Testing install/uninstall of chrome extensions

Post by lmpring » Fri May 16, 2014 5:16 pm

Hi all,

Does anyone have any experience automating the install / uninstall of extensions via chrome web store OR even more basic - verifying in chrome://extensions that a specific extensions (by name & version number) has been installed?

Thanks for any thoughts or pointers...

Hi Lisa,

Unfortunately I am not sure if I got your question correctly.

Please describe your plan in more detail.

Thank you in advance.

Regards,

Hi Markus,

I'm installing / uninstalling chrome extensions (chrome 35) and was having trouble identifying the elements / containers I needed to use -- even after instrumenting Chrome as per instructions and starting chrome with the --force-renderer-accessibility parameter. After speaking with Jay yesterday he suggested going into chrome://accessibility and specifically turning "global accessibility" on. After doing that - RanorexSpy was able to better identify the elements/containers/etc and I'm able to make much more progress verifying that the chrome extensions I'm testing have been installed.

Thanks for your time and help!
