In Playwright, you can use the
Here's how you can do it:
const locator = page.locator('your-locator'); const handle = await locator.evaluateHandle((element) => element);
your-locator with your actual locator expression. The
Once you have the handle, you can perform various operations on it using Playwright's API. For example, you can interact with its properties or call methods on it.
Remember, when using
evaluateHandle, Playwright automatically serializes and deserializes complex objects between Node.js and browser contexts. This means that even if your locator matches multiple elements, only their handles will be returned rather than their full representations.
So, with Playwright's
evaluateHandle method and a locator expression, you can easily get handles to underlying DOM objects and perform further actions on them in your automation scripts.
If you still have questions, please ask a question and I will try to answer it.
