WebDriverIO – isClickable

isClickable Command Returns true under the following criteria where the selected DOM-element:-

  1. Exists
  2. Is Visible
  3. Is within View Port
  4. its center is not overlapped with another element
  5. is not disabled

If it doesn’t match the above criteria then isClickable returns false.

Note:- isClickable works only in web and webviews, it doesn’t work in the mobile app native context.
