Hi Kumar!
Use the BrowserName property from the WebDocument class.

example code:
WebDocument webDocument = "Path/To/the/browser/DOM";
string browserName = webDocument.BrowserName;
Best regards,

Hi Christian,
Thanks for your reply. Is there any other way to identify the browser name without declaring the path in webdocument.

Regards
Kumar

Do you have more than one browser open or just a single browser?

Regardless, you can get an IList of all the forms displayed on the host then iterate the list searching for either the only browser or a browser that happens to have context.

Something like this. Keep in mind this is not tested code but an example I just wrote up here:

Code: Select all

IList<Ranorex.Form> AllForms = Host.Local.FindChildren<Ranorex.Form>();
foreach (Ranorex.Form ThisForm in AllForms )
{
  //here search for the property of the web document to determine if it is the one you want. 
  //If so break out of the loop and use the ThisForm object as your form.
}

If this or any response has helped you, please reply to the thread stating that it worked so other people with a similar issue will know how you fixed your issue!

Sure, for a given web element you can use a RanoreXPath to find its parent/ancestor DOM element and then get the browser name from that element:
WebElement webElement;
WebDocument doc = webElement.FindSingle<WebDocument>("ancestor-or-self::dom");
string browserName = doc.BrowserName;

Hi All,
I was able to check the browser and activate by the following way

webdocument wb = null;
if(wb.pageurl.tostring().contains("Home"))
{
wb.browser.activate();
}
