How to switch between two windows in browser using Selenium java

0 votes
I'm working with Selenium Automation. In this, When I click a link in a current window, a new window opens. I just want to switch the control to the new window. But I can't do this.

Actually, the new window is an auto-generated one. That is, a link will be generated dynamically.

kindly help!

Yes, this is possible. First, you need to save the reference to the current window.

String parentWindow= driver.getWindowHandle();

The after having clicked the link, you need to switch to the other window.

List<String> allWindows = driver.getWindowHandles();
for(String curWindow : allWindows){
    driver.switchTo().window(curWindow);
}

This is where you perform operations on the new window, finally closing it with

driver.close();

and switch back to the parent window

driver.switchTo().window(parentWindow);
