I'm new to automation testing, so I have a question regarding the code that I used to execute a simple test case: "Check if password is masked". 1. Open the browser; 2. Enter the URL “http://practice.automationtesting.in/my-account/”; 3. Click on "My Account"; 4. Enter some characters in the password field; 5. The password field should display the characters in asterisks or bullets such that the password is not visible on the screen.
class LoginTest(unittest.TestCase): baseURL = "http://practice.automationtesting.in/my-account/" username = "" password = "vq+fZ9!PpX" driver = webdriver.Chrome() @classmethod def setUpClass(cls): cls.driver.get(cls.baseURL) cls.driver.maximize_window() @classmethod def tearDownClass(cls): cls.driver.quit() def test_pass_type(self): lp = LoginPage(self.driver) lp.set_password(self.password) check_pass = self.driver.find_element_by_xpath("//*[@type='password']") assert check_pass.is_displayed(), "Your password is masked!"
My logic: The input type="password" defines a password field (characters are masked). So if the password field have type "password", that means that the characters are masked by default. Or I did it wrong? I'm sure there is another way to execute the step nr. 5. Can someone give me an example? Thank you.
