Is there a more efficient way for targeting button clicks in Selenium web automation besides Xpath?

According to selenium best practices, locators should be preferred in the order of id, name, css, and xpath. Mozilla suggests the use of IDs, while Saucelabs recommends CSS locators over XPath and slideshare provides a comparison of the two. A benchmark and a video by Simon Stewart also discuss CSS versus XPath. Additionally, it has been suggested that using changeable attributes for locating elements can cause flaky tests, thus it is important to collaborate with developers to create reliable locators.


Solution:

The phrase “1-Click Apply” in your text is not appropriate for the “title” attribute. You may need to modify your xpath to the following:

//button[text()="1-Click Apply"]

.
