The playwright uses CSS selectors just like any other automation tool. CSS selector engine pierces open shadow DOM by default.
It also uses custom pseudo-classes like :visible, :text, etc. CSS was originally used to target HTML elements. The playwright uses CSS selector go to for referencing web UI elements.
CSS Selectors Examples:
- #food selects the element with id food.
.food fetches element with class food
- .view .price selects the element with class .price within an element with class .view.
[class=select] Using this will select an attribute class equal to select.
<button class="select">Log in</button>
- a.cart select type a with class value cart.
- #nav > .cart finds elements within nav id and class cart.
There are many more CSS selector methods with which we can pour into the playwright and use them effectively.
