Using Selenium at the same I use the browser

Post by helara on Sat Feb 25, 2012 9:16 am

Hi guys, I'm pretty new with Selenium but I have encounter with this problem on my first test. I need to use Selenium to navigate and interacts with a website, but I need to able to use the browser at the same time, meaning, open another tabs and working on them.

I have used Watin before, and this worked like a charm. I would have the testing running on one tab and I would continue to work on others tabs without problem. At a glance, it seems to me that Selenium can only work with the "active" tab, and so if I open a new tab, this will be become the active and of course, the tests will run on this new tab.

Any help will be highly appreciated. I was considering moving from Watin to Selenium, but this is a major problem for me.

Thanks a lot.

do you actually need to use a new tab? if you open a new browser instance you can interact with that whilst selenium executes against the other.
