Instance Method Details

#find_element(*args) ⇒ WebDriver::Element

Find the first element matching the given arguments.

When using Element#find_element with :xpath, be aware that webdriver follows standard conventions: a search prefixed with “//” will search the entire document, not just the children of this current node. Use “.//” to limit your search to the children of the receiving Element.

Parameters:

  • how (:class, :class_name, :css, :id, :link_text, :link, :partial_link_text, :name, :tag_name, :xpath)
  • what (String)

Returns:

Raises:

  • (NoSuchElementError)

    if the element doesn't exist
