Description

selector

Selector

selector to query page for. CSS selectors can be passed as-is and a Puppeteer-specific selector syntax allows quering by text, a11y role and name, and xpath and combining these queries across shadow roots. Alternatively, you can specify the selector type using a prefix.

Returns:

Promise<ElementHandle<NodeFor<Selector>> | null>

A element handle to the first element matching the given selector. Otherwise, null.
