I want to pass keys in automations like (Control+W)
You could use sendkeys method for doing that. For example: driver.find_element_by_tag_name(‘body’).send_keys(Keys.CONTROL + ‘w’)
Another method that you can use is ActionChains(). It is used to automate low-level interactions for automation testing with Selenium, such as key press, mouse button actions, etc.
For example, In order to refresh the webpage, we make use of the ‘CTRL + F5’ combination.
import time from selenium import webdriver from selenium.webdriver.common.action_chains import ActionChains from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys '''Creation of Firefox Webdriver ''' # driver = webdriver.Chrome() driver = webdriver.Firefox() driver.get("https://www.lambdatest.com/") time.sleep(5) print("Before refresh") ActionChains(driver) \ .key_down(Keys.CONTROL) \ .send_keys(Keys.F5) \ .key_up(Keys.CONTROL) \ .perform() print("After refresh") sleep(5) driver.quit()
The main advantage of using this is that you can automate any combination of keyboard/mouse press/click, whatsoever.
