If you want to check whether a given object is visible in the UI of the page
then you can try:



ie.hidden (:attribute, property).visible? ==false then

puts 'Object is hidden'


puts 'Object is not hidden'




Note that you have to use hidden instead of text_field or button

Maybe something like:

browser.text_field(:id, 'id').visible?


Hope that helps.
