We have a new name! Browserbear is now Roborabbit

How do I select an item from a dropdown menu?

If the page has a dropdown menu, you can use Browserbear's Dropdown action to open the menu and select an item.

  1. Head to your Task
  2. Add the Dropdown action
  3. Use the Browserbear Helper to select the dropdown field element and copy the Xpath data to the Helper field
  4. Under Choice, enter the option you want to select (in plain text) from the dropdown
  5. Save

Note: The Dropdown action is only compatible with <select> elements. If you're experiencing the following error "locator.selectOption: Error: Element is not a <select> element", this means the dropdown isn't a <select> element.

Non <select> elements may require two separate Click actions; one to activate the dropdown and another select the choice from the list.
