What will you learn in this lecture?
In the previous video, we learned how to find a table with no ID of this Selenium WebDriver elements identification course. In this video, we’ll have to learn DOM in Selenium WebDriver.
DOM in Selenium Webdriver
So there is one more locator that we need to talk about that is available in Selenium WebDriver and that is called DOM which is short for document object model.
And basically, it uses the structure of the page to locate elements. You guys can find a lot more online just by searching how to use document object model in Selenium WebDriver.
But it’s not a good method of locating elements on a page. In fact, I don’t even want to teach it to you guys because it’s a waste of time.
You almost never have to use this method. In fact, I have never come across a time where I’ve needed to use it. Therefore, you probably don’t need to know it.
As always, I like to focus on those things, right the 20% over the learning that’s going to get you 80 percent of the results. And this part the DOM is just not part of that 20 %. It’s the, in fact, it’s not even part of the five percent. It’s just the knowledge that you may need one day for a very small situation that may come up one time in your life.
Therefore, it’s nice that you guys know about it. However, don’t waste your time learning it unless it’s extremely critical for you.
But I believe that 99% of you will be able to get by with everything that I taught you here without needing to utilize the document object model.
