How to select a drop-down menu value with Selenium using Python?

Selenium provides a convenient Select class to work with select -> option constructs:

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.support.ui import Select

driver = webdriver.Firefox()
driver.get(url)

select = Select(driver.find_element_by_id(fruits01))

# select by visible text
select.select_by_visible_text(Banana)

# select by value 
select.select_by_value(1)

Unless your click is firing some kind of ajax call to populate your list, you dont actually need to execute the click.

Just find the element and then enumerate the options, selecting the option(s) you want.

Here is an example:

from selenium import webdriver
b = webdriver.Firefox()
b.find_element_by_xpath(//select[@name=element_name]/option[text()=option_text]).click()
