The test case is to check if the tooltip message shows.

My html code is as:

<td id="pendingBalance" align="right">
<a onmouseover="displayHelpPopup(this,arrHelp[20][0]);" onmouseout="closePopup();" href="#">
<span class="BoldFont">$0.00</span>

When user moves mouse to $0.00 then tooltip shows some text.

Please help me with the solution to check that the tooltip is displaying with the correct message.

  • Don't, use selenium for functional testing, while is can do UI testing, that is not playing to its strength, UI testing is the domain of human testing not automation. Dec 2, 2018 at 12:58

You have to mouseOver to $0.00. 1) If you need click, perform click and find the tooltip.

Actions actions = new Actions(driver);
   actions.moveToElement(driver
                .findElement(By.xpath("//span[contains(text(),'0.00')]")));
    actions.perform();
    driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(60, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
    actions.click().build().perform();
    WebElement element=driver.findElement(By.xpath("xpath of your tooltip")));
    element.click();

2) Else directly find the tooltip.

Actions actions = new Actions(driver);
   actions.moveToElement(driver
                .findElement(By.xpath("//span[contains(text(),'0.00')]")));
    actions.perform();
    driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(60, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
    WebElement element=driver.findElement(By.xpath("xpath of your tooltip")));
    element.click();

  • @Naveen: 1) post the exact tooltip text(you mentioned it as some text). Your html code doesnot show any tooltip text.

Tooltip is your example is triggered by javascript code. To automate this process you have to move to the element containign the tooltip text and execute its javascript code:

locate the element:

    WebElement link = driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("#pendingBalance > a"));

perform an action that moves to the element:

    Actions action = new Actions(driver);
    action.moveToElement(link).perform();

execute javascript function 'onmouseover':

    JavascriptExecutor js =  (JavascriptExecutor) driver;
    js.executeScript("arguments[0].onmouseover()", link);
0

Try this piece of code:

Actions driver = new Actions(driver)  
driver.moveToElement(driver.findElement(By.xpath("//span[contains(text(),'$0.00')]"))).build().perform();
