Setting the Selected Option in a Select with Selenium in Scala

Almost a perfect bit of alliteration there in that title - right? Anyway I've been doing a bit of work with bare-metal Selenium stuff in Scala recently and one of the things that kept me stumped for a while was setting the selected option for a particular select element.

I looked around the interwebs and didn't really find anything - now I'm not saying it isn't out there, I am certain it is, but I couldn't find it. So I decided to document how I did it in case any lone sole is stuck in a similar situation...


So here I am simply finding the second option of the "year" select element and setting it selected. I know it looks obvious now but trust me I was scratching my head for an age on this one.

I hope it helps some one, eventually :)
