I am trying to test an in-place editor using Cucumber/Capybara/Selenium stack, but my problem is that the editor is activated by clicking a div and not a link or button. I can not seem to figure out how to get Capybara to do this. Is there a way of doing this?

You can click on an element via Capybara::Element.click. I add the following for this in my web_steps.rb to click on divs.

When /^(?:|I )click within "([^"]*)"$/ do |selector|

find(selector).click

end

There is also Element.trigger('mouseover') which appears to enable hover albeit not working with Selenium.

It is also very likely you will need to decorate your feature/scenario with Capybara’s provided @javascript tag.
