Description

The Alert test object corresponds to alerts displayed in web browsers using the JavaScript alert function. You can get the alert text using the Message property and close the alert by simulating a click on its child OK button.

For more information on automating JavaScript alerts, see Handle JavaScript Popups and Browser Dialogs.
