  • Consider this random site where when we double-click on the 'Click Me' text changes.

   await page.goto('file://D:/iVagus/Playwright/dbl.html');
   await page.locator('//*[@id="heading"]').dblclick();
   await expect(page.locator('//*[@id="heading"]')).toContainText('Welcome to the');
console.log(await page.locator('//*[@id="heading"]').textContent())
  • We can see double click worked, and the text changed to something other than the present one.
