How do I resolve a TypeError related to 'getByRole' in my Playwright test?


Fixing TypeError Related to 'getByRole'

To fix the TypeError related to 'getByRole', follow these steps:

  1. Check arguments: Ensure you're passing the correct arguments to 'getByRole'. It takes two arguments: role and options. The role argument specifies the ARIA role for locating elements, while options can include additional properties like name or checked.
import { test, expect } from '@playwright/test';

test('Find element by role', async ({ page }) => {
  await page.goto('https://ray.run/');
  const button = await page.locator('[role="button"]');
  await expect(button).toHaveText('Submit');
  1. Import necessary modules: Make sure to import all required modules at the beginning of your test file. For instance, if you're using Playwright for testing, you'll need to import '@playwright/test' at the top of your file.
import { test, expect } from '@playwright/test';
  1. Consult documentation and seek assistance: If the above steps don't resolve the issue, refer to the Playwright documentation and seek help from online forums or communities dedicated to testing with Playwright.

Remember to review relevant code examples or tutorials that demonstrate how 'getByRole' should be used in practice. For more tips on writing efficient Playwright test scripts, check out this blog post.
