I am using Selenium WebDriver and Java and I need to automate the file upload feature. I tried a lot, but the moment the Browse button is clicked and a new window opens the script stops executing further and rather getting stuck. I tried in both FireFox and IE driver but to no avail.

I tried also by calling an AutoIt exe file, but as the new window opens on click of Browse button, the particular statement

Runtime.getRuntime().exec("C:\\Selenium\\ImageUpload_FF.exe")

couldn't be exeuted. Kindly help

The following code should work with Firefox, Chrome and IE Web Drivers.

FirefoxDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();

driver.get("http://localhost:8080/page");

File file = null;

try {

    file = new File(YourClass.class.getClassLoader().getResource("file.txt").toURI());

} catch (URISyntaxException e) {

    e.printStackTrace();

}

Assert.assertTrue(file.exists()); 

WebElement browseButton = driver.findElement(By.id("myfile"));

browseButton.sendKeys(file.getAbsolutePath());

I hope this helps!
