Steps to reproduce

For Edge 38.14393.0.0 version, MoveToElement function moving to wrong coordinates

I am using below details:
1: Selenium Standalone Server 3.3.1 -> RemoteWebDriver

2: C# Client Lib 3.3.0

3: Microsoft Edge Driver from https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/tools/webdriver/ -> Release 14393

4: Remote WebDriver Capability Details are as follows:
_capabilities = DesiredCapabilities.Edge();
_capabilities.SetCapability(CapabilityType.BrowserName, “MicrosoftEdge”);
_capabilities.SetCapability(CapabilityType.Platform, “WIN10”);
_capabilities.SetCapability(CapabilityType.AcceptSslCertificates, true);
_capabilities.SetCapability(CapabilityType.HasNativeEvents, true);
_capabilities.SetCapability(CapabilityType.IsJavaScriptEnabled, true);
EdgeOptions edgeOptions = new EdgeOptions();
edgeOptions.AddAdditionalCapability("ignoreZoomSetting", true);
edgeOptions.PageLoadStrategy = EdgePageLoadStrategy.Normal;
_capabilities = (DesiredCapabilities)edgeOptions.ToCapabilities();

6: Please find attached screenshot for my Browser Version Details.

7: Code To Execute:

public void MouseHoverByJavaScript(IWebElement targetElement)
string javaScript = “var evObj = document.createEvent(‘MouseEvents’);” +
"evObj.initMouseEvent(“mouseover",true, false, window, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, false, false, false, false, 0, null);” +
IJavaScriptExecutor js = custumDriver as IJavaScriptExecutor;
js.ExecuteScript(javaScript, targetElement);

  • Hi Sachin,

    I want to clarify the issue you are reporting.  Are you reporting that the script does not execute or as you mentioned in the first sentence of the repro only that you are getting the wrong coordinates.  I believe it is only the coordinates but wanted to verify because of the title of this bug report.

    Also, are you still seeing this issue with the 3.4.0 selenium standalone server?  If you have not attempted to repro in the 3.40 version please do and let us know.

    Appreciate the help and the support,
