    Drop Down And Multi-Select list is the set of HTML fields that we commonly interact with.So, In order to handle drop-down and multi-select list with Selenium WebDriver, it is essential to use Select class, It is the Webdriver class which is the part of the selenium package, provides the implementation of the HTML SELECT tag.

    We need to Import the below package.

    Select is an ordinary class, so it’s object is also created by a New keyword with regular class creation syntax.
    Standard syntax of Select Class is as:-

    For a better understanding on using the <Select> class, refer at the below Java code.

    WebDriver provides three ways to select an option from the drop-down menu. So, once you have initialized the <Select> object then, you can access all the methods used on the drop-down and Multi-Select list.

    Types of Select Methods:

    1. selectByVisibleText Method
    2. selectByIndex Method
    3. selectByValue Method
