How to switch between frames in Selenium WebDriver using Java


I am using java with WebDriver.I have to switch between two frames. I have recorded the test case in selenium IDE and in that I got the values as selectFrame relative=top select Frame=middle Frame

But there is a problem it is not able to recognize the relative=top and middleFrame. How can I solve this problem in Selenium WebDriver with Java?

WebDriver’s driver.switchTo().frame() method takes one of the three possible arguments:

  • A number.

    Select a frame by its (zero-based) index. That is, if a page has three
    frames, the first frame would be at index 0, the second at index 1
    and the third at index 2. Once the frame has been selected, all
    subsequent calls on the WebDriver interface are made to that frame.

  • A name or ID.

    Select a frame by its name or ID. Frames located by matching name
    attributes are always given precedence over those matched by ID.

  • A previously found WebElement.

    Select a frame using its previously located WebElement.

Get the frame by it’s id/name or locate it by driver.findElement() and you’ll be good.
