javascript – Cypress: Test if element does not exist

Well this seems to work, so it tells me I have some more to learn about .should()

cy.get(.check-box-sub-text).should(not.exist);

you can also search a for a text which is not supposed to exist:

cy.contains([email protected]).should(not.exist)

Here you have the result in Cypress: 0 matched elements

enter

javascript – Cypress: Test if element does not exist

Cypress 6.x+ Migration

Use .should(not.exist) to assert that an element does not exist in the DOM.


Do not use not.visible assertion. It would falsely pass in < 6.0, but properly fail now:

// for element that was removed from the DOM
// assertions below pass in < 6.0, but properly fail in 6.0+
.should(not.be.visible)
.should(not.contain, Text)
