Displayed text of button to click.

Valid contexts

This action may be used within the following project items: test modules and user-defined actions.

Notes

  • Prior to using this built-in action, it is recommended that you become familiar with the different kinds of modal JavaScript popups and how to handle them properly.
  • Because it is not possible for TestArchitect to interface with JavaScript popups in a conventional manner, this action suppresses the display of the popup to which it is targeted.
    CAUTION: The actual appearance of a popup on your AUT's display during testing will prevent automation from proceeding. If you do indeed see a popup, probable causes are:
    • you specified a button that does not exist, or
    • your sequence of popup-handling action lines (click on next popup and enter text on next popup) did not properly account for the order in which the actual popups were invoked.
  • To handle a sequence of multiple popups, use several popup-handling actions (click on next popup and enter text on next popup) in your test. These actions are stored to a FIFO (First-In, First-Out) queue and each is retrieved from the queue when required for the invocation of a new popup.
  • This action supports the <ignore> modifier. If the string <ignore> is present as the value of the argument, or the argument contains an expression that evaluates to <ignore>, the action is skipped during execution.
