One thing you could include, as something of a tertiary tool, would be the ChroPath plugin for all major browsers. It makes finding an element by XPath, ID or CSS incredibly easy.

FAQ is always a good idea ;)
Maybe extend your FAQ 40 or add a new FAQ item with the different approaches you mentioned above? And add links to the threads where the concepts are explained in detail?

I think this way more users will find the FAQ.

What do you think?

I will extend faq40.

In the WD wiki examples tutorial add examples on

* how to deal with downloading or navigating pdf

* how to deal with popups

** alert popup

** print or save dialog

* how to deal with multiple tabs

* ...

All are very good points.   But the most important purpose of a tutorial is to start you up with easy problems (like installation, Hello World first script), and then move on to  higher difficulties of issues.  What I like about tutorial is also the explanation of the concepts,  like what is the difference between absolute xPath and relative. Sorry if I am too simplistic.

@Nine I agree with the first half of your statement; a tutorial as something of a "Quick-Start Guide". The explanation of concepts is great, and has a lot of value, but I would simply caution throwing in too much of that at the beginning. If someone is able to pick the UDF up and quickly get up to speed using it, they are much more likely to spend the time learning about the why and how of it. If all the theory is thrown at them first, they may get frustrated and not stick with it.

The tutorial already covers the steps "Installation" and "Concepts and Terms".
It will not cover general concepts like xPath etc. which are not unique to WebDriver. Else it would become to big and unreadable (my opinion).

The wiki is open to everyone to add or modify it. I'm just the guy who started the tutorial ;)

@Danp2 has been very helpful for beginners to learn how to use WebDriver. I'm sure he wanted to write a tutorial himself only if he had time. Thank you, @water, for initiating this project.

I would appreciate if someone could add a tutorial for use of _WD_Window, _WD_Action and _WD_ElementAction functions and compostion of $sDesiredCapabilities among other things. Though I have been using WebDriver for almost a year now, I still don't know how to use some of the "commands" in these functions.

Thnak you and I have a great expectation.

I have talked to Danp2 before starting with the tutorial  and have incorporated some of his suggestions.

I think a detailed overview of all available functions would be helpful.

That is essentially what wd_demo is supposed to be... a tutorial to demonstrate the basic functionality of these functions. That said, I don't feel that it is my job as the UDF developer to "spoon feed" you with example after example of how to call these functions and to utilize each of the available options. The ultimate answer to all of those questions is to reference the W3C specs.

For example -- Look at the function _WD_ElementAction. In the header it gives links to the specific sections of the W3C specs that it implements. Follow those links to get a better understanding of the underlying technology that the function is implementing.

Feel free to ask for input on any of these functions, but be prepared to show that you've attempted to understand them on your own. 😉

Quote

compostion of $sDesiredCapabilities

This is defined elsewhere (W3C specs as well as the individual webdriver consoles) and is outside the scope of this wiki entry IMO.

  • 1 year later...

I am a complete newbie to autoit coding and do agree that IE is almost dead and none of our customer portals work in it, so I need to write some code compatible with chrome or Firefox. When truing to use WD I hit a wall, that there are no materials for beginners, wiki is good start.

Can you please add some easy beginner type scripts as example? So far there is the wd_demo, but that covers just tasks, of opening a page and entering data in to active input object. 

How do I identify and click on a web button or a link?

Can you please add an example with syntax example and how to use it?

At the moment wiki has the Function name, description and some comments, but no actual syntax examples and explanations on what each part on the function is used for.

At the end of the wiki you find a reference to the example scripts thread:
"Water's thread in the Example Scripts forum - WebDriver example scripts collection"

There you'll find some scripts to play with.

I have tried that, but there are just 1 script there and a part of other. Example of getting data from enforcmenttracker was helpful a bit, but it still has a lot of gaps. Starting fromthe fact that enforcementtracker webpage does not open so a few example screenshots would be good.

What about the syntax? For example what does $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, mean and what is the data in the string after it?

There is many ways of finding element in an HTML DOM structure.
Take a look here:

Primary goal of the examples in AutoIt and the wiki is to explain basic use of a function - they do not cover everything. If you need to solve more complex tasks you get help at the forum.

The WebDriver UDF uses external components and definitions like XPath, external browser based drivers etc.
This means the forum and the wiki link to the relevant sources but do not explain everything in depth.

Coding with the WebDriver UDF can be a bit complex (at least when you start) but you get very good support from the forum. So keep your questions rolling :)

      I'm using Firefox however it shows up in all browsers.  When you hover over a hyperlink and the cursor turns to a hand then in the lower left corner of the browser the actual web URL link pops up.  How does one capture that text programmatically?  I know in FF I can right click and "Copy Link" I'm wondering if there is another way.

      I am trying to change the settings of the print option to Save as PDF and its not changing the settings and clicking on the Save button at the bottom. Here is my script that I have written and the format is correct below. Chrome browser I'm using is 97.0 My script was working fine using Chrome 95.0\ Not sure why its not working now
      It finds the print-preview-app element but not the others.

      I am trying to hit the Return key without having to use the Send keys. I have the following code and its not hitting the Return key. Am I missing something?
      ; Press Return $sAction = '{"actions":[{"type": "key", "id": "keyboard_1", "actions": [{"type": "keyDown", "value": "\uE006"},' ; Pause $sAction &= '{"type": "pause", "duration": 500},' ; Release Return $sAction &= '{"type": "keyUp", "value": "\uE006"}]}]}' _WD_Action($sSession, "actions", $sAction)
