Read non-displayed data

on Fri Dec 18, 2009 12:16 am
I am very new to Selenium. I can write very basic tests, which is all I need right now. But - Our web app embeds non-displayed data in every page - version numbers, etc. How can I use Selenium IDE to capture this data? I have gone through the Selenium doc and not found anything helpful.

Thanks!

Hi,

If that text will be appear on page but not visible on page then you can get that text.

There is one function for store HTML page source into string and then you can find that data into page source. But before make sure that hidden text will present in view source.

storeHtmlSource ( variableName )
Returns the entire HTML source between the opening and closing "html" tags.

Returns:
the entire HTML source

Hope this will help you. Best of luck.

Bye

Thank you. This is helpful, but as with so much in the Selenium world, the documentation is pretty weak, and I can't figure out how to get this to do anything useful. Can you please provide a small example?
