build CodeFactor

PuppeteerSharp.Contrib.PageObjects is a library for writing browser tests using the page object pattern with the Puppeteer Sharp API.


Page Objects

A page object wraps an PuppeteerSharp.IPage and should encapsulate the way tests interact with a web page.

Create page objects by inheriting PageObject and declare properties decorated with [Selector] attributes.

public class GitHubStartPage : PageObject
    [Selector("main h1")]
    public virtual Task<IElementHandle> Heading { get; }

    public virtual Task<GitHubHeader> Header { get; }

    public async Task<GitHubSearchPage> SearchAsync(string text)
        var task = Page.WaitForNavigationAsync<GitHubSearchPage>();
        await (await Header).SearchAsync(text);
        return await task;

Element Objects

An element object wraps an PuppeteerSharp.IElementHandle and should encapsulate the way tests interact with an element of a web page.

Create element objects by inheriting ElementObject and declare properties decorated with [Selector] attributes.

public class GitHubHeader : ElementObject
    public virtual Task<IElementHandle> SearchInput { get; }

    public async Task SearchAsync(string text)
        var input = await SearchInput;
        if (await input.IsHiddenAsync())
            await Page.ClickAsync("[aria-label=\"Toggle navigation\"][data-view-component=\"true\"]");
            await Page.ClickAsync("[data-target=\"qbsearch-input.inputButtonText\"]");
        await input.TypeAsync(text);
        await input.PressAsync(Key.Enter);
        await Page.WaitForSelectorAsync("[data-testid=\"results-list\"]");

Selector Attributes

[Selector] attributes can be applied to properties on a PageObject or ElementObject.

Properties decorated with a [Selector] attribute must be a:

  • public
  • virtual
  • asynchronous
  • getter

that returns:

  • Task<IElementHandle>
  • Task<IElementHandle[]>
  • Task<ElementObject> or
  • Task<ElementObject[]>


public virtual Task<IElementHandle> SelectorForElementHandle { get; }

public virtual Task<IElementHandle[]> SelectorForElementHandleArray { get; }

public virtual Task<FooElementObject> SelectorForElementObject { get; }

public virtual Task<BarElementObject[]> SelectorForElementObjectArray { get; }

Extensions for IPage

Where T is a PageObject:

  • GoBackAsync<T>
  • GoForwardAsync<T>
  • GoToAsync<T>
  • ReloadAsync<T>
  • To<T>
  • WaitForNavigationAsync<T>
  • WaitForResponseAsync<T>

Where T is an ElementObject:

  • QuerySelectorAllAsync<T>
  • QuerySelectorAsync<T>
  • WaitForSelectorAsync<T>
  • WaitForXPathAsync<T>
  • XPathAsync<T>

Extensions for IElementHandle

Where T is an ElementObject:

  • QuerySelectorAllAsync<T>
  • QuerySelectorAsync<T>
  • To<T>
  • WaitForSelectorAsync<T>
  • XPathAsync<T>
