Parameter

Type

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.

pageFunction

Func | string

The function to be evaluated in this element's page's context. The first element matching the selector will be passed in as the first argument.

args

Params

Additional arguments to pass to pageFunction.

Returns:

Promise<Awaited<ReturnType<Func>>>

A promise to the result of the function.

Example

const tweetHandle = await page.$('.tweet');
expect(await tweetHandle.$eval('.like', node => node.innerText)).toBe('100');
expect(await tweetHandle.$eval('.retweets', node => node.innerText)).toBe('10');
