Browser window trouble

Aug 24, 2012 at 8:47 AM

Hi All,

I'm hoping you can help. I am currently writing some CodedUI tests using CUITe. I have an issue defining a browser window. 

At stage 1 of the the website process you are asked for a title of you project, for this i use a guid. This current page = 

public new string sWindowTitle = "PleaseReview™";

when i get to 5 page of project creation the unique title added at stage 1 is incorparted into the browser title. e.g. = public new string sWindowTitle = "[project title] PleaseReview™"; My question; in order to interact with this page i need a broswer title, this is causing me an issue as i have had to used a guid. How do i get the browser title and then point that at the relevent page in the object repository in order to interact with the page.

Hi Ashley,

Support for this feature has been implemented in changeset #19710.

There are some unit tests that illustrate the functionality in Sample_CUITeTestProject\BrowserWindowTests.cs, specifically Launch_GetWindowTitle_Succeeds, GetBrowserWindow_WithDynamicWindowTitle_CanGetNewWindowTitle, and GetBrowserWindow_WithDynamicWindowTitle_CanInteractWithWindow.

To get the current window title of a browser, get the value of the Title property of the CUITe_BrowserWindow.

The CUITe_DynamicBrowserWindow class can also be used to support interacting with web pages that contain dynamic window titles.

The class can be inherited and a title passed in GetBrowserWindow<T>() as follows:


ReviewPage reviewPage = CUITe_DynamicBrowserWindow.GetBrowserWindow<ReviewPage>("[project title] PleaseReview™");

Thank you.

You can also call the SetWindowTitle(string title) method to set the window title of the browser used when searching for controls.

Sorry this is all quite new to me.

Thanks again,
