Lesson 16 - PHP Testing - More Selenium WebDriver Syntax
In the previous lesson, PHP Testing - Selenium WebDriver syntax overview, we started with a detailed description of the Selenium WebDriver syntax of the Codeception PHP framework. In today's tutorial, we're going to continue.
Controlling the browser
Of course we can manipulate with the keyboard.
- pressKey(element, keys) - Presses a given key in a given
element. We pass the keys as separated method parameters and as strings (e.g.
"a"). The strings can contains multiple characters as well. Instead of a single key, we can also pass a string array with they keys which should be pressed simultaneously (e.g. ['ctrl', 'c']).
Now let's introduce the manipulation with tabs.
- switchToWindow(name) - Switches to another window (tab) of a given name. If we don't provide the name, it switches to the previous window.
- switchToNextTab(offset) - Switches to the next tab. We
can also provide an offset to skip some tabs. For example, to switch to the
second next tab, we'd use the offset
- switchToPreviousTab(offset) - Switches to the previous
tab. We can also define the offset, to jump to the second previous tab by using
- closeTab() - Closes the current tab and moves to the last active tab.
- openNewTab() - Opens a new tab and switches to it (the AdBlock add-on can cause a failure of this action).
There are still some actions in the browser control category
