web

Provides methods for browser automation.

Notes:

Commands which operate on elements such as click, assert, waitFor, type, select, and others will automatically wait for a period of time for the element to appear in DOM and become visible. By default this period equals to 60 seconds, but can be changed using the setTimeoutcommand.

String matching patterns:

Commands which expect a string matching pattern in their arguments, support following patterns unless specified otherwise:

  • regex:PATTERN - Match using regular expression.

  • regexi:PATTERN - Match using case-insensitive regular expression.

  • exact:STRING - Match the string verbatim.

  • glob:PATTERN - Match using case-insensitive glob pattern. ? will match any single character except new line (\n). * will match any sequence (0 or more) of characters except new line. Empty PATTERN will match only other empty strings.

  • PATTERN - Same as glob matching.

    Commands which expect an element locator in their arguments, support following locator types unless specified otherwise:

  • id=ID - Locates element by its ID attribute.

  • css=CSS_SELECTOR - Locates element using a CSS selector.

  • link=TEXT - Locates link element whose visible text matches the given string.

  • link-contains=TEXT - Locates link element whose visible text contains the given string.

  • name=NAME - Locates element by its NAME attribute.

  • tag=NAME - Locates element by its tag name.

  • /XPATH - Locates element using an XPath 1.0 expression.

  • (XPATH)[] - Locates element using an XPath 1.0 expression.
