I'm using Selenium2 for some automated tests of my website, and I'd like to be able to get the return value of some JavaScript code. If I have a foobar() Javascript function in my webpage and I want to call that and get the return value into my Python code, what can I call to do that?

You can return values even if you don't have your snippet code written as a function like in the below example code, by just adding return var;  at the end will work, where var is the variable you want to return.

result = driver.execute_script('''cells = document.querySelectorAll('a');

URLs = []


[], function (el) {

    if(el.text.indexOf("download") !== -1){



    //, '_blank');




return URLs''')

 The result will contain the array that is URLs in this case. 

Hope this helps!
