Get the last DOM element within a set of DOM elements.

The querying behavior of this command matches exactly how .last() works in jQuery.




Correct Usage

cy.get('nav a').last()     // Yield last link in nav

Incorrect Usage

cy.last()                  // Errors, cannot be chained off 'cy'
cy.getCookies().last()     // Errors, 'getCookies' does not yield DOM element


options (Object)

Pass in an options object to change the default behavior of .last().

Option Default Description
log true Displays the command in the Command log
timeout defaultCommandTimeout Time to wait for .last() to resolve before timing out


  • .last() yields the new DOM element(s) it found.


No Args

Get the last list item in a list

  <li class="one">Knick knack on my thumb</li>
  <li class="two">Knick knack on my shoe</li>
  <li class="three">Knick knack on my knee</li>
  <li class="four">Knick knack on my door</li>
// yields <li class="four">Knick knack on my door</li>



  • .last() requires being chained off a command that yields DOM element(s).


  • .last() will automatically retry until the element(s) exist in the DOM.

  • .last() will automatically retry until assertions you've chained all pass.


  • .last() can time out waiting for the element(s) to exist in the DOM.

  • .last() can time out waiting for assertions you've added to pass.
