Use Selenium to Upload a File to SharePoint

I created a Visual Studio console app.
Added the Selenium WebDriver and the Selenium Chome WebDriver Nuget packages

using OpenQA.Selenium;
using OpenQA.Selenium.Chrome;
using OpenQA.Selenium.Support.UI;

namespace SeleniumUpload
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            //set span to 20 seconds
            System.TimeSpan span = new System.TimeSpan(0, 0, 0, 20, 0);
            
            //load chrome and the sharepoint library you want to upload to
            IWebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();           
            driver.Url = "https://yoursite/yourlibrary/Forms/AllItems.aspx";

            //click the upload button
            driver.FindElement(By.Id("QCB1_Button2")).Click();

            //switch the driver focus to the file upload modal
            driver.SwitchTo().Frame(driver.FindElement(By.ClassName("ms-dlgFrame")));

            //allow some time for the modal to load 
            WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, span);

            //get the upload field from the sharepoint modal
            IWebElement uploadElement = driver.FindElement(By.Id("ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_ctl02_ctl04_InputFile"));

            //use sendkeys to insert the path to the file you want to upload
            uploadElement.SendKeys(@"C:\taco.txt");

            //click the ok button on the modal
            driver.FindElement(By.Id("ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_ctl01_RptControls_btnOK")).Click();            
        }
    }
}
