Finding nested iFrame using Selenium 2

0
0

I am writing tests for a legacy application in which there is an iFrame within the main document, and then another iFrame within that. So the hierarchy is:

Html Div (id = tileSpace)
iFrame
(id = ContentContainer)
iFrame
(id = Content)
Elements

This is my code (I am using C#)

RemoteWebDriver driver = new InternetExplorerDriver();
var tileSpace = driver.FindElement(By.Id("tileSpace"));
var firstIFrame = tileSpace.FindElement(By.Id("ContentContainer"));
var contentIFrame = firstIFrame.FindElement(By.Id("Content"));

The problem is, I am unable to reach the 2nd level iFrame i.e. contentIFrame

Any ideas?

I’m currently testing on a similar website. (nested iframes inside the main document)

<div>
<iframe>
<iframe><iframe/>
<iframe/>
</div>

It seems that you are not using the frame switching method provided in Api. This could be the problem.

Here is what I’m doing, it works fine for me.

//make sure it is in the main document right now
driver
.SwitchTo().DefaultContent();
//find the outer frame, and use switch to frame method
IWebElement containerFrame = driver.FindElement(By.Id("ContentContainer"));
driver
.SwitchTo().Frame(containerFrame);
//you are now in iframe "ContentContainer", then find the nested iframe inside
IWebElement contentFrame = driver.FindElement(By.Id("Content"));
driver
.SwitchTo().Frame(contentFrame);
//you are now in iframe "Content", then find the elements you want in the nested frame now
IWebElement foo = driver.FindElement(By.Id("foo"));
