Elements and Selectors
Elements and selectors are used in the syntax in the steps. They help Behat identify what exactly you want it to click on.
- Element and Selectors are to be used in unison. An Element is the title of the selector you are using. Ie, If you need to press a button. The button is the Selector and then Element is the name of the button.
As an example:
And "$elements" "$selector" should be visible
Would be written as:
And "Create page" "button" should be visible
- Element are the title of the selector.
The hard one is: "css_elemet"
- For this you need to right click-> Inspect Element and then find the class or Id. Class is recognized by a full stop and ID is recognized by a #.
For example using the search box on the copy page or collection:
And I click on ".query-button" "css_element"
Where ever it says "Selector" any of these forms of selectors can be used:
