I've been trying to fill input:

<input id="PASSFIELD1" class="logField" type="password" onkeyup="next(this, event);" maxlength="1" autocomplete="off" name="PASSFIELD1"></input>

To do this, I have to find this element.

I tried below things:

  1. pass1=driver.find_element_by_name("PASSFIELD1")

  2. pass1=driver.find_element_by_id("PASSFIELD1")

  3. pass1= driver.find_element_by_xpath("/html/body/div[4]/div/div/div[2]/div/form/div[3]/table/tbody/tr[3]/td[2]/div/input[1]") (path from firebug)

  4. Even wait 100 seconds for it



I always get:

selenium.common.exceptions.NoSuchElementException: Message: 'Unable to locate element: (...)

Do you know what I am doing wrong?

 The problem is that your input tag is inside an iframe, you need to switch to(Method which gives you access to switch frames and windows) it first:

frame = driver.find_element_by_xpath('//frame[@name="main"]') driver.switch_to.frame(frame) pass1 = driver.find_element_by_id("PASSFIELD1")

I hope this helps!
