    • Method Detail

      • frame

        WebDriver frame​(int index)
        Select a frame by its (zero-based) index. Selecting a frame by index is equivalent to the JS expression window.frames[index] where "window" is the DOM window represented by the current context. Once the frame has been selected, all subsequent calls on the WebDriver interface are made to that frame.

        See W3C WebDriver specification for more details.

        Parameters:
        index - (zero-based) index
        Returns:
        This driver focused on the given frame
        Throws:
        NoSuchFrameException - If the frame cannot be found
      • frame

        WebDriver frame​(java.lang.String nameOrId)
        Select a frame by its name or ID. Frames located by matching name attributes are always given precedence over those matched by ID.
        Parameters:
        nameOrId - the name of the frame window, the id of the <frame> or <iframe> element, or the (zero-based) index
        Returns:
        This driver focused on the given frame
        Throws:
        NoSuchFrameException - If the frame cannot be found
      • parentFrame

        WebDriver parentFrame()
        Change focus to the parent context. If the current context is the top level browsing context, the context remains unchanged.

        See W3C WebDriver specification for more details.

        Returns:
        This driver focused on the parent frame
      • window

        WebDriver window​(java.lang.String nameOrHandle)
        Switch the focus of future commands for this driver to the window with the given name/handle.

        See W3C WebDriver specification for more details.

        Parameters:
        nameOrHandle - The name of the window or the handle as returned by WebDriver.getWindowHandle()
        Returns:
        This driver focused on the given window
        Throws:
        NoSuchWindowException - If the window cannot be found
      • newWindow

        WebDriver newWindow​(WindowType typeHint)
        Creates a new browser window and switches the focus for future commands of this driver to the new window.

        See W3C WebDriver specification for more details.

        Parameters:
        typeHint - The type of new browser window to be created. The created window is not guaranteed to be of the requested type; if the driver does not support the requested type, a new browser window will be created of whatever type the driver does support.
        Returns:
        This driver focused on the given window
      • defaultContent

        WebDriver defaultContent()
        Selects either the first frame on the page, or the main document when a page contains iframes.

        See W3C WebDriver specification for more details.

        Returns:
        This driver focused on the top window/first frame.
      • activeElement

        WebElement activeElement()
        Switches to the element that currently has focus within the document currently "switched to", or the body element if this cannot be detected. This matches the semantics of calling "document.activeElement" in Javascript.

        See W3C WebDriver specification for more details.

        Returns:
        The WebElement with focus, or the body element if no element with focus can be detected.
      • alert

        Alert alert()
        Switches to the currently active modal dialog for this particular driver instance.
        Returns:
        A handle to the dialog.
        Throws:
        NoAlertPresentException - If the dialog cannot be found
