hover(selector[, options])


Use locator-based locator.hover([options]) instead.

This method hovers over an element matching selector.

selectorstring''A selector to search for an element. If there are multiple elements satisfying the selector, the first will be used.
options.forcebooleanfalseSetting this to true will bypass the actionability checks (visible, stable, enabled).
options.modifiersstring[]nullAlt, Control, Meta or Shift modifiers keys pressed during the action. If not specified, currently pressed modifiers are used.
options.noWaitAfterbooleanfalseIf set to true and a navigation occurs from performing this action, it will not wait for it to complete.
options.positionobjectnullA point to use relative to the top left corner of the element. If not supplied, a visible point of the element is used.
options.position.xnumber0The x coordinate.
options.position.ynumber0The y coordinate.
options.strictbooleanfalseWhen true, the call requires selector to resolve to a single element. If given selector resolves to more than one element, the call throws an exception.
options.timeoutnumber30000Maximum time in milliseconds. Pass 0 to disable the timeout. Default is overridden by the setDefaultTimeout option on BrowserContext or Page.
options.trialbooleanfalseSetting this to true will perform the actionability checks without performing the action.


Promise<void>A Promise that fulfills when the hover action is finished.
