AttributeError: 'LoginPage' object has no attribute 'driver'


I have a base class. Inheriting base class, login.py runs without any problem. But when I run Company_Management.py its giving me:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/sohel/eclipse-workspace/Copell/copell/Company_Management.py", line 22, in test_company em.test_logn() File "/home/sohel/eclipse-workspace/Copell/copell/login.py", line 15, in test_logn driver =self.driver AttributeError: 'LoginPage' object has no attribute 'driver'

What I am trying to do is that, when I will run Company_Management.py it will excute test_logn(self) method first then will click on 2 urls from xpath.

<h2>base.py</h2> import unittest import time from selenium import webdriver class Login(unittest.TestCase): @classmethod def setUpClass(cls): cls.driver = webdriver.Chrome('/home/sohel/eclipse-workspace/chromedriver') cls.driver.maximize_window() cls.driver.get("https:www.car.com/login?back_url=%2F") time.sleep(3) @classmethod def tearDownClass(cls): cls.driver.close() if __name__ == '__main__': unittest.main() <h2>login.py</h2> import base import unittest import time class LoginPage(base.Login): def test_logn(self): driver =self.driver driver.find_element_by_id("email").clear() driver.find_element_by_id("email").send_keys("keya@gmail.com") driver.find_element_by_id("password").clear() driver.find_element_by_id("password").send_keys("Abcd1234") driver.find_element_by_xpath("//button[@type='submit']").click() def test_logout(self): self.driver.find_element_by_xpath("//li[9]/a/span").click() if __name__ == '__main__': unittest.main() <h2>Company_Management.py</h2> import base import unittest import login import logging import time class CompanyManagement(base.Login): def test_company(self): driver = self.driver em = login.LoginPage() em.test_logn() driver.find_element_by_xpath("//ec-ui-side-bar/div/div/ul/li[3]/a/span").click() driver.find_element_by_xpath("//ec-ui-side-bar/div/div/ul/li[3]/ul/li/a/span").click() time.sleep(3) if __name__ == '__main__': unittest.main()

Both your classes extend <a href="https://docs.python.org/2/library/unittest.html#unittest.TestCase" rel="nofollow">[Python]: <em>class</em> unittest.<strong>TestCase</strong>(<em>methodName='runTest'</em>)</a>. <br /> According to <a href="https://docs.python.org/2/library/unittest.html#skipping-tests-and-expected-failures" rel="nofollow">[Python]: Skipping tests and expected failures</a>


Skipped tests will not have setUp() or tearDown() run around them. Skipped classes will <strong>not</strong> have setUpClass() or tearDownClass() run.


Also, according to <a href="https://docs.python.org/2/library/unittest.html#setupclass-and-teardownclass" rel="nofollow">[Python]: setUpClass and tearDownClass</a>:


If you want the setUpClass and tearDownClass on base classes called then <strong>you</strong> must call up to them yourself.


What happens:

<ul><li><em>login.py</em>: LoginPage is instantiated (and run) automatically by the <em>unittest</em> framework (unittest.main()) and setUpClass method is called - which adds the driver attribute to the LoginPage class - and (automatically, to) all its instances</li> <li>

<em>Company_Management.py</em>: LoginPage is instantiated <em>manually</em> by you (em = login.LoginPage()), but the setUpClass method isn't called - and thus LoginPage (or any of its instances) doesn't have the driver attribute - hence your error. <br />To fix it, manually call the method yourself, either:


After instantiating the class (on the instance):

em = login.LoginPage() em.setUpClass() </li> <li>

On the class itself (better, before instantiating it)

login.LoginPage.setUpClass() em = login.LoginPage() </li> </ul></li> </ul>
