I'm working with Selenium in Python. I would like to get the .val() of an <select> element and check that it is what I expect.

This is my code:

def test_chart_renders_from_url(self):

    url = 'http://localhost:8000/analyse/'

    self.browser.get(url)

    org = driver.find_element_by_id('org')

    # Find the value of org?

How can I do this? The Selenium docs seem to have plenty about selecting elements but nothing about attributes.

For this get_attribute(name) might do the job

For get_attribute here is an example through which you will get to know how to implement

def test_chart_renders_from_url(self):

    url = 'http://localhost:8000/analyse/'

    self.browser.get(url)

    org = driver.find_element_by_id('org')

    # Find the value of org?

    val = org.get_attribute("attribute name")

Refer: https://selenium-python.readthedocs.io/api.html#selenium.webdriver.remote.webelement.WebElement.get_attribute
