Capture the Screen on Test failure - WebDriver


Screen captures of the browser session helps you to show error conditions.

#JAVA

WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver();
driver.get("http://www.google.com/");
File scrFile = ((TakesScreenshot)driver).getScreenshotAs(OutputType.FILE);
FileUtils.copyFile(scrFile, new File("c:\\sample.jpeg"),true);

#Python

#!/usr/bin/env python
from selenium import webdriver
browser = webdriver.Firefox()
browser.get('http://www.google.com/')
browser.save_screenshot('screenie.png')
browser.quit()


Example Test
[Note:- "Scripts in Orange color are mandatory"]

import java.io.File;
import org.apache.commons.io.FileUtils;
import org.openqa.selenium.OutputType;
import org.openqa.selenium.TakesScreenshot;
  
  public class classname{
  private WebDriver driver;
  private String baseUrl;
  private boolean acceptNextAlert = true;
  private StringBuffer verificationErrors = new StringBuffer();

  @Before
  public void setUp() throws Exception {
    driver = new FirefoxDriver();
    baseUrl = "http://in.yahoo.com/";
    driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(30, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
  }

  @Test
  public void testWww() throws Exception {
    driver.get(baseUrl + "/?p=us");
    driver.findElement(By.id("p_13838465-p")).clear();
    driver.findElement(By.id("p_13838465-p")).sendKeys("screen");
    driver.findElement(By.id("search-submit")).click();
    Thread.sleep(2000);
    File scrFile = ((TakesScreenshot)driver).getScreenshotAs(OutputType.FILE);
    FileUtils.copyFile(scrFile, new File("c:\\sample.jpeg"),true);
    Thread.sleep(2000);
  }

@After
  public void tearDown() throws Exception {
    driver.quit();
    String verificationErrorString = verificationErrors.toString();
    if (!"".equals(verificationErrorString)) {
      fail(verificationErrorString);
    }
  }
}


For Selenium RC,
Use the command: captureEntirePageScreenshotAndWait
Target: C:\\$(image).jpg

This cmd won't work for WebDriver

Example with 'captureScreenshot()'

Selenium selenium;
selenium = new DefaultSelenium(seleniumServer, 4444,
    "*firefox", "http://www.google.com");
selenium.start();
selenium.open("/");
selenium.captureScreenshot("C:\screenshot.png");


Examples with 'captureEntirePageScreenshot()'


Selenium selenium;
selenium = new DefaultSelenium(seleniumServer, 4444,
    "*firefox", "http://www.google.com");
selenium.start();
selenium.open("/");
selenium.captureEntirePageScreenshot("C:\screenshot.png","");

  6. I am using selenium to automate testing in IE using C#. When the case fails I take the screenshot. But the screenshot does not capture the pop up.
