ChromeSwitchFrame

ChromeSwitchFrame>session_id,method,reference,result

 

Switches the browsing context of a session created by ChromeStart to the specified frame or iframe.


method can be one of

  • index
  • element
  • empty string or null

If method is index, reference should be a number representing the index of the frame, where zero is the first frame. 


If method is element, reference should be an element ID returned by ChromeFindElements.


If successul result will be zero and the browsing context will change to the selected frame. Subsequent Chrome functions will act upon that frame.  


To return the context to the parent window leave method empty or use index with reference set to null.
