I want to get the selected label or value of a drop-down using Selenium WebDriver and then print it on the console.
I am able to select any value from the drop-down, but I am not able to retrieve the selected value and print it:
Select select = new Select(driver.findElement(By.id("MyDropDown"))).selectByVisibleText(data.substring(1 , data.length()-1));
WebElement option = select.getFirstSelectedOption();
But all my efforts were in vain. How do I get the selected option?
