How can Selenium 4 relative locator change the way of testing?
When a web page element must be selected, but the element IDs are not consistent.
If the changing element to be selected is always above an element with fixed parameters, it can be selected as the element above the fixed element, for example.
That way, no matter what the changing elements ID’s are, the changes will not prevent the element from being selected.
Selenium 4 Relative locator comes with the below methods.
If you know XPath locating techniques very well, then Relative Locator does not add any value. However, the “near” method is a good value add.
You can also find an element with pixel distance from another element.
