Steps to reproduce

My test suite:

  • Ruby (with LapisLazuli gem)
  • Selenium(-grid)

Steps to reproduce

  • Download the VMware Win10 + Edge 14.14393 from the MS website
  • Download the 14.14393 webdriver from the MS website
  • Make sure the driver is in a folder that is known in the Windows PATH (For me that is c:\TA\drivers)
  • On my local machine startup a selenium-grid hub (version 3.4.0)
    • java -jar selenium-grid_3.4.0.jar -role hub
  • On the VM machine startup a selenium-grid node (version 3.4.0)
    • java -jar -Dwebdriver.edge.driver="C:\TA\driver\MicrosoftWebDriver.exe" selenium-grid_3.4.0.jar -role node -hub -browser browserName=MicrosoftEdge
    • 00:43:22.896 INFO - The node is registered to the hub and ready to use
  • On my local machine I have Ruby 2.3.3p222 (2016-11-21 revision 56859) [i386-mingw32] & the gem lapis_lazuli (1.1.0) - If you need to install this, just follow step-by-step guide
  • On my local machine I now start an irb session
    • Winkey+ r then type irb and hit enter
  • I make use of the lapis lazuli gem so this is how I connect to the remote browser (so far so good)
 irb(main):002:0> require 'lapis_lazuli'
=> true
irb(main):003:0> include LapisLazuli
=> Object
irb(main):004:0> browser :remote, {
irb(main):005:1*   :url => "http://localhost:4444/wd/hub",
irb(main):006:1*   :caps => {
irb(main):007:2* "browserName" => "MicrosoftEdge",
irb(main):008:2* }
irb(main):009:1>   }
Unable to find a configuration file, defaulting to empty config.yml.
No default device, nor a selected device was set. Browser default settings will be loaded. More info:
=> #"http://localhost:4444/wd/hub", :caps=>{"browserName"=>"MicrosoftEdge"}}, @browser_name="remote", @browser=#>

Browse to the url, find element, make sure it’s visible and click it

browser.goto ""
irb(main):011:0> element = browser.wait(:like => [:input, :name, 'q'])
=> #
irb(main):012:0> element.visible?
=> true

Issue - click command does not work on Edge (works fine on Chrome/Firefox)

    • This is the workaround I need to use for now.

      :like => [:input, :name, ‘q’],
      :message => ‘Element was not found.’

    • Just a small heads up.
      In the above mentioned scenario, I’ve seen the click work once (not sure if the steps were slightly different, or maybe it’s a timing issue?). After that one time success, I only got faillures like this.
      As long as this issue is present in the webdriver (And I’ve seen similar issues being reported with Java examples dating from ±1,5 years back), I cannot rely on it and will skip it from my TA run.
