Creating an extension class for web tables

Selenium WebDriver provides the WebElement interface to work with various types of HTML elements. It also provides helper classes to work with the Select element. However, there is no built-in class to support the web tables or the <table> elements. In this recipe, we will implement a helper class for web tables. Using this class, we will retrieve properties and perform some basic operations on a web table element.

Getting ready

Create a new Java class, which we will use to implement support for the table elements.

How to do it...

Let's implement the web table extension code with using the following steps:

  1. Add a constructor for the WebTable class, and for the setter and getter property methods as well. The WebTable constructor will accept the WebElement object, as shown in the following code:

    package com.secookbook.examples.chapter09;
    import org.openqa.selenium.NoSuchElementException;
    import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement...
