Can we capture JavaScript errors in Selenium

0 votes
Is is possible to capture errors occurring in DOM in Selenium and use that to flag an error in the test page?

What I'm saying is, if I try to bind an event on a non-existing HTML control, my browser will throw this error: element xyz not found in the console.

Now when my test fails, I want the same error to be logged or displayed. Is this possible?

This might work. Add the below code to your page sourcecode. Then check for the JSError in Selenium:

<script type="text/javascript">
    window.onerror=function(msg){
        $("body").attr("JSError",msg);
    }
</script>
