Selenium : How to handle a window which automatically closes and back to parent window & Opens window PopUp

  • I have a test case with following scenario:

    1. Click on global Order Mgmt Super user
    2. Click on Sales Order link
    3. Which Actually Opens new Window & Closes automatically
    4. Focus came back to Parent window & Open up a window popup
    5. Click on Ok button

    Code :

    // Click on Global Order MGMT Superuser role & Sales Order
    driver.findElement(By.xpath("//a[contains(text(),'Global Order Management Super User')]")).click();
            Set <String> handles =driver.getWindowHandles();
            Iterator<String> it = handles.iterator();
            String parent =;
            String child =;
            Alert alert = driver.switchTo().alert();

  • May this help you:-

        driver.findElement(By.xpath("//a[contains(text(),'Global Order Management Super User')]")).click();
        // It will return the parent window name as a String
         String mainWindow=driver.getWindowHandle();
         // It returns no. of windows opened by WebDriver and will return Set of Strings
         Set<String> set =driver.getWindowHandles();
         // Using Iterator to iterate with in windows
         Iterator<String> itr= set.iterator();
         // Compare whether the main windows is not equal to child window. If not equal, we will close.
         // If you just want to print or match the title of new opened window.
         // This is to switch to the main window
         // Wait for 10 seconds to find the Alert on parent window.
         WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, 10);

    I have just write this on the basis of your test steps.
