How to use protractor to wait for new tab to be created ?
Introduction: Protractor is an end-to-end test framework developed for AngularJS applications, however, it also works for non-Angular JS applications. It runs tests against the application interacting with it as a real user would, running in a real browser. In this article, we are going to use Protractor to check how we can wait for a new tab to be created?
Prerequisite: Installation and Setup of Protractor
Approach: We are going to create a basic test program in which we are going to check how we can wait for a new tab to be created? All the Protractor tests will have a file that will contain the configuration and this will be the initial file that will initiate the test.
Below is the step-by-step implementation of the above approach.
Step 1: We have to first create a conf.js file consisting of the configuration to be used with Protractor.
Step 2: We will create the HTML file called test.html which will create a new tab.
Step 3: We will create the test.js file. In this file, we are going to access the above HTML file and then going wait for the new tab to be created. The browser is a global created by Protractor, which is used for browser-level commands such as navigation with browser.get() method. The describe and its syntax are from the Jasmine framework where describe is a description of your test while it defines the steps for the test.
Step 4: Finally, we will run the configuration file using the command given below. This will run the configuration file and the test will be run as shown in the output below.
