WebdriverIO — Upload file on a hidden input

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hcfNWobjdM

I created a post last week showing you how to upload a file in WebdriverIO.
However, one thing I didn’t cover is how to upload a file when the input element is hidden which is the case in most modern websites.

Let’s take a look at an example of how we can address that. I’m using online2pdf as our test site for this example.

Note: for this test site, the parent div containing the input was hidden so in order to make it interactable I had to make it visible for WebdriverIO by using browser.execute command (see code below).

This code is also available on GitHub for you to access and play around with.
