THIS GEM HAS BEEN DEPRECATED.
This is a page helper for Watir-WebDriver that allows use easy access to elements, and a way to interactively create page objects.
Example using Page Classes
Simply define a page such as:
require 'watir-webdriver' require 'watir-page-helper/commands' class MyPage < WatirPageHelper::Page direct_url "http://www.google.com" expected_element :text_field, :name => "q" expected_title "Google" text_field :search_box, :name => "q" button :search, :name => "btnG" end include WatirPageHelper::Commands WatirPageHelper.create visit MyPage do |page| page.search_box = "Watirmelon" page.search end WatirPageHelper.close
Example using Page Modules
First create a file under watir-page-helper/pages named my_page.rb
module WatirPageHelper::MyPage extend WatirPageHelper::ClassMethods direct_url "http://www.google.com" expected_element :text_field, :name => "q" expected_title "Google" text_field :search_box, :name => "q" button :search, :name => "btnG" end
Now, you can simply use this page in your script
$: << File.dirname(__FILE__) require 'watir-webdriver' require 'watir-page-helper/commands' include WatirPageHelper::Commands WatirPageHelper.create visit :my_page do |page| page.search_box = "Watirmelon" page.search end WatirPageHelper.close
Main Methods that the Watir Page Helper provides
- direct_url: allows you to navigate to a page upon initialization, if visit is set to true
- expected_title: allows you to automatically assert the expected title of the page when it is initialized
- expected_element: allows you to initialize the page by looking for a certain element. This is useful for pages that load dynamic content.
- Element methods for a majority of the Watir-WebDriver supported elements which generate useful helper methods.
- For example: text_field, select_list, radio_button, form, div, span, h1..h6 etc.
Contributing to watir-page-helper
- Check out the latest master to make sure the feature hasn't been implemented or the bug hasn't been fixed yet
- Check out the issue tracker to make sure someone already hasn't requested it and/or contributed it
- Fork the project
- Start a feature/bugfix branch
- Commit and push until you are happy with your contribution
- Make sure to add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
- Please try not to mess with the Rakefile, version, or history. If you want to have your own version, or is otherwise necessary, that is fine, but please isolate to its own commit so I can cherry-pick around it.
