Note : If any runtime error occurred by running our downloaded project meaning of that your browser version and Selenium API DLL version is not matching. To resolve this issue you need to download latest Selenium C# API DLLs from this link and paste downloaded DLLs into 'Bin' folder of downloaded project. Or you can remove references of existing DLLs references and add new DLLs references. You can learn this thing from this link.


Using selenium C# webdriver API we are able to insert text in website textbox element automatically in web browser. This article is very useful for automate website testing.

To enter text in textbox we need locator string of that particular textbox. To get locator string you need to your FireFox Element Locator Add-on.

Here is example for insert text in textbox automatically:
In this example first we open website 'www.google.com'. After that, we locate search textbox using locator add-on. Now in C# code we create object of FireFoxDriver Class.

We are using 'FindElement' method of 'FireFoxDriver' Class object, in this object we are finding element using 'XPath'. We are using 'OpenQA.Selenium.By.XPath' method. After finding element we are using 'SendKeys' method to insert text in textbox.

In 'SendKeys' method's parameter pass your desire text or string. This method exist in 'OpenQA.Selenium.IWebDriver.ISearchContext.FindElement' class.

Selenium C# Code :

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using Selenium;
using OpenQA;

public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
{
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {

        OpenQA.Selenium.IWebDriver objFF = new OpenQA.Selenium.Firefox.FirefoxDriver();
        objFF.Navigate();
        objFF.Url = "http://www.google.com";
        objFF.FindElement(OpenQA.Selenium.By.XPath("//input[@id='gbqfq']")).SendKeys("ASP.NET");
                
    }
}
