How to click an element using actions class in Selenium?

Selenium provides a comprehensive range of solutions for automation testing. Out of these features, one of the most used features is the testing of upload files. This can also be tested with different programming languages, however here we will discuss it using PHP Unit.

There is input type "file" element present in the DOM. The user only require to locate the element and enter the file path which is needed to be uploaded, as below:

$this->value([type="file"], 'path to file');

In this code, first parameter is CSS locator which can differ as per the web page and the second argument is file path.

In addition to this, keys() function can also be used instead of value() like below,

$this->click('CSS Locator');

$this->keys('path to file');
