Changing Selenium Jar to globally handle Modal Dialog box

  • Unpack Selenium jar. (User JRE jar.exe utility)
  • Open selenium-browserbot.js file.
  • Search for function 'IEBrowserBot.prototype.modifyWindowToRecordPopUpDialogs'"
  • Add following codes at the begning of this function


if(win.showModalDialog)
{
if (typeof(win.top.g_selRetVar) == 'undefined')
win.top.g_selRetVar = null;
win.top._UTL_SetSelRetVar = function (val){
win.top.g_selRetVar = val;
win.top.status = win.top.g_selRetVar + ' is returned from child';
};
win.showModalDialog = function( sURL, vArguments, sFeatures)
{
if ((typeof(win.top.g_selRetVar) != 'undefined') && (win.top.g_selRetVar!=null))
{
var temp = win.top.g_selRetVar;
win.top.g_selRetVar = null;
return temp;
}
try {
win.top.open (sURL, 'modal', sFeatures);
} catch(e){ win.showModalDialog(sURL, vArguments, sFeatures); }
};
}
if(win.close)
{
win.attachEvent('onbeforeunload', function _selhandler()
{
if(win.opener && win.opener._UTL_SetSelRetVar)
win.opener._UTL_SetSelRetVar(win.returnValue);
});
}


  • Pack the jar again. (User JRE jar.exe utility)
If you do not wish to change your jar file you can inject the javascript through your script. This has been mentioned in

  2. Hello,
    Could you be more specific "Unpack Selenium jar".
    I can't find file selenium-browserbot.js inside any jar.

    I am using selenium-server-1.0.3 and Java Client Driver.

    Thanks

  3. Hi,

    I still have problem with modal window.
    In my webpage it is possible to turn off modal window for test purposes, but if I run script to show new window (no modal), I am not able to type text and click find button inside this recently opened window(Element //*[@id=\"quick_pt_text\"] not found).

    Is there any possibility to programatically switch to new window, type something inside this window and come back to main window.

    selenium.open("http://devel.lp/main.pl");
    selenium.runScript("open_find(selected_tab)");
    Thread.sleep(5000);
    // now I try to type sth inside opened window
    selenium.typeKeys("//*[@id=\"quick_pt_text\"]", "sth");
    selenium.click("//*[@id=\"find_btn\"]");
    Thread.sleep(5000);

    assertTrue(true);

    PS
    Sorry for previous comment, I have already find selenium-browserbot.js

  4. Hi,

    I add the code above in the selenium-browserbot.js in my selenium-server.jar.

    However my test isn't working. At the beginning of the test, it is like "suspended". I can't open the url I want...

    What's wrong ?

  6. It's already not working.

    I open the jar to see the code and I don't find any added code in the BrowserBot.prototype._modifyWindow method in selenium-browserbot.js file. Is it normal ?

  7. Modification is done in IEBrowserBot.prototype.modifyWindowToRecordPopUpDialogs function.

    Please verify it again this should work.

  9. Hi Amit,

    I am a recent user of selenium and I currently have to automate on IE browser for my current project. I have attached your updated jar to my webdriver project but I am not sure how to use this change to interact with a modal window that is currently blocking me from moving forward. Can you provide me with some coding example of how to use your update, I am using java/groovy with webdriver.

    Thanks in advance
