Hi I am using selenium to automate test on web pages.
I am using selenium 2 and python and would like to have answers in this framework only.
SO how do I check whether some text is present or not? I have tried asset equals but it is not working?
For those of you who are still interested:
if text in driver.page_source: # text exists in page
assertTrue(text in driver.page_source)
assert text in driver.page_source
You can use
driver.page_source and a simple regular expression to check if the text exists:
import re src = driver.page_source text_found = re.search(r'text_to_search', src) self.assertNotEqual(text_found, None)
You can try something like
browser = webdriver.Firefox() browser.get(url) WebDriverWait(browser, 10).until(EC.element_to_be_clickable((By.LINK_TEXT, 'some link text')))
Essentially the above lines launch Firefox, navigate to the specified url, cause the browser to hold for 10 seconds, for some url to load then look for a specific link text, if no link text is found, a TimeoutException is triggered.
Please note the number of brackets used, you will run into errors if the number of brackets does not correspond like the above.
To be able to run the above statement, the following must have been declared
from selenium import webdriver from selenium.webdriver.common.by import By from selenium.webdriver.support.ui import WebDriverWait from selenium.webdriver.support import expected_conditions as EC
This uses “element_to_be_clickable” – a full list of wait-conditions can be found here: Selenium Python: Waits
