Selenium IDE typeKeys does not fire event 5


You may have an input on a form that fires an onblur, onFocus, onChange, onKeyUp, onKeyDown, etc event that doesn’t get fired as it should. Use the “fireEvent” command in selenium ide after entering the value.

    How does the fireEvent exactly work ? I have the below code added in the Selenium IDE source code, but I still do not see any event triggerred even after we change the value in the pickUpLocation using typeKeys. Please respond. Thank You

    Hi All,

    I am facing the same issue for webforms testing.
