NAME ^

Test::WWW::Selenium::More - More tools for Selenium testing

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Test::WWW::Selenium::More;

    Test::WWW::Selenium::More->new()
      ->note('this is a test.  this is only a test.')
      ->open_ok("/") 
      ->is_text_present_ok("Welcome to the internet") 
      ->download_file_ok('link=Download my file');

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides method chaining and some useful tools for Selenium testing.

If you are new to this module or Selenium testing in general, see the Test::WWW::Selenium::More::Manual.

This library extends Test::WWW::Selenium. Method chaining is available for all Test::WWW::Selenium::More methods and all Test::WWW::Selenium methods whose names end in _ok, _is, _isnt or _like.

ATTRIBUTES ^

host

The hostname or ip address of the Selenium server. Defaults to 'localhost'.

port

The port of the Selenium server. Defaults to '4444'.

browser

The browser to run tests against on the Selenium server. Defaults to '*chrome'.

browser_url

The Selenium server runs tests against this website.

autostop

When $selenium goes out of scope the browser will be automatically shut down if this attribute is set to true. Otherwise stop() must be called explicitly. Defaults to 1.

slow

The number of seconds to sleep after each call to any Test::WWW::Selenium method. This is useful for slowing down tests if you are watching them run in a browser. Defaults to 0.

stash

A HashRef of saved values. This behaves similar to the Catalyst stash.

METHODS ^

load_data( $file )

Returns a data structure from $file. $file must have valid Perl syntax.

This method is for use with data driven tests. It helps you to separate your Perl code from your test data.

Here is an example of what the contents of $file could look like:

( { name => 'Name of my test', link => 'Click me', text => 'Ponies', }, { name => 'Test downloading stuff', link => 'Download', text => 'Download worked', }, ... );

follow_link_ok( $locator, $test_description )

Returns $self.

This method performs a click_ok on the page element specified by $locator and then does a wait_for_page_to_load(). $test_description is optional. It will be set to something appropriate if you don't set it.

fill_form_ok( $form )

Returns $self.

$form must be a hashref that looks like this:

    $selenium->fill_form_ok(
        { select => { locator => value, ... },
          input  => { locator => value, ... },
        }
    );

The 'select' key indicates dropdown menus that will be selected. The 'input' key indicates text input, hidden input, checkboxes, and radio buttons.

The form is not submitted.

submit_form_ok( $form )

Returns $self.

$form must be a hashref that looks like this:

    $selenium->submit_form_ok(
        { select => { locator => value, ... },
          input  => { locator => value, ... },
          click  => 'locator', # or 'submit' instead of 'click'
        }
    );

$form is simply passed to fill_form_ok(). Afterwards submit_form_ok() looks for 2 keys to process: 'click' and 'submit'. The form is submitted via a click on page element indicated by 'locator' when 'click' is used. The form is submitted without a click when 'submit' is used. This is useful for forms without submit buttons.

wait_for_jquery_ok()

Returns $self.

This blocks until jQuery.active returns false.

jquery_select_ok($locator, $menu_option)

Returns $self.

$locator should point to a dropdown menu on the page. This method will select the $menu_option from the dropdown. Then it will call wait_for_jquery().

select_and_page_load_ok($locator, $menu_option)

Returns $self.

$locator should point to a dropdown menu on the page. This method will select the $menu_option from the dropdown. Then it will call wait_for_page_to_load().

jquery_click_ok($locator, $menu_option)

Returns $self.

Click whatever is located at $locator. Then wait for jquery to finish by calling wait_for_jquery().

stash_text( $locator => $key )

Returns $self.

Retrieves the value of $locator from selenium and stores it in the stash under the name $key.

stash_location( $key )

Returns $self.

Retrieves the location from selenium and stores it in the stash under the name $key.

from_stash( $key )

Returns a value from the stash.

stash( $value => $key )

Returns $self.

Saves $value to the stash under the name $key.

note( $msg )

Returns $self.

calls Test::Most::note($msg);

is_text_not_present_ok( $text )

Returns $self.

The opposite of is_text_present_ok().

note_line( $msg )

Outputs an underlined message, useful for dividing up test output. If no message specified, then just prints the separator line.

download_file_ok($locator)

Parses the href attribute from a link on the current page. Downloads that url via javascript's XMLHttpRequest. Checks that response status is 200.

change_speed($seconds)

This just updates the slow() attribute. The only difference is that it returns $self so that you can do method chaining.
