How to do flash Testing using Selenium WebDriver?

Flash testing is not normal automation testing.

Flash is not part of HTML webpage. Its embed object on HTML webpage.

So its not possible to get xpath of element on the flash movie / flash.

Selenium RC has extension FlexUISelenium  that enables the Selenium RC client drivers to interact (and test) the Flex UI components and methods of the Flex application.

you can download jar and include them into project and get functions to communicate with Flash. flash-selenium.jar

But there is not any extension available for Selenium Webdriver

So we do smart work here. We rewrite for selenium Webdriver.

import org.openqa.selenium.JavascriptExecutor;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;

public class FlashSeleniumWebDriver {
 private final WebDriver webDriver;
 private final String flash_ObjectId;

//constructor for FlashSeleniumWebDriver
 public FlashSeleniumWebDriver(final WebDriver webDriver, final String flash_ObjectId) {

//initialize webDriver variable to use in this class methods
 this.webDriver = webDriver;

 //initialize flashObjectId variable which have real flash object ID to use in this class methods
 this.flash_ObjectId = flash_ObjectId;

public String call(final String functionName, final String... args) {

 final Object result =
 makeJavaScriptFunction(functionName, args),
 new Object[0]);

return result != null ? result.toString() : null;

private String makeJavaScriptFunction(final String function_Name, final String... args) {
 final StringBuffer function_Args = new StringBuffer();

if (args.length > 0) {
 for (int i = 0; i < args.length; i++) {
 if (i > 0) {
 function_Args.append(String.format("'%1$s'", args[i]));
 return String.format(
 "return document.%1$s.%2$s(%3$s);",
