I am converting my selenium 1 code to selenium 2 and can't find any easy way to select a label in a drop down menu or get the selected value of a drop down. Do you know how to do that in Selenium 2?
Here are two statements that work in Selenium 1 but not in 2:
To select an option based on the label:
Select select = new Select(driver.findElement(By.xpath("//path_to_drop_down"))); select.deselectAll(); select.selectByVisibleText("Value1");
To get the first selected value:
WebElement option = select.getFirstSelectedOption()
