dispatchEvent(selector, type, eventInit[, options])


Use locator-based locator.dispatchEvent(type, eventInit[, options]) instead.

Dispatches HTML DOM event types e.g. 'click'.

selectorstring''A selector to search for an element. If there are multiple elements satisfying the selector, the first will be used.
typestring''DOM event type e.g. 'click'.
eventInitobjectnullOptional event specific properties. See eventInit for more details.
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.


Since eventInit is event-specific, please refer to the events documentation for the lists of initial properties:


import { browser } from 'k6/experimental/browser';

export const options = {
  scenarios: {
    browser: {
      executor: 'shared-iterations',
      options: {
        browser: {
          type: 'chromium',

export default async function () {
  const page = browser.newPage();

  await page.goto('');
  page.dispatchEvent('#counter-button', 'click');
