    • Tag set to incomplete

    Danie, Could you provide a bit more info?

    Version of webrat? Version of Rails/Sinatra/Merb? Test::Unit or Rspec or Cucumber?

    Maybe example html and field_with_id code use?

    • Title changed from “SeleniumSession needs to inherit from Session” to “field_with_id not working in Selenium”

    SeleniumSession definitely shouldn't be inheriting from Session, so I'm updating the title. :-)

    • Tag changed from incomplete to featurerequest, incomplete
    • State changed from “new” to “open”

    We need to figure out what it means to use a field locator directly in Selenium mode. Perhaps we should start with the use cases.

    Danie -- What were you trying to accomplish?

    Bryan, I think I have a similar or same problem. I'm using webrat 0.4.1 with Selenium (1.1.14) and selenium-client (1.2.14). The Then step fails on field_with_id:

    When /^I click on the image$/ do visit new_message_path click_link "Brad Sucks - Dropping out of School", :javascript => true end

    Then /^the image should show up as selected gift$/ do puts response.body response.should contain("Brad Sucks - Dropping out of School") response.should have_selector("span.small")#, :content => "Brad Sucks - Dropping out of School") field_with_id("message_gift_id").value.should == @ringtone_gift.name end

    The error is:

     undefined method `field_with_id' for #<Webrat::SeleniumSession:0x370aec4> (NoMethodError)
      (eval):2:in `field_with_id'
      ./features/step_definitions/send_gifts_steps.rb:19:in `Then /^the image should show up as selected gift$/'
      features/enhanced/send_gifts.feature:10:in `Then the image should show up as selected gift'

    So when I click on the link ("Brad Sucks..."), it invokes a javascript call which should populate a hidden field. The test runs fine as I can see from the puts that the hidden field has been set correctly:

    I've also tried to use field_named but failed the same way.

    for some reason the input tag didn't get uploaded.

    • State changed from “open” to “awaiting-patch”

    This feature needs to be implemented. Marking as awaiting patch.
