What are the possible reasons for a browser window not opening when selecting Chromium after clicking 'Record New' in CodeGen on VS Code and how can I troubleshoot it?


Troubleshooting Chromium in CodeGen on VS Code

If Chromium doesn't open after clicking "Record new" in CodeGen on VS Code, there could be a few reasons why.

Check Playwright Extension

First, make sure the Playwright extension is installed and enabled in VS Code. You can check this by going to the Extensions view (Ctrl+Shift+X) and searching for "Playwright". If it's not installed, click "Install". Once installed, ensure it's enabled by checking for a green checkmark next to its name.

Set Default Profile

Next, ensure Chromium is your default profile for debugging tests. Right-click on the debug icon in the testing sidebar and click "Select Default Profile". Choose "Chromium" from the options.

Update Playwright

Lastly, make sure you have the latest version of Playwright installed globally on your machine. Run the following command in your terminal:

npm install -g playwright

Also, ensure all necessary dependencies are properly installed according to Playwright's documentation.

If you're still having issues, consult Playwright's official documentation or their community forums for further troubleshooting. For more information on @playwright/test, check out this comprehensive guide.
