Overview

The Session class represents a single user's interaction with the system. The Session can use any of the underlying drivers. A session can be initialized manually like this:

session = Capybara::Session.new(:culerity, MyRackApp)

The application given as the second argument is optional. When running Capybara against an external page, you might want to leave it out:

session = Capybara::Session.new(:culerity)
session.visit('http://www.google.com')

When Capybara.threadsafe == true the sessions options will be initially set to the current values of the global options and a configuration block can be passed to the session initializer. For available options see Capybara::SessionConfig::OPTIONS

session = Capybara::Session.new(:driver, MyRackApp) do |config|
  config.app_host = "http://my_host.dev"
end

Session provides a number of methods for controlling the navigation of the page, such as visit, +current_path, and so on. It also delegates a number of methods to a Capybara::Document, representing the current HTML document. This allows interaction:

session.fill_in('q', with: 'Capybara')
session.click_button('Search')
expect(session).to have_content('Capybara')

When using capybara/dsl, the Session is initialized automatically for you.

#evaluate_async_script(script, *args) ⇒ Object

  • (Object)

    The result of the evaluated JavaScript (may be driver specific)

end

#evaluate_script(script, *args) ⇒ Object

Evaluate the given JavaScript and return the result. Be careful when using this with scripts that return complex objects, such as jQuery statements. execute_script might be a better alternative.

Parameters:

  • script (String)

    A string of JavaScript to evaluate

Returns:

  • (Object)

    The result of the evaluated JavaScript (may be driver specific)

end

#execute_script(script, *args) ⇒ Object

Execute the given script, not returning a result. This is useful for scripts that return complex objects, such as jQuery statements. execute_script should be used over evaluate_script whenever possible.

Parameters:

  • script (String)

    A string of JavaScript to execute

  • args

    Optional arguments that will be passed to the script. Driver support for this is optional and types of objects supported may differ between drivers

#reset!Object Also known as: cleanup!, reset_session!

Reset the session (i.e. remove cookies and navigate to blank page)

This method does not:

* accept modal dialogs if they are present (Selenium driver now does, others may not)
* clear browser cache/HTML 5 local storage/IndexedDB/Web SQL database/etc.
* modify state of the driver/underlying browser in any other way

as doing so will result in performance downsides and it's not needed to do everything from the list above for most apps.

If you want to do anything from the list above on a general basis you can:

* write RSpec/Cucumber/etc. after hook
* monkeypatch this method
* use Ruby's `prepend` method

#switch_to_window(&block) ⇒ Capybara::Window #switch_to_window(window) ⇒ Capybara::Window

Returns window that has been switched to

Overloads:

  • #switch_to_window(&block) ⇒ Capybara::Window

    Switches to the first window for which given block returns a value other than false or nil. If window that matches block can't be found, the window will be switched back and `WindowError` will be raised.

    Examples:

    window = switch_to_window { title == 'Page title' }

    Raises:

  • #switch_to_window(window) ⇒ Capybara::Window

    Parameters:

    Raises:

Returns:

Raises:

  • (Capybara::ScopeError)

    if this method is invoked inside `within` or `within_frame` methods

  • (ArgumentError)

    if both or neither arguments were provided

#visit(visit_uri) ⇒ Object

Navigate to the given URL. The URL can either be a relative URL or an absolute URL The behaviour of either depends on the driver.

session.visit('/foo')
session.visit('http://google.com')

For drivers which can run against an external application, such as the selenium driver giving an absolute URL will navigate to that page. This allows testing applications running on remote servers. For these drivers, setting Capybara.app_host will make the remote server the default. For example:

Capybara.app_host = 'http://google.com'
session.visit('/') # visits the google homepage

If Capybara.always_include_port is set to true and this session is running against a rack application, then the port that the rack application is running on will automatically be inserted into the URL. Supposing the app is running on port `4567`, doing something like:

visit("http://google.com/test")

Will actually navigate to `google.com:4567/test`.

Parameters:

  • visit_uri (#to_s)

    The URL to navigate to. The parameter will be cast to a String.

#window_opened_by(**options, &block) ⇒ Capybara::Window

Get the window that has been opened by the passed block. It will wait for it to be opened (in the same way as other Capybara methods wait). It's better to use this method than `windows.last` as order of windows isn't defined in some drivers

Returns the window that has been opened within a block

Parameters:

  • options (Hash)

Options Hash (**options):

  • :wait (Numeric) — default: Capybara.default_max_wait_time

    maximum wait time

Returns:

Raises:

  • (Capybara::WindowError)

    if block passed to window hasn't opened window or opened more than one window

#windowsArray<Capybara::Window>

#within(*find_args) ⇒ Object #within(a_node) ⇒ Object Also known as: within_element

Executes the given block within the context of a node. `within` takes the same options as `find`, as well as a block. For the duration of the block, any command to Capybara will be handled as though it were scoped to the given element.

within(:xpath, './/div[@id="delivery-address"]') do
  fill_in('Street', with: '12 Main Street')
end

Just as with `find`, if multiple elements match the selector given to `within`, an error will be raised, and just as with `find`, this behaviour can be controlled through the `:match` and `:exact` options.

It is possible to omit the first parameter, in that case, the selector is assumed to be of the type set in Capybara.default_selector.

within('div#delivery-address') do
  fill_in('Street', with: '12 Main Street')
end

Note that a lot of uses of `within` can be replaced more succinctly with chaining:

find('div#delivery-address').fill_in('Street', with: '12 Main Street')

Overloads:

  • #within(*find_args) ⇒ Object

    Parameters:

    • kind (Symbol)

      Optional selector type (:css, :xpath, :field, etc.) - Defaults to Capybara.default_selector

    • locator (String)

      The locator for the specified selector

    • options (Hash)

      a customizable set of options

  • #within(a_node) ⇒ Object

      Optional selector type (:frame, :css, :xpath, etc.) - Defaults to :frame
