I need a way to take screenshots of my functional tests. Right now I'm using Selenium 2 with C# bindings. I pretty much want to take a screenshot at the end of the test to make sure the desired page is displayed. Are there any particular tools you guys know of that I can incorporate into my C# code that will trigger a screenshot? I couldn't find a built-in Selenium 2 solution (without looking it over).
To do screenshots in Selenium 2 you need to do the following
driver = new FireFoxDriver(); // Should work in other Browser Drivers driver.Navigate().GoToUrl("http://www.theautomatedtester.co.uk"); Screenshot ss = ((ITakesScreenshot) driver).GetScreenshot(); //Use it as you want now string screenshot = ss.AsBase64EncodedString; byte screenshotAsByteArray = ss.AsByteArray; ss.SaveAsFile("filename", ImageFormat.Png); //use any of the built in image formating ss.ToString();//same as string screenshot = ss.AsBase64EncodedString;
That code should work, as I quickly tested it in IronPython Repl. See the IronPython code below
import clr clr.AddReference("WebDriver.Common.dll") clr.AddReference("WebDriver.Firefox.dll") from OpenQA.Selenium import * from OpenQA.Selenium.Firefox import * driver = FirefoxDriver() driver.Navigate().GoToUrl("http://www.theautomatedtester.co.uk") s = driver.GetScreenshot() s.AsBaseEncodedString # HUGE string appears in the REPL
