Pressing Ctrl + a in Selenium Webdriver

Pressing Ctrl + A in Selenium WebDriver

One more solution (in Java, because you didn't tell us your language - but it works the same way in all languages with Keys class):

String selectAll = Keys.chord(Keys.CONTROL, "a");

You can use this to select the whole text in an <input>, or on the whole page (just find the html element and send this to it).

For using Selenium Ruby bindings:

There's no chord() method in the Keys class in Ruby bindings. Therefore, as suggested by Hari Reddy, you'll have to use Selenium Advanced user interactions API, see ActionBuilder:


How to press Ctrl+A to select all content in a page by Selenium WebDriver using Java

To select the whole page:

driver.findElement(By.xpath("//body")).sendKeys(Keys.chord(Keys.CONTROL, "a"));

cssSelector is faster than xpath. So it could be done by using CSSPath also. Below is the way:

driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("body")).sendKeys(Keys.chord(Keys.CONTROL, "a"));
