Can eValid verify that web pages are live and clickable

Postby JDaniels » Tue Apr 03, 2018 9:57 am

Morning.

Does eValid have any way of verifying that links shown on a web page are active and clickable?

Thanks

A great question, thanks JDaniels.

The easy answer on this one is (please, no offence) to go ahead and click on the link and see what happens.`

If your test results in a navigation -- something you can see from the EventLog file -- then you know it is clickable: you just clicked.

But this answer may be too easy.

If you want to know, in advance, if an element will accept a "click" even then you probably need to dig around in the DOM of the page.

Here is a summary of eValid resources you can use:

It is easy to send a "click" event to a particular DOM element, but in some cases (but not all) you can tell if an element will accept a click event by looking to find if that element is an anchor-tag header that includes a URL in the node as the value of some property there.

Sorry, but there are so many ways that a DOM element can accept a click and do something (like navigate to a link) that a general statement isn't possible.

Good luck and let us know if you have further trouble.
