Click on an element on the screen outside the visible area

Applying eValid to AJAX applications that require advanced DOM-based methods.

Click on an element on the screen outside the visible area

Postby MJones » Mon Nov 28, 2016 4:08 pm

Afternoon.

A question has popped up during the discussion and trial of eValid.

Can I click on an element that is outside the visible area of the screen?

Tell me what to do to solve this problem.

Thanks

Good question MJOnes.

Happy to try to answer.

What is visible and invisible on a web page is a function of your perspective.

If you are viewing the page on the browser face, indeed there may be some material that you have to scroll down to see.

But if you are viewing the page from the "inside" then there are no page boundaries.

As you may know, eValid works 100% on DOM information and where some object is in the DOM does not have anything to do with what you see on the screen.

eValid provides a separate "viewer" for what is in the DOM, described in this manual page:

The way you exploit this viewing capability is to use the structural testing commands in eValid to identify DOM elements and take action on them.

The basic steps for finding an element -- like one that you are thinking of that is not on the visible page -- is given here:
