Playwright Use fixme in beforeEach Hook

Profile picture for user arilio666

In playwright using fixme() will skip the next part of the test without hesitation. You can use the fixme method in a beforeEach hook to indicate that the code needs attention.

test.beforeEach(async ({page})=> 
   await page.goto('file://D:/iVagus/Playwright/dbl.html');
   // indicate that this needs attention
   test.fixme('Logic for selecting the element needs to be updated');
   await page.locator('//*[@id="heading"]').dblclick();
test('Verify title', async ({page})=> 
   await expect(page.locator('//*[@id="heading"]')).toContainText('Welcome to the');
   console.log(await page.locator('//*[@id="heading"]').textContent())
  • Here we can see that the test is skipped because it needs attention, and only the next test is run.
