Can we change inbuilt selenium methods of a webelement


  • Hi,

    I wanted to know if we can change the functionality of an inbuilt selenium method available to a webelement. 

    for example, I have a checkbox.  IWebElement myCheckbox

    Can i change the functionality of myCheckbox.Click() to do something else? for example highlight and then click..

    I understand implementing the interface IWebElement is one way. But that would need me to define all the methods and properties of IWebElement. 

    However i would like to change the functionality of only click() and retain the other functionalities and properties as such. 

    Thanks & Regards

  • Hi Sandeep P Raju,

    According to your description, you are using Selenium WebDriver, is it right?

    This forum is discuss Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor.

    If your problem related to Selenium WebDriver code, I suggest you post your problem to Selenium WebDriver forum.

    If not, please tell us where is the Checkbox and how do you use the IWebElement? Please provide more information, such as screenshot, code snippet, to help us understanding your problem.
