Taking Screenshots are a great way to go over what went wrong in your automation test. In this tutorial we will go over on how you can store the screenshots of where your test failed or of any desired screen during  running of your dusk tests.

Laravel Dusk by default makes it easy for us , by storing the screenshot of the screen where the test failed in the following directory test > Browser > screenshots

The screenshots folder content is deleted everytime your run the command php artisan dusk

Thus, if you have failed test , before running your tests again,  you should checkout the screenshot folder if you are looking for evidence.

You can make use of screenshot method on the browser object.

For example if you want to take the screenshot of your application home page in the provided ExampleTest.php , modify it like this

 namespace Tests\Browser; use Tests\DuskTestCase; use LaravelJersey Jersey Jersey Ryan Ryan Suter Ryan Suter Ryan \Dusk\BrowserChicago Shirt Bears Jersey Jersey Chicago Shirt Bears Chicago Chicago Shirt Jersey BearsJersey Jersey Jersey Ryan Ryan Suter Ryan Suter Ryan ; use Illuminate\Foundation\Testing\DatabaseMigrations; class ExampleTest extends DuskTestCase { /** * A basic browser test example. * * @return void */ public function testBasicExample() { $this->browse(function (Mens Dallas Dallas Cowboy Mens Cowboy Jersey Mens JerseyBrowser $browser) { $browser->visit('/') ->screenshot('home-page') -Jersey Jersey Jersey Ryan Ryan Suter Ryan Suter Ryan >assertSee('Laravel'); }); } }

screenshot method requires a parameter which is the name of the file that you want to save it as.

Once you run the test, you should see a new file created in your directory Browser > Screenshots with name home-page.png
