TestComplete lets you access the HTML DOM document object of web pages. You can use it in your tests to get specific DOM-related data from the web page.

To access a web page’s DOM document object, use the contentDocument property of the Page test object. Similarly, to get the document object of a frame, use the contentDocument property of the Frame test object.

The following example demonstrates how you can use the DOM document.title property to get the web page title:

Keyword test that gets the contentDocument.title property value

JavaScript, JScript

function Test()
  var page = Sys.Browser().Page("");


def Test():
  page = Sys.Browser().Page("");


Sub Test
  Dim page
  Browsers.Item(btIExplorer).Run ""
  Set page = Sys.Browser.Page("")
  Log.Message page.contentDocument.title
End Sub


procedure Test;
var page;
  page := Sys.Browser.Page('');

C++Script, C#Script

function Test()
  var page = Sys["Browser"]()["Page"]("");

For information on the properties and methods of the DOM document object in different browsers, follow these links:


  • The contentDocument property is a native property of web pages in Chrome, Firefox, Edge and Internet Explorer 10 and later.

  • If you use the DOM or Hybrid object model for your web tests, the DOM document object is also available as the Page.document test object. However, working with a native DOM document using the Page.contentDocument property enables you to reuse test snippets across tests that use different web object models.
