Is there any way in either Selenium 1.x or 2.x to scroll the browser window so that a particular element identified by an XPath is in view of the browser? There is a focus method in Selenium, but it does not seem to physically scroll the view in FireFox. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this?

The reason I need this is I'm testing the click of an element on the page. Unfortunately, the event doesn't seem to work unless the element is visible. I don't have control of the code that fires when the element is clicked, so I can't debug or make modifications to it, so, the easiest solution, scroll the item into view.

Use the class org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Actions to move to an element.

WebElement element = driver.findElement("my-id"));

Actions actions = new Actions(driver);
