jasmine-webdriver-controller

Adds methods to jasmine that enable it to send commands to a webdriver server. This allows for component oriented testing from jasmine.

Overview

  • Specs that return a promise are wrapped in a timeout detector. If the promise isn't resolved in 5 seconds or the promise fails, the test will fail. A spec must return a webdriver promise for this functionality to work.
  • A collection of helper methods are attached to each spec.
  • A global Driver object is created to communicate with the webdriver server.

Selectors

The documentation for the selector factories in WebdriverJS is poor. Here's an example:

By.id("user")

I think you can also pass strings and DOM element pointers as selectors, but I'm not clear on how/if this works.

Helper Methods

All of the available methods are added to the this object for each spec. They can be accessed from within a jasmine test as this.method-name().

getDeferred()

getDeferred() => webdriver.promise.Deferred

A convenience factory for WebdriverJS Deferred objects. These objects contain a promise and the methods to resolve the promise.

See https://code.google.com/p/selenium/wiki/WebDriverJs#Deferred_Objects for a complete explaination of Deferred.

waitForElement(selector)

waitForElement(selector) => webdriver.promise.Promise

Waits until the element selected by the selector exists in the DOM.

parameters:

  • selector -- a valid Webdriver selector

waitForVisible(selector)

waitForVisible(selector) => webdriver.promise.Promise

Waits until the element selected by the selector is visible in the DOM. For an element to be visible, all of the following must be true:

  • It exists in the DOM
  • It does not have the CSS visibility: hidden applied to it
  • It does not have the CSS display: none applied to it
  • It has a non-zero height and width

parameters:

  • selector -- a valid Webdriver selector

waitForNotVisible(selector)

waitForNotVisible(selector) => webdriver.promise.Promise

Waits until the element selected by the selector is not visible in the DOM. For an element to not be visible, at least one of the following must be true:

  • It does not exist in the DOM
  • It has the CSS visibility: hidden applied to it
  • It has the CSS display: none applied to it
  • It has a zero height or width

parameters:

  • selector -- a valid Webdriver selector

click(selector)

click(selector) => webdriver.promise.Promise

Clicks the element selected by the selector.

parameters:

  • selector -- a valid Webdriver selector

mouseOver(selector)

mouseOver(selector) => webdriver.promise.Promise

Hovers the mouse cursor over the element selected by the selector.

parameters:

  • selector -- a valid Webdriver selector

sendKeys(selector, keys)

sendKeys(selector, keys) => webdriver.promise.Promise

Gives focus to the element selected by the selector, then sends keystrokes.

parameters

  • selector

    a valid Webdriver selector

  • keys

    a string of keys to be sent
