Pseudo DOM API

To a certain extent QF-Test exposes the DOM of a web based SUT to 'SUT script' nodes. This API is not equivalent to working directly at the JavaScript level which can be done via the methods toJS and evalJS described in this chapter. With this API is possible to traverse the DOM and retrieve and set attributes of the respective nodes, but not to manipulate the structure of the DOM. Thus this API is useful for implementing Name- or FeatureResolvers as described in section 49.1.

NoteThe DOM can differ depending on the browser, so you should try not to rely too much on child indexes in your resolvers or scripts in case of cross-browser testing if viable.

QF-Test's DOM API comprises a hierarchy of the following five classes:

The abstract Node class
The DocumentNode class
The FrameNode class
The DomNode class
The DialogNode class
