    There are different ways of handling this, based on the type of dropdowns.
    • Dropdowns that support search: The option to be selected can be sent as input and click on the search button. The element is displayed in the dropdown and click enter to select the option.
    • Dropdowns that support recording of options directly: In this case record the option that must be selected and the same will be selected when the task is executed.
    • You can also send keys to select the required option from the dropdown using send string or by writing a selenium custom expression in python.
