Part 1: Handling Drop-down Created Using SELECT Tag In Selenium

  • You need to select desire year first from drop down.
  • You need to wait till months are loaded in month’s drop down.
  • Select desire month from month drop down.
  • Now select desired day from calendar.

Java Code:


Selected Date: 09/23/2018


  • You can customize above logic as per your requirement.

  • You can also add some validation if desired year/month/day is not valid/available.

Hope above must must have helped you.
