Get properties on the current subject

`cy.its` gets regular properties on the current subject. If you want to call a function on the current subject, use [`cy.invoke`](https://on.cypress.io/api/invoke). | | | |--- | --- | | **Returns** | the value of the property | | **Timeout** | `cy.its` cannot timeout unless you've added assertions. The assertions will retry for the duration of [`defaultCommandTimeout`](https://on.cypress.io/guides/configuration#section-timeouts) | *** # [cy.its( *propertyName* )](#section-usage) Gets the property with the specified name. You can also access multiple nested properties with **dot notation**. *** # Usage ## Access properties [block:code] { "codes": [ { "code": "cy.wrap({foo: \"bar\"}).its(\"foo\").should(\"eq\", \"bar\") // true\n", "language": "javascript" } ] } [/block] Call the `length` property on the current subject [block:code] { "codes": [ { "code": "cy\n .get(\"ul li\") // this returns us the jquery object\n .its(\"length\") // calls the 'length' property returning that value\n .should(\"be.gt\", 2) // ensure this length is greater than 2\n})\n", "language": "javascript" } ] } [/block] *** ## Access functions You can access functions to then drill into their own properties instead of invoking them. [block:code] { "codes": [ { "code": "// Your app code\n\n// a basic Factory constructor\nvar Factory = function(arg){\n ...\n}\n\nFactory.create = function(arg){\n return new Factory(arg)\n}\n\n// assign it to the window\nwindow.Factory = Factory\n", "language": "javascript" } ] } [/block] [block:code] { "codes": [ { "code": "cy\n .window() // get the window object\n .its(\"Factory\") // now we are on the Factory function\n .invoke(\"create\", \"arg\") // and now we can invoke properties on it\n\n", "language": "javascript" } ] } [/block] *** ## Drill into nested properties You can additionally automatically drill into nested properties by using **dot notation**. [block:code] { "codes": [ { "code": "var obj = {\n foo: {\n bar: {\n baz: \"quux\"\n }\n }\n}\n\ncy.wrap(obj).its(\"foo.bar.baz\").should(\"eq\", \"quux\") // true\n", "language": "javascript" } ] } [/block] *** # Command Log ## Fetch 'comments' fixture [block:code] { "codes": [ { "code": "cy\n .server()\n .route(/comments/, 'fixture:comments.json').as('getComments')\n .get('#fetch-comments').click()\n .wait('@getComments')\n .its('responseBody')\n .should('deep.eq', [\n {id: 1, comment: 'hi'},\n {id: 2, comment: 'there'}\n ])\n", "language": "javascript" } ] } [/block] The commands above will display in the command log as: ![screen shot 2016-05-24 at 12 39 40 pm](https://cloud.githubusercontent.com/assets/1268976/15512229/d512cbb4-21ac-11e6-9a9a-5d358ae4fe4b.png) When clicking on `its` within the command log, the console outputs the following: ![screen shot 2016-05-24 at 12 40 17 pm](https://cloud.githubusercontent.com/assets/1268976/15512225/d14723cc-21ac-11e6-88d5-39ffe6c0a195.png) *** # Related - [invoke](https://on.cypress.io/api/invoke) - [wrap](https://on.cypress.io/api/wrap) - [then](https://on.cypress.io/api/then)
