How to close browser popup in Selenium WebDriver

0 votes
I am automating a web App using selenium web driver and when I want to close the browser I get a popup asking "Are you sure? The page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave - data entered will be lost." It has two buttons: Leave Page and Stay on Page

How to click on this popup button?

You can do this using the below code: 

( ( JavascriptExecutor ) _driver).executeScript( "window.onbeforeunload = function(e){};" );

Hey! I tried this. It doesn't work. When I run this, the whole browser is getting closed. I just want to handle the pop-up. Any other solution?

Hey Vasuki, you can simply handle the pop-up by using following code snippet: 

// Accepts (Click on OK) on Alert Pop-up window

Alert alertOK = driver.switchTo().alert();

//Rejects (Click on Cancel) on Alert pop-up window.

Alert alertCancel = driver.switchTo().alert();

Tried with below snippet of code, it is failing. Can you please help me ?


    public void display() throws InterruptedException, AWTException {

        ( ( JavascriptExecutor )driver )

        .executeScript( "window.onbeforeunload = function(e){};" );


Alert alertCancel = driver.switchTo().alert();





@Mahesh, is it throwing any error or simply not executing the code? Also, why are you using javascript executor?
