Question: How to Switch to another window in Selenium?
Answer: The following is the answer for this question:
The following predefined methods of Selenium can be used for handling the multiple windows in an application:
- getWindowHandle() – for retrieving the window ids of multiple opened windows
- getWindowHandles() – for retrieving the window id of the currently focused window.
- switchTo() – helps us in switching
- window() – used along with switchTo() and intakes window id as input
Example program: The following program will capture all the opened windows, switch to child window and close it and later switch to the main window and then close it.
//Store all the currently opened windows in a Set Collection
Set<String> set = driver.getWindowHandles();
Iterator<String> itr = set.iterator();
//Store the window ID of the main window
String mainWindow = itr.next();
//Store the window ID of the child window
String childWindow = itr.next();
//Switch to child window
//Close the child window
//Switch to main window
//Close the main window
