Little history

ExecuteAutomation YouTube channel started on end of 2014 and featured very few videos which focused mainly Specflow and Selenium C# video, later from 2016 ExecuteAutomation YouTube video gained more popularity and the viewers demands increased with range of questions from across different tools not just with Specflow or Selenium.

  • Selenium with C#
  • Robotium
  • Appium
  • TFS
  • Jenkins
  • Coypu
  • Moq
  • Xamarin.UITest

Marking one of the first YouTube channel to feature MOST VIDEOS EVER on automation testing.

At Present

Identifying broken links with Selenium C#

In this post we will discuss one of the common question asked by many readers of ExecuteAutomation, which is the topic name.

Its actually fairly very simple though, I just wrote 10 lines of code to achieve it (you might have even better solution than one I have)

So, here is the pseudo code

  1. Navigate to the URL of site you are interested in
  2. Get all the links of page using FindElements(By.Tag(“a”)) method
  3. Iterate through the page URLs and get the attributes href using GetAttribute(“href”) method
  4. Use Simple WebRequest and HttpWebResponse class to get the page response and status code.

So, here is the output

Here is the source code
