I am still learning and in response to one of my questions: here, I was told that it might be due because the element in question is not in view.

I looked through the documentation and SO, here was the most relevant answer: here

You can use the "org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Actions" class to move to an element:

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

Actions actions = new Actions(driver);

actions.moveToElement(element);

## actions.click();

actions.perform();

When I try to use the above to scroll to the element: It says WebElement not defined.

I think this is because I have not imported the relevant module. Can someone point out what I am supposed to import?

Edit: is pointed out by alecxe, this was java code.

But in the meantime right after trying to figure it out for some time. I have found out the import method for WebElement:

from selenium.webdriver.remote.webelement import WebElement

Might help someone like me.

The how of it is also a good lesson, IMO:

Went to: Documentation The

class selenium.webdriver.remote.webelement.WebElement(parent, id_, w3c=False)

Need to be separated into the command form mentioned above.

You can try using JavaScriptExecutor interface that helps to execute JavaScript methods through Selenium Webdriver to scroll using Selenium.

Learn more about JavaScriptExecutor

Syntax :

JavascriptExecutor js = (JavascriptExecutor) driver;  

 js.executeScript(Script,Arguments);

Script: the JavaScript that needs to execute.

Arguments: the arguments to the script. It's optional.
