Can you give some insight on what the Test Runner button is that you are referring to? Are you comparing the Selenium TestRunner from RC to Selenium IDE?


This is a side by side comparison of Selenium RC(left) and Selenium IDE(right)


The buttons are almost identical in each, maybe just not in the same position. I don't know of a "Test Runner" button in IDE. Can you elaborate a little more?

Thank you so much for the reply and as well for the screenshot "ccox"..
So both the Selenium Test Runner as well Selenium RC are same right ! (ie)While running the scripts in different browsers(cross browser testing) the selenium test runner will be opened in the browser window through Selenium RC(after connecting to the server).
But what my doubt is whether do we need install test runner privately or will it be opened automatically while running in other browsers!?!
Please do reply friend...

Thanks
Sanjay..

It will run automatically in Selenium RC. It will never run with with Selenium IDE, so nothing should need to be installed. You cannot run RC from IDE. You can run scripts that you have created in IDE and saved outside of IDE from RC(with the command line or a development IDE, such as Eclipse).

Let me know if this answers your question.

Thanks a lot Cameron.. It worked well for me Smile..
By the way i got one more problem too, like i just wanna perform either ok\cancel of a zip file message box that opens from a website while recording it .. The html scripts have not been generated for the same in the selenium ide table window. Do i need to write script for this specific operation of myself.. Pls do get me some idea for this.

Thanks in Advance ..

Recognizing new windows with Selenium seems to always be a challenge. Does it recognize that there is a pop up? If not, I would first use the command waitForPopUp and use the name of the pop up as the target. Then use the selectWindow command with the name of the pop up window as the target.



click
link=Open a pop-up



waitForPopUp
popUpWin
30000


selectWindow
name=popUpWin




You could try this, but I don't know if it will work for sure with this application. If you can get me functional example of this message box, I can play with it and try to get it to work. I haven't been able to find one on the web.

Its not recognizing that there is pop-up and not generating commands in the table which makes me so sad.. But still i'll try with the method u have suggested me and yeah here is the link,

In the above link, Products -> Boxshots

I'm struggling more now as the message box that opens looks different in different browsers and it should be a difficult task as u said. Ll try the level best//

Thank you so much for the help Cameron Smile

The info I gave you was for a pop up window. I searched to see if anyone had a solution to this issue on other forums and found that Selenium cannot interact with certain dialog boxes. This sounds like one of those that it cannot handle.

You could set up scenarios to automate most of it, but pause the script to handle that dialog manually.
