How can I interact with a previously visited page using Playwright?


Interacting with an Already Used Page in Playwright

To interact with a previously visited page in Playwright, you'll need to create a new Page instance and navigate to the URL of the page you want to interact with.

First, launch a browser:

const browser = await browserType.launch();

Next, create a new context:

const context = await browser.newContext();

Then, create a new Page instance and navigate to the URL of the desired page:

const page = await context.newPage();
await page.goto('https://ray.run/');

Now, you can interact with the page using various methods provided by Playwright's Page class. For example, to click on an element:

await page.click(selector);

Or to fill in a form field:

await page.fill(selector, value);

Remember, Playwright provides several best practices for interacting with pages, such as using locators and chaining/filtering methods. Also, avoid testing third-party dependencies or external sites that are out of your control as they may cause your tests to fail unpredictably. Instead, use Playwright's Network API and guarantee the response needed.
