys

#Getting local session of Chrome
driver=webdriver.Chrome()

#put here the adress of your page
driver.get("https://files.fm/")
#put here the content you have put in Notepad, ie the XPath


	
#elem=driver.find_elements_by_xpath( '//*[@id="tsf"]/div[2]/div[3]/center/input[1]')############### this is one of name 
#elem.send_keys("google search through python")

'''for e in elem:
    e.send_keys("google search through python")'''
elem2=driver.find_element_by_id('file_upload').send_keys("C:\\Users\\pubhatia\\Documents\\learning\\python\\call_url.py")
print(elem2)
##driver.close()
Output:
DevTools listening on ws://127.0.0.1:12670/devtools/browser/9a8e734d-27a3-490f-ac0f-521545234943 None
Please confirm what is wrong in this code

Also can some one explain the meaning of this output

My suspection here that your not find the "file_upload" element.

elem2=driver.find_element_by_id('file_upload')
print(elem2)
elem2.send_keys("C:\\Users\\pubhatia\\Documents\\learning\\python\\call_url.py")
Can you try this code? What does it print?

Hi hashivaraj,

I tried what u have mentioned and as per my understanding it is working fine. Please correct me if I am wrong .

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys

#Getting local session of Chrome
driver=webdriver.Chrome()

#put here the adress of your page
driver.get("https://files.fm/")
#put here the content you have put in Notepad, ie the XPath


	
#elem=driver.find_elements_by_xpath( '//*[@id="tsf"]/div[2]/div[3]/center/input[1]')############### this is one of name 
#elem.send_keys("google search through python")

'''for e in elem:
    e.send_keys("google search through python")'''
#elem2=driver.find_element_by_id('file_upload').send_keys("C:\\Users\\pubhatia\\Documents\\learning\\python\\call_url.py")
#print(elem2)


elem2=driver.find_element_by_id('file_upload')
print(elem2)
elem2.send_keys("C:\\Users\\pubhatia\\Documents\\learning\\python\\call_url.py")
driver.close()


      
Output:
DevTools listening on ws://127.0.0.1:12834/devtools/browser/3cfbab60-fd17-4582-979f-5cc172054f54 <selenium.webdriver.remote.webelement.WebElement (session="498744c3b6f8c6219d4f6c85c11e66e2", element="0.4471727654327058-1")>

Ok that looking good. This means that you did manage to find the element and then you did manage to upload path.
But you seem to close the webdriver. I would suggest that you seen send an "ENTER" key for upload the file path you want to upload

builder = Actions(driver);
builder.keyDown(Keys.ENTRE).perform()
I haven't tested the code. That was such and idea. Lookup the selenium doc.
