How to open a browser in selenium using c#?

In this post we will discuss writing some simple code with Selenium C# in Visual Studio . In the last post we referenced our Selenium WebDriver via Nuget package manager in our project. Please read my previous post to get started with selenium referencing in Visual Studio.

Same way we need to add our browser reference.

Once you are done with setup (referencing), you are all set you write a simple code:

//Create the reference for our browser
IWebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();

//Navigate to google page

//Find the Search text box UI Element
IWebElement element = driver.FindElement(By.Name("q"));

//Perform Ops

//Close the browser

In Above code we have :

  1. Created an instance for IWebDriver and got the instance for ChromeDriver
  2. Navigate to Google home page
  3. Found the Search textbox of google home page
  4. Searched for execute automation by typing the text.
  5. Close the driver instance (which closes the chrome browser)
