When using Page Object pattern PageFactory does not decorate ElementsCollection fields, so I'm getting NullPointerException. You can reproduce it on your own Google classic page object example.

Hi @rishaselfing !
In the "classic_page_object" folder, there is a test using pure Selenium code. I mean, class org.selenide.examples.google.classic_page_object.GoogleTest does not use Selenide. It uses selenium built-in factory org.openqa.selenium.support.PageFactory. It's not supposed to support Selenide classes.

Thought, you are right, Selenide page factory actually cannot inject ElementsCollection fields.
I have fixed it in Selenide 2.20 (it's not released yet). I have also added such an example to Google example:


Thank you.
