anyone have any experience with interacting with ng-select dropdowns in cypress?
my dev team is telling me that in CLI mode, a lot of errors are stemming from ng-select components and visibility / actionability that manifests in CLI mode but not GUI mode
obviously that's very adversely affecting our CI efforts
Victor Aprea
We get this sort of thing a lot in the CLI
Timed out retrying: expected '<span.ng-value-label>' to be 'visible' This element `<span.ng-value-label>` is not visible because it has CSS property: `position: fixed` and it's being covered by another element: `<div class="ng-input">...</div>`
Kalaivanee Ramsekar
can someone help me how to get the value of the property from the response in cypress?
Victor Aprea
I have elaborated and posted my comments above in a Stack Overflow post here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/63384937/how-to-avoid-cypress-flakiness-using-ng-select-elements
any help or suggestions from the Cypress team and community would be greatly appreciated

Does anyone else have the issue since upgrading to 4.12.1 that submitting a form doesn't work? Its working fine with 4.11
Max Savchuk
Hi, could anyone please explain why 'You cannot assign or work with the return values of any Cypress command. Commands are enqueued and run asynchronously.' (from Doc)
and why the below code doesn't work as expected.
const inputField = cy.get('[data-cy=inputField]')
Sam Grönblom
Has anyone seen the problem of Cypress reporting an error for an "after each" hook, even if you are not using any "after" hooks at all?
Mikail Kilic
cy.get('[data-cy=inputField]').then(input => {
    // Use cy.wrap to use Cypress comands again otherwise use jQuery
that should do your job @max.savchuk_gitlab
Max Savchuk
@Mikail184_gitlab thanks for the answer, i will try to use this

i am supposed to generate a report from UI. But i am not sure how much time it takes to download.So in this situation i just cant set wait time .Can any one suggest the ideal way to achieve this?
Mikail Kilic
go to your console and in network, and clear the history and generate the report to see where it comes from, after that use cy.request()
            method: 'GET',
            url: ''

Hi. Is it possible to make a list of opened tabs?
The case is:

  1. I click on a button
  2. It generates the link and opens it in a new tab
  3. I have to navigate to this page and do some verifications

In case that Cypress does not support multi-tabs. It would be good to have a list of the opened tabs. So I can navigate to them.

Does anyone know how to use EventSource? I can see support was added for it but there is no documentation to speak of.
I am trying to follow the example here cypress-io/cypress#2747 but no luck unfortunately
Hey all, the issue with '.get' that scrolls the screen is really annoying and it seems that it hasn't been fixed since 2017.
Is this on the roadmap? Are you aware of this issue and you think on a solution? any feedback is appreciated
I tried some of the workaround and they work on some of my tests but they don't work on all of them.
I find it really difficult using Cypress with this issue.
Can someone help me debug an issue? The last couple of days my tests have been failing because when I click a button to submit a login form the page just reloads with an empty form. I can't reproduce this manually and nothing in the tests or application code as changed since the issue started

Hi, I'm working with Windows 10( Cypress: 4.11.0 and Browser: Chrome 84). When I'm trying to run test on Electron then everything is ok, but when I try to run tests with Chrome then Cypress is opening window with my application url ( url from baseURL - > e.g https://application-directory.com)), but other parameters from cy.visit('?/client_no=1003') gone.
anyone have a way to deal with code coverage for parallel runs? I.E., in pipelines, it tries to write the same file from the config for each machine...

Hello - I would like to understand how I can assert data in a pdf file? Basically, the file is already downloaded.
I have tried assertions in the callback loop, but cypress seems to skip it.

Here is my setup:


const parsePdf = async (pdfName) => {
const pdfPathname = path.join(repoRoot, pdfName)
let dataBuffer = fs.readFileSync(pdfPathname)
return pdf(dataBuffer);

module.exports = (on, config) => {
on('task', {
getPdfContent (pdfName) {
return String(parsePdf(pdfName))
Test File "admin.reports.spec.js"

import LoginPageObjects from "../../support/pageObjects/common.pageObjects/login.pageObjects";
import ReportsDelegateReportPageObjects
from "../../support/pageObjects/common.pageObjects/reports.delegateReport.pageObjects";


const loginPage = new LoginPageObjects();
const reportsPage = new ReportsDelegateReportPageObjects();

describe('Delegate Report Functionality', function (){

beforeEach(() => {
    // Provides admin credentials
    // Navigates to Report Menu, Selects Report, Downloads PDF report.

it('should return the report and verify the data in it', function () {
    cy.readFile('C:/Users/$user/Downloads/delegate_report.pdf', 'base64').should('contain.value', "Report")

@vadymstroiu maybe this will be useful for you: from cypress recipes

Hi. In my integration tests, I am visiting a page and making assertions about the contents (texts and table) displayed. After cy.visit('the url to visit'), Cypress loads all the contents in the page except for the table. If I do something like: cy.visit("the url to visit").wait("1000"), I see the contents of the table displayed, but I want to find other ways of doing this since wait("time") is described as anti-pattern. Any ideas on this?

@jameseg you would need to combine them yourself, which is not ideal

Hi All, is there a way bypass waiting for page load event?
Eduardo Del Balso
Hi folks, I'm in a situation where if I do a cy.get('some-lookup').whithin(() => return cy.get('some-other-lookup')).should('contain','some-val'), but if I do 2-3 right after each other, only the first works and the subsequent ones fail. If I comment out the first one, then the second one works but third onwards fails, if I comment third, fourth works but fifth fails, etc... basically only the first one works and I'm not sure why
