How To Get X Y Coordinates Of Element In Selenium WebDriver

Any software web element has Its own position on page and generally It Is measured In x and y pixels and known as x y coordinates of element. x pixels means horizontal position on page from left side and y pixels means vertical position on software web page from top side. You can find x y coordinates of any element
very easily using some tool. In min time, You can view more related tutorials on THIS PAGE.

In selenium webdriver software testing tool, You can get x y coordinates of element using Point class. I have created simple example to demonstrate you how to get x y coordinates of any Image on software page. We will learn how to get element size In next post.

package Testing_Pack;

import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.Point;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
import org.testng.annotations.BeforeTest;
import org.testng.annotations.Test;

public class xyCoordinates {
 WebDriver driver;
 public void setup() throws Exception {
  driver =new FirefoxDriver();     
  driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(10, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
 public void getCoordinates() throws Exception {
  //Locate element for which you wants to retrieve x y coordinates.
        WebElement Image = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//img[@border='0']"));
        //Used points class to get x and y coordinates of element.
        Point point = Image.getLocation();
        int xcord = point.getX();
        System.out.println("Element's Position from left side Is "+xcord +" pixels.");
        int ycord = point.getY();
        System.out.println("Element's Position from top side Is "+ycord +" pixels.");

When you run above example In eclipse, It will print bellow given result In console.
Element's Position from left side Is 76 pixels.
Element's Position from top side Is 740 pixels.

This way you can find x y coordinates of any element In selenium software test and use It whenever required. This thing can help you to perform pixel to pixel testing using selenium webdriver.

We can use  X Y Coordinates Of Element to capture element's screen shot as described In THIS POST.


  1. Hey Raja,

    thanks for posting.

    But what if I dont know the structure of the web and
    I want the the coordinates of all objects of the page...

    Thank you,

    1. Then you should get all different kind of elements present on the page.. like links labels, etc and then can apply this logic of getting location and then respective cordinates

  2. This does not work when we have window scrollbar enabled.
