How to assert URL in anchor tag

on Wed Jul 06, 2016 4:52 pm
I'm a noob to both Selenium & Ruby and am stuck on how to do the following (or even if its possible)

I'm testing multiple pages, built from the same template, on this template, is a "configure" button and based on which page i'm on the configure button has different URL assigned to it.

now, I know I can click on the button, get the current URL and assert this against what it should be, however, i'm just writing a quick smoke test, so all i really want to do is confirm that the URL for the configure page is correct for the page i'm on.

Is there any way in webdriver/ruby to do an assert against:
<a href="MYURL">

Hi Peter,

You can use the method "attribute" to get the href value of the anchor tag  web element. Later you can assert the value.

Assume e is the anchor tag web element,


Assertions.assert(actualvalue,expected value);

(bear with mistakes if any, as i am not familiar with ruby language)
