            Problem with selecting a specific web element with Playwright in Python
            Asked 2022-Apr-16 at 07:09

            I'm having problems using the selector to specify an html input.

            I want that Playwright identifies an Whatsapp TEXTBOX so that i can use it, but there is no ID, or even a CSS element that i can specify.

            At first, i tried using the comannd detailed on DOC, getting the elements from the website.



            Answered 2022-Apr-14 at 16:18

            Problem is, that these are not text or input elements, but divs, which inner HTML is being changed when typing. You can check that, by opening WhatsApp in the browser, opening the dev tools, and typing something into the field.

            You can identify those divs via the title attribute, as those seem to be unique: //div[@title="Search text box"]

            Playwright cannot change the inner HTML of a div, but you could do via Javascript, which you let evaluate by Playwright.

            The Javascript would be (you can evaluate that in the dev tools' console):

            Cannot figure out how to wait for text in input value
            Asked 2022-Mar-27 at 16:37

            Scenario: I need to wait for some specific text to load on the page, the issue im experiencing is that the text is the value of an input box and this value is the last thing on the page to load/appear.

            I was wondering if there was some way to tell playwright:

            wait for the text value in this input box to = "text input value"

            I've used await'my locator').inputValue(); but I noticed that the value can sometimes return blank when the page takes a little longer to load so i need to specifically wait for it before continuing.

            at the moment Im waiting for a specific Api request to complete which works for now, but I was wondering if there was a better way?

            Any help would be appreciated.



            Answered 2022-Mar-27 at 09:49

            Try this:

            await page.waitForSelector('text=Log in',{timeout:25000})

            adapt the selector, you can use text or css or xpath. And you can change timeout value to one that suits you, it is in mili seconds.

            Instead of the text content, you have to assert the value. You can do this by using toHaveValue web-first assertion.

            I'm trying to validate the dropdown value I selected. I'm using this for the Playwright tool. I wrote a code for that validation but I got an error. anyone knows how to fix this error and how to write this in typescript using this $eval. thank you.

            I had similar issues on that page sometimes it is going faster and pick select as default, even the code after is changing the dd to some other values. So you can use hard wait.

            How to handle chromium microphone permission pop-ups in playwright?
            Asked 2022-Mar-14 at 14:57
            What I'm trying to do

            Test a website that requires microphone access with playwright

            The problem

            Pop-up in question comes up and seems to ignore supposedly granted permissions. Permission can be given manually, but this seems against the spirit of automation.

            What I tried ...


            Answered 2022-Mar-14 at 14:57

            You're missing some command line flags that tell chrome to simulate having a microphone. Give this sample a shot.



            Playwright upload file on non-input element
            Asked 2022-Mar-10 at 00:22

            So I'm currently trying to automate uploading a profile photo on an Electron App using Playwright and I'm running into issues with 'filechooser' event.



            Answered 2022-Mar-03 at 05:14

            My slippers told me that if you are using the window.showOpenFilePicker() to get a file from the user, you won't get the filechooser event at all. This is because internally, the showOpenFilePicker is not triggering an event as it is still a WIP. More infos can be found there but I don't think there is a workaround for now

            Pupetter has actually the same issue:`

            One fix would be to not use the showOpenFilePicker() at all, but instead rely on the element to gather the file. This is a bit more cumbersome for the dev but is more supported and should trigger the 'filechooser' event.

            Another fix could be to add a function you can override when running in test move for it to not even need to open the file chooser. Something like

            Your page might be recreating the DOM. To overcome that you can use the locator feature from playwright.



            Add custom matchers to Playwright with Typescript support
            Asked 2022-Feb-21 at 13:39

            There is a page here to write a custom matcher to the Playwright.



            Answered 2022-Feb-20 at 23:54

            TL;DR You can't extend expect because of the type declarations they use.

            You should open an issue for that documentation.

            Looking at the type declarations, we see that Expect is a type alias and not an interface...

            Which means we can't augment this type...

            If they changed it to an interface then we could augment the module and add our extensions.

            So for that, you also might want to open an issue or a pull request to fix it (fixing it is literally changing one line or two).
