Anchor Area (fail and pass)

To define an Anchor Area

What do you Use it for?
Check for a Healthy Website
Healthy Website means that all elements of the page are correct and on its place. Therefore good anchor areas are
Static images, and
all other static parts of the webpage.
Determine Anchor Areas to perform the next action
Anchor Areas are also used to determine if the next action can be done, especially clicks and keyboard inputs. For clicks, drawing an anchor area is mandatory. This allows us to wait until the page is ready and not still loading. Good anchor areas to perform clicks (swipes, keys) are
Search and input fields
and everything which can take a click.
Note, that you can click outside of anchor areas. They indicate when, not where the click appears.
Do Not Record Areas which Are Changing
If you record an Anchor Area, which is planned to change, the test will break. Examples for changing content are
Text with Date / Time
Number of likes
Product of the day
Do not record areas which contains the above.
