This release reverts the changes made in 1.7.3 for the Press Key keyword. People were depending on the ability to use Press Key to type a string of characters which was an undocumented and untested feature.

Tests and documentation have now been added for that feature. The named keys functionality which was release in 1.7.3 will be reworked and re-released in 1.8.


1.7.3 Release

@zephraph zephraph released this Aug 11, 2015 · 80 commits to master since this release

This is a pretty small release that mostly fixes some backwards compatibility issues.


  • Added Get WebElement Keyword
  • Added named keys to Press Key
  • Fix an import error that caused a dependence on RF >= 2.8.5
  • Fixed an issue that caused screenshots to be improperly linked in the logs


1.7.2 Release

@zephraph zephraph released this Jul 22, 2015 · 103 commits to master since this release

This release introduces a few new keywords and contains an important fix for the latest selenium release. As always, if you find any issues let us know.


  • Added an argument called screenshot_root_directory that can be passed into S2L's
    constructor to specify where to store screenshots.
  • Added new keyword set screenshot directory which can be used to set the output
    of screenshots.
  • Added new keyword Input Text Into Prompt
  • Modified get alert message to accept a parameter dismiss (defaults to True) which can be
    used to prevent closing the alert message and instead will just return the alerts text.
    Also created new keyword dismiss alert to dismiss (default) or confirm the alert without
    reading the text of the alert. Expect cleanup of alert keywords in the future.
  • Added new keyword Input Text Into Prompt
  • Fixed an error where regular functions were not able to be used as a custom locator
  • Changed all test files to have a '.robot' extension

Important Fixes

  • Fixed issue that caused tests to fail when selenium > 2.26
