Combo box selected value

See original GitHub issue

When I,m trying to get the selected value from a combo box it is throwing an error like “unsupported command exception”. I used the following code.

Select locatoin = new Select(driver.findElement("cmbLocation"))); String option = locatoin .getFirstSelectedOption().getText();

What are the other possible ways to get the selected option?

I had a similar issue but at the end, I managed to get the selected value from a combo-box with the below code:

ComboBox comboBox = new ComboBox(anElement); String value = comboBox.getAttribute("Name");

Hope this helps!

public void select_combo_by_id(String ID,String select_text){ WebElement env_combo = driver.findElement(; ComboBox debs_combo = new ComboBox(env_combo); debs_combo.expand(); driver.findElement(; }
