Add "name" attribute to iframe created by plugin "wysiwygarea"

Component: General Version: 4.0

Over at we had to create a workaround to access the contents of the iframe created by the wysiwygarea plugin using automated tests (with Behat/Mink). Having the name attribute would allow us to simply use switchToIFrame().

Proposed resolution

Add a name attribute to the iframe and use the value of for the attribute.

It isn't a big code change and it it allows improving tests in someone’s environment - it sound like a good idea.

Hi @stBorchert, first thing: thanks for the contirbution!

However it's very easy to access the iframe now, without a name attribute. Just use: document.querySelector( '.cke_editor_' + + ' iframe.cke_wysiwyg_frame' ).

In example, for our SDK example it would be: document.querySelector( '.cke_editor_editor1 iframe.cke_wysiwyg_frame' ) to get the first editor's iframe.

Since the change is redundant I'm closing the ticket. If you have any troubles let us know, so we can help you.

The main problem here is, Mink can access the iframe by its name only so without the name switchToIframe() is rather useless :/

I see - it does sound like a design problem in the Mink itself. Selenium exposes a convenient way to traverse DOM using CSS selectors, so it should not be a problem implement this in Mink - so that others will benefit from your work.

Remember that name is not a required attribute for iframe, so one can not rely it's presence.
