How do I use Playwright to automatically select the first visible and clickable date on a webpage?


Sure, you can set Playwright to always select the first visible clickable date. Playwright's actionability checks ensure elements are ready for interaction before performing actions. These checks include verifying if an element is attached to the DOM, visible, stable, and can receive events.

Here's how you can use the click method to select the first visible clickable date:

await page.click('your-selector-for-the-date-element');

Just replace 'your-selector-for-the-date-element' with a valid selector that targets your date element. Playwright will automatically wait for the element to be ready for interaction and perform a human-like click on it.

If there are multiple elements matching your selector and you want to ensure only one element is selected, you can use page.waitForSelector or specify more specific selectors. This way, you'll always pick the first visible clickable date.
