We can extract text of an element with a selenium webdriver. This is done with the help of a text method. It fetches the text in an element which can be later validated.
First we need to identify the element with the help of any locators. Suppose we want to get the text of an element in below page.
from selenium import webdriver driver = webdriver.Chrome (executable_path="C:\\chromedriver.exe") # maximize with maximize_window() driver.maximize_window() driver.get("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/index.htm") # identify element l=driver.find_element_by_css_selector("h4") # get text and print print("Text is: " + l.text) driver.close()
