How to access chrome child window

Post by mnaeem » Sat Oct 23, 2021 4:28 pm

Hello,
I am trying to access a child window, kindly see this picture https://1drv.ms/u/s!AoNHROZr6p0PkGLaWzg ... F?e=PzV0Z5

Actually there are 2 buttons which are hidden in previously shown picture. They are visible in this picture https://1drv.ms/u/s!AoNHROZr6p0PkGMcfP2 ... e?e=tAfjQ5 I need to click the I Agree button shown in the later picture. To access the I Agree button I am trying this below xpath.

Code: Select all

ChromeFindElements>session_id,xpath,//*[contains(text(),'I Agree' )]//parent::tp-yt-paper-button//parent::a,elements
For your further reference I am also providing the html picture https://1drv.ms/u/s!AoNHROZr6p0PkGQyS_S ... N?e=SdxAMg for better understanding.

Appreciate your guidance.

Thanks

Those ones can be quite fiddly. You have to switch context, interact, then switch it back again. You can see the original explanation here.

This does what you require :

Code: Select all

let>TheURL=https://www.youtube.com/
Let>CHROMEDRIVER_EXE=c:\chromedriver.exe

ChromeStart>session_id
put>session_id
ChromeNavigate>session_id,url,%TheURL%

//Get current Windows
GoSub>GetWindowHandles,session_id

//Wait to ensure window has popped up (may need to increase this)
wait>1

//Get a list of windows
GoSub>GetWindowHandles,session_id
JSONParse>theResult,$.value[1],newHandle
JSONParse>theResult,$.value[0],mainHandle

//Now switch browsing context
GoSub>SwitchWindow,session_id,newHandle_1

//Click the button
ChromeFindElements>session_id,xpath,//yt-formatted-string[@class='style-scope ytd-button-renderer style-primary size-default'],el
ChromeElementAction>session_id,el_2,click

//Switch back to main window
GoSub>SwitchWindow,session_id,mainHandle_1

//
//continue script
//

//Subroutines
SRT>GetWindowHandles
  HTTPRequest>http://localhost:9515/session/%GetWindowHandles_Var_1%/window/handles,,GET,,theResult
END>GetWindowHandles

//takes session ID and window name to switch browsing context to
SRT>SwitchWindow
  Let>HTTP_POSTJSON=1
  Let>body= { "name": "%SwitchWindow_Var_2%" }
  //if you are not using the standard port and have changed it with CHROMEDRIVER_PORT then change the port number here accordingly
  HTTPRequest>http://localhost:9515/session/%SwitchWindow_Var_1%/window,,POST,body,theResult
END>SwitchWindow
