Overview

A Element represents a single element on the page. It is possible to interact with the contents of this element the same as with a document:

session = Capybara::Session.new(:rack_test, my_app)

bar = session.find('#bar')              # from Capybara::Node::Finders
bar.select('Baz', :from => 'Quox')      # from Capybara::Node::Actions

Element also has access to HTML attributes and other properties of the element:

bar.value
bar.text
bar[:title]

#text(type = nil) ⇒ String

Retrieve the text of the element. If `Capybara.ignore_hidden_elements` is `true`, which it is by default, then this will return only text which is visible. The exact semantics of this may differ between drivers, but generally any text within elements with `display:none` is ignored. This behaviour can be overridden by passing `:all` to this method.
