Selenium. catching Body class value

I have a site where my script changes language on the site. To verify
that the script ends up on correct page I want to verify that body class
contains correct locale, SWE, GB, USA and so on. But I don’t find a way
of catching the value between class=" ">.

When I using :tag_name .text i got all text on the page. And if I use
:class I need to know the locale…

test = driver.find_element(:tag_name, “body”).text #Take all text on the
site
puts test

###E.G"###

Any suggestion of how I can do it?

You can use XPATH with “selenium-webdriver”. I hope that will work.
You didn’t give here the html code.If you provide I can give you a
better idea.

Thanks

If you give the HTML to Nokogiri you should be able to search it much
more accurately.

Also, if you haven’t tried it, give Watir-Webdriver a try. There’s a
much better API which should give you more flexibility when searching.

If you assign test to the element, instead of just the text of the
element, the attributes should be available as test[:id], test[:class]
and so on…

Thanks for your reply! You can see the html below.

  1. When you click Swedish, SWE turns up in the body class.
... ...
  1. when you click English, GB turns up in the body class.
... ...

Ans so on.

Thanks in advance

A big thank you!! It worked to use test[:class] :smiley:
