How To Use Selenium to Upload a File?

To test upload files using Selenium can be done using various programming languages, however, here we are taking an example of Selenium with PHPUnit. Selenium may be used with PHPUnit for performing automation for this particular scenario.

We need to locate an input type "file" element which is present in DOM and enter the file path where we need to upload like below,

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

In this, the first parameter is CSS locator which can be different as per the web page and the second argument is the file path where we need to upload.

We can also use keys() function instead of value() as below,

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

If you have any other questions or concerns about the Selenium web driver or are in general need of QA resources, contact QASource's testing experts.
