Modal Popups

A Modal Popup window is a child window that requires users to interact with it before they can return to operating the parent application. Modal windows often have a different appearance than normal windows and are typically without navigation buttons and menu headings.

 

Modal Popups are detected automatically by Test Studio, like HTML Popups, however a separate Recording Toolbar is not attached.

 

 

Notice the Connect to modal pop-up window and Close modal pop-up window steps. There are additional attributes in the Properties pane under the Modal Popup heading.

  • IsModalPopup - identifies whether the popup window is modal.
  • ModalPopupPartialCaption - locates the desired modal popup based on its partial caption.

 

Note: Test Studio cannot connect to Modal Popups which do not have a title in Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. Ensure all Modal Popups are titled if you are testing in browsers other than Internet Explorer.
