Passing browser (Name/Id/Title) opened by Selenium to Webdriver

on Tue Mar 08, 2011 5:24 pm

I want to use the web-broswer navigation (forward, stop navigation) which are available in Webdriver/Firefox driver but not in seleinum.

Please let me know if this is possible:

1. Open a browser via selenium setup command.
2. Pass this browser to Webdriver (or Firefox/IE driver).
3. Use the navigation commands given by web-driver.

1 and 3 should be simple:

for 2, I want to know how to pass a window's reference from selenium to web-driver.

for forward and backward command use the following commands


for browser title you can store title of each page into variable but there is no command present in selenium or web driver which allow you open URL on the basis of window title.

what you can do is to use the above command and verify the title after going back or forward. if desired page is opened , then perform operation you want to do.

hope this will help you. best of luck.
