Save dialog not able to Interact - Selenium Webdriver with Java

Recommended Posts


before, i'm new for this AutoIT, i'm not familiar with this, just google and need to complete my task, if any mistake of my AtotoIt please correct it

scope: during the Xml Download from IE(version 9) it will open the "Do you want to open or save dialog" so i want to click the save button to save that xml file in default temp folder


my autoIT code(reference from http://qtp-help.blogspot.in/2009/07/selenium-handle-dialogs.html#handle_save_dialog)

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode","2") ; set the select mode to select using substring

if $CmdLine[0] < 2 then
; Arguments are not enough
msgbox(0,"Error","Supply all the arguments, Dialog title,Run/Save/Cancel and Path to save(optional)")

; wait Until dialog box appears
WinWait($CmdLine[1]) ; match the window with substring
$title = WinGetTitle($CmdLine[1]) ; retrives whole window title

If (StringCompare($CmdLine[2],"Open",0) = 0) Then

If (StringCompare($CmdLine[2],"Save",0) = 0) Then
; Wait for the new dialogbox to open

If (StringCompare($CmdLine[2],"Cancel",0) = 0) Then

 and my java code

WebElement downloadLink = driver.findElement(By
        dialog = new String[] {
                "C:\\Users\\Prabakar\\Desktop\\Save_Dialog_IE.exe", "Save" };

but its not executed properly, please sort out this

thanks prabu

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

But please pay attention to where you post - the "Examples" section where you started this thread is clearly marked: "This is NOT a general support forum!". I have moved the thread for you, but would ask you to be more careful in future. ;)


Edit: And please do not double post - I have deleted the other thread. :naughty:
