NAME ^

Test::Selenium::Remote::Driver

DESCRIPTION ^

A subclass of Selenium::Remote::Driver. which provides useful testing functions.

This is an experimental addition to the Selenium::Remote::Driver distribution, and some interfaces may change.

Methods ^

new ( %opts )

This will create a new Test::Selenium::Remote::Driver object, which subclasses Selenium::Remote::Driver. This subclass provides useful testing functions. It is modeled on Test::WWW::Selenium.

Environment vars can be used to specify options to pass to Selenium::Remote::Driver. ENV vars are prefixed with TWD_. ( After the old fork name, "Test::WebDriver" )

Set the Selenium server address with $TWD_HOST and $TWD_PORT.

Pick which browser is used using the $TWD_BROWSER, $TWD_VERSION, $TWD_PLATFORM, $TWD_JAVASCRIPT, $TWD_EXTRA_CAPABILITIES.

See Selenium::Driver::Remote for the meanings of these options.

server_is_running( $host, $port )

Returns true if a Selenium server is running. The host and port parameters are optional, and default to localhost:4444.

Environment vars TWD_HOST and TWD_PORT can also be used to determine the server to check.

error_handler

As for Selenium::Remote::Driver, this class also supports adding an optional error_handler attribute during instantiation :

    my $test_driver = Test::Selenium::Remote::Driver->new(
        error_handler => sub { print $_[1]; croak 'goodbye'; }
    );

Additionally, you can set and/or clear it at any time on an already-instantiated driver:

    # later, change the error handler to something else
    $driver->error_handler( sub { print $_[1]; croak 'hello'; } );

    # stop handling errors manually and use the default S:R:D behavior
    # (we will croak about the exception)
    $driver->clear_error_handler;

Your error handler will receive two arguments, The first argument is the $driver object itself. Due to some specificities of this class, the second argument passed to the handler can be:

the error message from the Webdriver

This is the case when the error message is raised by a WebDriver failure

"Failed to find ..."

This message is raised when the Webdriver call is successful but the failure occurs on the test performed aftwerwards. This is the case for functions like body_text_like, body_text_unlike, body_text_contains, body_text_lacks, content_like, content_unlike, content_contains, content_lacks.

If you set your own handler, you should not rely that much on the message returned. You should also remember that you are entirely responsible for handling exceptions, which means that should the error handler be called, it means that the test you are doing has failed, so you should croak.

You should also call fail() in your handler, in case the function called raised a webdriver error, because, as exceptions are not caught anymore when you specify a handler, the function will not fail anymore, which translates to a 'ok' in your TAP output if you do not handle it properly.

   $twd->type_element_ok( $search_target [,$locator], $keys [, $desc ] );

Use "find_element" in Selenium::Remote::Driver to resolve the $search_target to a web element and an optional locator, and then type $keys into it, providing an optional test label.

    $twd->element_value_is($search_target[,$finder],$expected_value [,$desc]);

$twd->click_element_ok($search_target [,$finder ,$desc]);

    $twd->click_element_ok($search_target [,$finder ,$desc]);

Find an element and then click on it.

$twd->clear_element_ok($search_target [,$finder ,$desc]);

    $twd->clear_element_ok($search_target [,$finder ,$desc]);

NOTES ^

This module was forked from Test::WebDriver 0.01.

For Best Practice - I recommend subclassing Test::Selenium::Remote::Driver for your application, and then refactoring common or app specific methods into MyApp::WebDriver so that your test files do not have much duplication. As your app changes, you can update MyApp::WebDriver rather than all the individual test files.
