In this video, we will go through the concept of DOM in Selenium Webdriver of the Elements Identification course.
Selenium Tutorial – DOM in Selenium Webdriver
So there is one more locator that we need to talk about and that is available in selenium web driver and that is called Domm 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 web driver but it’s not a good method of locating elements on that 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. And 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 percent over the learning that’s going to get you 80 percent of the results. And this part of the DOM is just not part of those 20 percent that’s for.
In fact it’s not even part of the 5 percent is just 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 percent of you will be able to get by with everything that I taught you here without needing to utilize the document object model.
