Capybara: How to fill a textarea without an 'id'?

I am in need to

fill_in
a textarea which does not have an
id
. Following the inspection:

<textarea class="stock-description-input js-short-description-textarea" placeholder="Select a product or enter a description" maxlength="64"></textarea>


Have you got an idea how to do it?

Answer

There are different location techniques and ways to get to the desired element. stock-description-input class looks like a good thing to rely on. Use send_keys() to fill the area:

text_area = first(:css, 'textarea.stock-description-input').native
text_area.send_keys('Test')
