PlaywrightContrib.PageObjects 2.0.0

Suggested Alternatives


Additional Details

This package is based on the IElementHandle interface.
The use of ElementHandle is discouraged, use Locator objects and web-first assertions instead.
You can use the vanilla API to achieve the same thing without using this package:

dotnet add package PlaywrightContrib.PageObjects --version 2.0.0
NuGet\Install-Package PlaywrightContrib.PageObjects -Version 2.0.0
This command is intended to be used within the Package Manager Console in Visual Studio, as it uses the NuGet module's version of Install-Package.
<PackageReference Include="PlaywrightContrib.PageObjects" Version="2.0.0" />
For projects that support PackageReference, copy this XML node into the project file to reference the package.
paket add PlaywrightContrib.PageObjects --version 2.0.0
#r "nuget: PlaywrightContrib.PageObjects, 2.0.0"
#r directive can be used in F# Interactive and Polyglot Notebooks. Copy this into the interactive tool or source code of the script to reference the package.

PlaywrightContrib.PageObjects 🎭🧪

build CodeFactor

PlaywrightContrib.PageObjects is a library for writing browser tests using the page object pattern with the Playwright API.

using FluentAssertions;
using Microsoft.Playwright;
using PlaywrightContrib.FluentAssertions;
using PlaywrightContrib.PageObjects;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

var playwright = await Playwright.CreateAsync();
var browser = await playwright.Chromium.LaunchAsync();
var page = await browser.NewPageAsync();

var repoPage = await page.GotoAsync<GitHubRepoPage>("");
var link = await repoPage.Link;
await link.Should().HaveContentAsync("playwright-dotnet");
await link.Should().HaveAttributeValueAsync("href", "/microsoft/playwright-dotnet");

var actionsPage = await repoPage.GotoActionsAsync();
var latestStatus = await actionsPage.GetLatestWorkflowRunStatusAsync();
latestStatus.Should().Be("This workflow run completed successfully.");

public class GitHubRepoPage : PageObject
    [Selector("#repository-container-header strong a")]
    public virtual Task<IElementHandle> Link { get; }

    public virtual Task<IElementHandle> Actions { get; }

    public async Task<GitHubActionsPage> GotoActionsAsync()
        await (await Actions).ClickAsync();
        return await Page.WaitForNavigationAsync<GitHubActionsPage>();

public class GitHubActionsPage : PageObject
    public async Task<string> GetLatestWorkflowRunStatusAsync()
        var status = await Page.QuerySelectorAsync("#partial-actions-workflow-runs .Box-row div[title]");
        return await status.GetAttributeAsync("title");

Deprecation ⚠️

This package is legacy and is no longer maintained:

  • Is is based on the IElementHandle interface and was first built with version 1.12.1 of Microsoft.Playwright
  • The use of ElementHandle is discouraged, use Locator objects and web-first assertions instead
  • The Locator API was introduced in version 1.14 of Microsoft.Playwright
  • Locator vs ElementHandle describes the difference between the old and new way to access elements
  • You can use the vanilla API to achieve the same thing without using this package:

Page Objects

A page object wraps an 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
    public virtual Task<IElementHandle> Heading { get; }

    public virtual Task<GitHubHeader> Header { get; }

    public async Task<GitHubSearchPage> SearchAsync(string text)
        await (await Header).SearchAsync(text);
        return Page.To<GitHubSearchPage>();

Element Objects

An element object wraps an 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 virtual Task<IElementHandle> ThreeBars { get; }

    public async Task SearchAsync(string text)
        var input = await SearchInput;
        if (await input.IsHiddenAsync()) await (await ThreeBars).ClickAsync();
        await input.TypeAsync(text);
        await input.PressAsync("Enter");

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 one of:

  • Task<IElementHandle>
  • Task<IReadOnlyList<IElementHandle>>
  • Task<ElementObject>
  • Task<IReadOnlyList<ElementObject>>


public virtual Task<IElementHandle> SelectorForElementHandle { get; }

public virtual Task<IReadOnlyList<IElementHandle>> SelectorForElementHandleList { get; }

public virtual Task<FooElementObject> SelectorForElementObject { get; }

public virtual Task<IReadOnlyList<BarElementObject>> SelectorForElementObjectList { get; }
