Code of the page:

 public Login Loginapplcn(String Uname)
            try {
                reportStep("The element : "+Uname+" is passed "+Uname, "PASS"); --->error
                            } catch (Exception e) {
                // TODO Auto-generated catch block
                reportStep("WebDriverException"+e.getMessage(), "FAIL");
        return this;
  • In reportStep method, see this line reportStep(Reporter.java:29). Can you please share what code of line is there ?

  • test.log(LogStatus.PASS, desc+test. addScreenCapture("C:\\Users\\wb469604\\Anu\\Selenium_Handson\\CFA_Automation_New\\screenshot"+snapNumber+".jpg"));

  • As per my understanding, desc is passing null in method. Check Loginapplcn() method Uname value is null. Or your screenshot is not capture in test.addScreenCapture() method

Missed to pass extenttest in the constructor. update it and code worked.

public Login(WebDriver driver, ExtentTest test){
        Login.driver = driver;
