Image from store POM Builder – Auto-generate CSS/XPath Locator
Description from store Save time by letting POM Builder instantly suggest the most reliable locator for your inspected web element. The suggestion might be either XPath, CSS selector, By.id, By.name, By.linkText, etc. You can use these locators for all automation frameworks including Selenium, Protractor, Robot Framework, webdriver.io, TestArchitect Enterprise and TestArchitect Gondola. WHO IS IT FOR? * Test automation engineers who specialize in web testing using Selenium, Protractor, Robot Framework, webdriver.io and TestArchitect Automation Suite. WHY USE IT? SMART GEN * POM Builder automatically generates the best locator for your web element of interest. The best locator should be [1] short, [2] reliable and [3] easy to understand. * POM Builder’s smart algorithm automatically detects and ignores dynamic IDs generated by some front-end frameworks. * If you don’t want to use the suggested locator or if your project’s convention dictates a certain type of locators, you can manually select the locator type that fits you best. LOCATOR TEST * You can evaluate the suggested locator or your customized locator to check whether that locator can uniquely identify the web element of interest. POM CODE GEN * After designing the best locator for your web element, POM Builder can help you generate the corresponding POM code snippet. You can paste this code snippet directly into your Selenium, Protractor and TestArchitect project. NOTES: * POM Builder does not track your browsing history in any way, nor does it transmit any data over the internet. All data remains on your local hard disk drive at all times. However, POM Builder needs "webNavigation" and "tabs" permissions in order to generate locators for elements inside iFrames.

  • (2020-02-23) John Engelke: What the other users are trying to say is that the copy functionality fails. I installed this and it initially worked, however, shortly thereafter the copy functionality broke, and I could not use it by right clicking. I'm on a Mac with a few other Chrome extensions installed, including uBlock Origin and Selenium IDE. Because it doesn't work (really only worked the first try) I rated it appropriately.
