KeyBoard Events in Selenium

Requirement : Need to press "Page Down" key during one of the selenium tests

Solution:  Use typeKeys(locator,value) command to generate a keystroke event.  
In some cases, you may need to use the simple "type" command to set the value of the field and then the "typeKeys" command to send the keystroke events corresponding to what you just typed.

locator can be '//' in this case
value can be the ASCII value of the keyboard keys. Refer the below table for examples

8 Brower Back Button
32 SpaceBar Key (also Page Down key)
33 Shift+SpaceBar key (also Page Up key)
34 (or) 35 (or) 36 Page Down key
38
Up Arrow
112 Opens a new browser page
116 F5 key (Refresh Browser Page)
118 F7 key (Caret Browsing On)
122 F11 key

"Model-based testing, uses algorithms to determine all of the usage paths for an application, pares down that number for maximum coverage and minimal testing, and then generates various test cases to try the application against" .. [Original Article]

How do you prepare yourself for a new assignment?


In September 2007 edition of Better Software magazine, Don Gray looks at some of the peoples' challenges in software projects. No matter whether you are put up in a new team or its a new job, you will find this article interesting.  Personally i liked the section where he asks the readers to question themselves

  • What will happen if I do?
  • What will happen if I don't?
  • What won't happen if I do?
  • What won't happen if I don't?
