In Playwright, you can simulate pressing the 'Enter' key using the
press() method on a locator. This method accepts logical key names that are emitted in the keyboardEvent.key property of the keyboard events.
Let's say you have a button with the text "Submit". You can locate it using
getByText() and then press 'Enter' on it like this:
Or, if you have a textbox or input field that has focus and you want to submit its value by pressing 'Enter', you can first type in your desired text using
type(), and then press 'Enter' using
press('Enter'). Here's how:
await page.locator('#myInputField').type('Hello World!'); await page.locator('#myInputField').press('Enter');
Remember, Playwright's built-in methods like
fill() usually handle sending keys like 'Enter' automatically. But if your webpage or application requires special handling for certain keys, you might need to manually send keys using Playwright's API.
If you still have questions, please ask a question and I will try to answer it.
