unable to switch to 'current active tab' in chrome using webdriver in java

on Sun Mar 13, 2016 3:41 pm
I am unable to switch to the 'current active tab' in Chrome using WebDriver. I have tried the following:
We can switch to tab, however we do not know which one is the current active tab

I have tried driver.switchTo().activeElement() however it is of no help
I have tried driver.switchTo().Window(""), doesn't work
Tried the following snippet.
Set allWindowHandles = driver.getWindowHandles();  
  for (String windowHandle : allWindowHandles) {
   if (!windowHandle.equals()) {
      driver.switchTo().window(windowHandle);
   }
}
However getting the current active tab handle is the issue.

Normally there will be only one tab and if you click on a click, it may open the new window or it may open in the same browser as new tab.

To switch to new window, you can use driver.switchTo().window().

To switch to new tab, you can can you use send keys with Ctrl + Tab.

driver.findElement(By.xpath("/html/body")).sendKeys(keys.chrod(keys.Ctrl+Keys.TAB));

I have used one of my test case. It worked. You can tried this way.
