Dragging and dropping a Widget control in a web page can be done using Selenium advanced interactions namespace (package in Java), here is the fully qualified namespace using OpenQA.Selenium.Interactions; This can be done using Actions class. The Actions class has different methods like ClickAndHold, MoveToElement, Click etc as shown. Well, in order to drag and drop a Element from one location to another, its always a wise idea to specify the destination Element where the source element has to be moved, since specifying the co-ordinate will always end-up having miserable results. To do so following has to be done
  1. Hold the source
  2. Move the element
  3. Release the element
Hence the coding will look like this
Actions action = new Actions(driver);
IAction dragdrop = action.ClickAndHold(element).MoveToElement(toElement).Release(toElement).Build();
This does exactly what we are expecting, the drag and drop operation. Thanks, Karthik KK
