def is_existing(
self,
locator: Union[_Locator, str],
locator_variables: dict = {},
timeout: int = 30
) -> bool

Check whether the specified element of the web page exists.

Remarks:
BrowserTab.is_existing is different with the method clicknium.is_existing when locating the UI element.

  • clicknium.is_existing() is for both web and window UI element, and not limited to a specific scope.
  • clicknium.chrome.open("https://bing.com").is_existing() will locate element in its parent web page.

   Locator string, the visit path of locator for target UI element, eg: ‘locator.chrome.bing.search_sb_form_q’, locator store is chrome, and locator name is search_sb_form_q. For more details, please refer to Locator.
 locator_variables: dict
   Locator variables, set to initialize parameters in locator, eg: { "row": 1, "column": 1}, more about variables, please refer to Parametric Locator.
 timeout: int
   Timeout for the operation, the unit is second, and the default value is 30 seconds.
