What is Class Name Locator in Selenium? How to get started with it?

Can anyone please provide me some knowledge regarding what is Class Name Locator in Selenium and how do i get started with it.

The Class Name locator aids in locating elements defined by the class attribute. Here’s an example of a LambdaTest login DOM screenshot where the login field is located through class name.

Here is the DOM structure:

<input type="email" name="email" value="" placeholder="Email" required="required" autofocus="autofocus" class="form-control mt-3 form-control-lg">

Below is the syntax of locating element through class name:

driver.findElement(By.className("form-control mt-3 form-control-lg "));
