What is the difference between getText() and getAttribute() in Selenium WebDriver?

Tags: , ,

Both are used to get the WebElement value in between tags.

Is my assumption right? If wrong, please elaborate.


  <input attr1='a' attr2='b' attr3='c'>foo</input>

getAttribute(attr1) you get ‘a’

getAttribute(attr2) you get ‘b’

getAttribute(attr3) you get ‘c’

getText() with no parameter you can only get ‘foo’
