Document Object Model or DOM can access all the elements on the web page with the help of Javascript. If we inspect any element on a web page and navigate to the console in the Developer Tools, all the methods available to access the web elements shall be available.

Thus it has the capabilities that Selenium can perform. Selenium has the feature to execute Javascript code [to access the DOM] integrated with it. This is required whenever Selenium cannot identify an element or perform some actions on it.

Selenium contains the execute_script () method to execute Javascript commands which are passed as an argument to that method. Also, while working with DOM methods [getElementsByName and getElementsById and so on] fetch an array of matching elements. So we need to mention the index to locate a particular element. For example: getElementsByName (‘txt-box’) [0], refers to the first matching element on the web page.

Now let us see how to extract values from an edit box with the help of a Javascript executor.
