How to drag and drop an element to location specified by X, Y coordinate using selenium

Drag and drop is now common functionality across many web applications for interactive user interface and easy upload. 

To automate drag and drop in your automation test script, selenium provides a class called Actions for interactive actions.

1. Launch
2. Drag and release the element an X=250 and Y= 10 Pixels.

To automate the above scenario using Selenium Webdriver , we would need to use dragAndHold(WebElement element) function of selenium library.


package seleniumInteractive;

import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.interactions.Actions;

public class DragAndDrop {

	static {
		System.setProperty("", "Chrome driver location");

	public static void main(String[] args) {

		WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();
		WebElement element = driver.findElement("draggable"));
		Actions action = new Actions(driver);
		action.clickAndHold(element).moveByOffset(250, 10).build().perform();
