Overview

A Base represents either an element on a page through the subclass Element or a document through Document.

Both types of Node share the same methods, used for interacting with the elements on the page. These methods are divided into three categories, finders, actions and matchers. These are found in the modules Finders, Actions and Matchers respectively.

A Session exposes all methods from Document directly:

session = Capybara::Session.new(:rack_test, my_app)
session.visit('/')
session.fill_in('Foo', :with => 'Bar')    # from Capybara::Node::Actions
bar = session.find('#bar')                # from Capybara::Node::Finders
bar.select('Baz', :from => 'Quox')        # from Capybara::Node::Actions
session.has_css?('#foobar')               # from Capybara::Node::Matchers

#synchronize(seconds = Capybara.default_wait_time, options = {}) ⇒ Object

This method is Capybara's primary defence against asynchronicity problems. It works by attempting to run a given block of code until it succeeds. The exact behaviour of this method depends on a number of factors. Basically there are certain exceptions which, when raised from the block, instead of bubbling up, are caught, and the block is re-run.

Certain drivers, such as RackTest, have no support for asynchronous processes, these drivers run the block, and any error raised bubbles up immediately. This allows faster turn around in the case where an expectation fails.

Only exceptions that are ElementNotFound or any subclass thereof cause the block to be rerun. Drivers may specify additional exceptions which also cause reruns. This usually occurs when a node is manipulated which no longer exists on the page. For example, the Selenium driver specifies `Selenium::WebDriver::Error::ObsoleteElementError`.

As long as any of these exceptions are thrown, the block is re-run, until a certain amount of time passes. The amount of time defaults to Capybara.default_wait_time and can be overridden through the `seconds` argument. This time is compared with the system time to see how much time has passed. If the return value of `Time.now` is stubbed out, Capybara will raise `Capybara::FrozenInTime`.

Parameters:

  • seconds (Integer) (defaults to: Capybara.default_wait_time)

    Number of seconds to retry this block

  • options (Hash) (defaults to: {})

Options Hash (options):

  • :errors (Array<Exception>) — default: driver.invalid_element_errors + [Capybara::ElementNotFound]

    exception types that cause the block to be rerun

Returns:

  • (Object)

    The result of the given block
