How to get the dialogs owned by a browser?

Post by alex » Thu Nov 10, 2011 11:11 am

I found that the dialogs owned by IE have different processID with IE browser itself(for example: IE8).

So how can I get the IE8 owned dialogs?
If I can't, I can only close browser by killing it.

Hi,
So how can I get the IE8 owned dialogs?
Do you have tried to identify the dialogs with Ranorex Spy, for such reasons you can use Instant Tracking functionality of the Spy tool.
If the Spy have clearly identified it by an unique attribute there shouldn't be any problems during the execution of your tests.
There is also a blog which describes how you can handle pop up windows.
