How do I target a specific div on a webpage using Playwright?


Scoping 'Page' to a Specific Div with Playwright

Yes, you can! Playwright's page.$$eval() method lets you query elements within a specific div. This method finds all elements matching a selector and passes them as an array to a page function.

Here's how you can do it:

const divElements = await page.$$eval('#myDiv', (divs) => {
  // Perform operations or extract information from 'divs'
  // Return any desired result

In this example, #myDiv is the selector for the div you're targeting. The array of matched elements is passed to your page function (divs) => { ... }, where you can perform operations or extract information.

This approach lets you focus your actions and assertions on elements within a specific div, giving you more control when interacting with your web application.

Remember, if multiple elements match the selector, only the first one is used by default. If you need to work with multiple matching elements, adjust your code accordingly.

Happy testing with Playwright! Let me know if there's anything else you need help with.


Thank you!
