WebElements are returned using different locators. Learn how to use them effectively.
- [Instructor] Welcome to the sixth video…of the third section.…The find methods in the WebDriver…return WebElements by using different locators.…So what is a WebElement and how can we use it?…A WebElement is an interface that implements methods…you can use for interacting with elements on a page.…A WebElement can be a text field…that you can click on, type in,…ask for its text, ask if it is visible, and so forth.…There are a total of 15 different methods…a WebElement implements.…
A click is only possible if the element is visible…and has a size larger than zero.…Click behaves pretty much as and when you actually click…
Selenium gives developers the power to control web browsers and use them to automate web application testing. As an open-source toolset, Selenium makes it easier for testers to evaluate web applications without putting in any extra time and effort.
Mastering Selenium Testing Tools is all about demystifying the Selenium suite. Learn to verify web applications, control browsers with code, and scale up the testing environment by distributing the execution of web applications on different browsers running on different operating systems.
Author Ripon Al Wasim starts with the Selenium IDE, a Firefox plugin that performs a simple record-and-playback of interactions with the browser. A tester aiming for professional output can use WebDriver, an advanced scripting tool that allows you to locate the elements you need to interact with using their name: id, xPath, or CSS. Next, learn to express the desired behavior using a well-known framework for behavior-driven development (BDD) called Cucumber for Java, which uses a language called Gherkin. Last but not least, Ripon shows how to run tests on the Selenium Server, and walks through a complete working example of Selenium and Cucumber in action, for acceptance testing of a web application.
