Selenium – Search for text on page
  • Last Updated : 03 Mar, 2021

Prerequisite:- Selenium

Selenium is a powerful tool for controlling web browsers through programs and performing browser automation. It is functional for all browsers, works on all major OS and its scripts are written in various languages i.e Python, Java, C#, etc, we will be working with Python.

In this article, we will learn how to know whether the text is on a web page or not using selenium in python.

Approach:

  • First, we will open the chrome driver using the Chrome() method in the Selenium web driver
  • Assign the Web URL.
  • Then the driver will open the Give Web URL
  • Get Web Page Source Code using page_source property.
  • Assign the text to be searched.
  • After getting the web page text, we will search whether the text is present or not.

Below is the implementation:



Python3




# import webdriver 
from selenium import webdriver
  
# create webdriver object 
driver = webdriver.Chrome()
  
# URL of the website 
  
# Opening the URL 
driver.get(url) 
  
# Getting current URL source code 
get_source = driver.page_source
  
# Text you want to search
search_text = "Floor"
  
# print True if text is present else False
print(search_text in get_source)

Output:

True
