ByPlaceholderText

getByPlaceholderText, queryByPlaceholderText, getAllByPlaceholderText, queryAllByPlaceholderText, findByPlaceholderText, findAllByPlaceholderText

API

getByPlaceholderText(
// If you're using `screen`, then skip the container argument:
container: HTMLElement,
text: TextMatch,
options?: {
exact?: boolean = true,
normalizer?: NormalizerFn,
}): HTMLElement

This will search for all elements with a placeholder attribute and find one that matches the given TextMatch.

<input placeholder="Username" />
import {screen} from '@testing-library/dom'
const inputNode = screen.getByPlaceholderText('Username')

Note

A placeholder is not a good substitute for a label so you should generally use getByLabelText instead.

Options

TextMatch options
