Selenium PageFactory does not work in .NET Core 2.0

In this post we will discuss one of the recent burning issue with Selenium PageFactory which does not work in .NET Core 2.0 framework.

Selenium 3.6.0 and 3.7.0 are the first official package to natively support .Net Standard 2.0 as opposed to earlier version which even though works in .NET Core 2.0 framework, will still see warnings in references as shown below

 

But the problem now with Selenium 3.6.0 and Selenium 3.7.0 is its missing one of the most important Class PageFactory used for Page Object Model and Page Navigation, which we can literally see from the Object browser of visual studio in comparison with .NET framework 4.7

 

Here is the change log of Selenium 3.6.0

Running Chrome in headless mode with Selenium C#

In this post we are going to discuss about running Chrome in headless mode with Selenium C#

Chrome headless

Headless Chrome is a way to run Chrome browser without the actual browser UI being spawned. Essentially its running Chrome without chrome! It brings all modern web platform features provided by Chromium and the Blink rendering engine to the command line and automation testing tool such as Selenium in our case

Where is it useful ?

  • A headless browser is a great tool for automated testing and server environments where you don’t need a visible UI shell.
  • And again its not a completely new technology, since there are other big players in this area such as
    • PhantomJS
    • HTMLUnitDriver

So when is Chrome Headless available ?

  • Chrome Headless is supported from Chrome 59.x and above.
  • The current stable version for Windows 10 is Chrome 60.x
  • ChromeDriver v2.30 and above supports headless mode

What changes should I make in my Existing Selenium test ?

Running C# code on Raspberry Pi 3 with .Net core 2.0

In our last video in YouTube channel of ExecuteAutomation we discussed how to install Windows 10 IoT on RaspberryPi 3 and access it via Powershell and device portal, in this post we will discuss how to run an simple C# console application on RaspberryPi 3 with .Net Core 2.0 framework.

Getting stage ready for .Net core 2.0 app

Before we start writing console application, first we need to have following pre-requisite environment setup

  1. Installing .Net Core 2.0 SDK in Windows 10 host machine, which you can see from here
  2. Should have at least VS code or VS 2017 community edition (to edit C# code)

Coding

Here is the simple code written to execute on RaspberryPi 3 running Windows 10 IoT

After Coding

Connect with Raspberry Pi 3 via power shell and enable FTP service to transfer file from host machine to Raspberry Pi 3
