    • The value of window.screenTop is 0 in Microsoft EdgeHTML 17.17134, but it is non-zero before the version

      Recently, many auto testing cases failed in Edge in one of our products.
      We found one of the reasons is: the value of window.screenTop is 0 in the latest Edge version(Microsoft Edge 42.17134.1.0, Microsoft EdgeHTML 17.17134), but it is non-zero value in the old version.
      How to get the old value of the window.screenTop in the latest version?

      • Add proxy support to webdriver

        To me, this looks like MicrosoftWebdriver does not support proxy configuration:

        https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/webdriver

        I’m using BrowserMobProxy to check if the pages loaded in selenium. It works fine for chrome, firefox and opera. I can’t get this to work with edge. Here’s my code:

        public static void main(String[] args) {

        String url = "http://gitlab.com";
        String edgeDriverPath = "resources/MicrosoftWebDriver.exe";

        BrowserMobProxyServer proxy = new BrowserMobProxyServer();

        Proxy seleniumProxy = ClientUtil.createSeleniumProxy(proxy);
        DesiredCapabilities capabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
        capabilities.setCapability(CapabilityType.PROXY, seleniumProxy);

        System.setProperty("webdriver.edge.driver",edgeDriverPath);

        EdgeOptions options = new EdgeOptions();

        proxy.start(0);
        seleniumProxy.setHttpProxy("localhost:"+ proxy.getPort());
        seleniumProxy.setSslProxy("localhost:"+ proxy.getPort());
        options.setProxy(seleniumProxy);

        WebDriver driver = new EdgeDriver(EdgeDriverService.createDefaultService(),options);

        proxy.newHar(url);

        driver.get(url);

        Har har = proxy.getHar();
        HarLog harlog =…

          • The WebDriver should not close currently open windows when starting automated testing

            I use Edge as my primary browser, but I also use NCrunch to drive automated UI testing for our web-based applications. When NCrunch kicks off tests impacted by changes I have made, by Edge browsers shut down, with all the tabs and windows lost forever.
            The IE Web Driver didn't have this issue and while I know that the browsers are not the same, the expectation is that they would behave similarly.
            Allowing the Edge Web Driver to trigger and manage its own windows, separate from any that the user has opened and is currently using, would be a welcomed…

            • download dialog

              in browserstack, the session hangs in a download test because a download dialog box blocks the browser closing.
              I suggest adding a capability to autodismiss this dialog or autoblock downloads.
              The reason we need this test is that we also perform actions related to the download and would be useful to test the entire flow.
              Thanks!

              • Enable whitespace trimming for Get Element Text in Microsoft WebDriver for Edge

                In Edge WebDriver, the get element text always show extra whitespace characters as prefix and/ or suffix. Probably it returns an element's text as rendered using innerText. This is not in line with other webdrivers like Chrome, Safari and "Microsoft" IE webdriver.
                Will be good if you can fix it to trim the extra whitespace characters by default. Will be very helpful, Thanks!
