static Dropdown with Select

WebElement staticDropdown = driver.findElement(By.id("ctl00_mainContent_DropDownListCurrency"));

Select dropdown = new Select(staticDropdown);

dropdown.selectByIndex(3);        Assert.assertEquals(dropdown.getFirstSelectedOption().getText(),"USD");

driver.findElement(By.id("divpaxinfo")).click();
//add an wait
Thread.sleep(2000L);
// click 6 times on a button
for (int i = 1; i < 6; i++){
            driver.findElement(By.id("hrefIncAdt")).click();
        }
Assert.assertEquals(driver.findElement(By.id("spanAudlt")).getText(), "6");

clicking on a special text

// start input in input field
driver.findElement(By.id("autosuggest")).sendKeys("ind");

Checkboxes

Assert.assertFalse(driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("[id*='SeniorCitizenDiscount']")).isSelected());

driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("[id*='SeniorCitizenDiscount']")).click();   

Assert.assertTrue(driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("[id*='SeniorCitizenDiscount']")).isSelected());

count checkboxes

System.out.println(driver.findElements(By.cssSelector("#discount-checkbox input[type='checkbox']")).size());

check is element is enabled, selected or displayed

isEnabled(); 
//This method checks if an element is enabled. Returns true if enabled, else false for disabled.
isSelected();

isDisplayed();  
//This method checks if element is displayed. In this recipe, we will use some of these methods to check the status and handle

check, if opacity is reduced (nudging to other buttons)

System.out.println(driver.findElement(By.id("Div1")).getAttribute("style").contains("opacity: 0.5"));
driver.findElement(By.id("ctl00_mainContent_rbtnl_Trip_1")).click();
System.out.println(driver.findElement(By.id("Div1")).isEnabled());

 if (driver.findElement(By.id("Div1")).getAttribute("style").contains("opacity: 1")) {
   System.out.println("Calender enabled");
   Assert.assertTrue(true);
   } else {

//Grab common attribute of dates and put it into list and iterate

        for (int i = 0; i < days.size(); i ++){
           if( days.get(i).getText().equalsIgnoreCase("23"))
            {
