Domains: Selenium

Selenium commands are simple, they consist of the command and two parameters. For example:

The parameters are not always required; it depends on the command. In some cases both are required, in others one parameter is required, and in still others the command may take no parameters at all. Here are a couple more examples:

The command reference describes the parameter requirements for each command.

Parameters vary, however they are typically:

  • a locator for identifying a UI element within a page.
  • a text pattern for verifying or asserting expected page content
  • a text pattern or a selenium variable for entering text in an input field or for selecting an option from an option list.

Locators, text patterns, selenium variables, and the commands themselves are described in considerable detail in the section on Selenium Commands.
