Description

A BrowserWindow test object represents an opened browser window. Browser has at least one BrowserWindow object; additional windows can be opened using the browser’s New Window or Open Link In New Window command.

Note that BrowserWindow is not the same as Page. A Page object represents a web page in a browser tab whereas a BrowserWindow object corresponds to the browser window with menus, toolbars and so on.

BrowserWindow and Page objects

The BrowserWindow object provides methods and properties for automating various browser window operations, such as:

Operations recorded directly against the BrowserWindow are cross-browser. However, browser menus, toolbars and tab GUI objects are different in different browsers, so operations against them are not cross browser. If you need to include such operations in your test, you should run them conditionally depending on the current browser (see Checking the Current Browser).

Requirements

  • A license for TestComplete Web module.

  • The Web Testing plugin. This plugin is installed and enabled automatically. The plugin implements the BrowserWindow test object, as well as the web testing functionality.

Example

The following example runs a browser and maximizes its window on the screen:

JavaScript, JScript

function Maximizing()
{
  Browsers.Item("iexplore").Run("http://smartbear.com");
  Sys.Browser().BrowserWindow(0).Maximize();
}

Python

def Maximizing():
  Browsers.Item["iexplore"].Run("http://smartbear.com")
  Sys.Browser().BrowserWindow(0).Maximize()

VBScript

Sub Maximizing
  Browsers.Item("iexplore").Run("http://smartbear.com")
  Sys.Browser().BrowserWindow(0).Maximize
End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure Maximizing;
begin
  Browsers.Item('iexplore').Run('http://smartbear.com');
  Sys.Browser().BrowserWindow(0).Maximize();
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function Maximizing()
{
  Browsers["Item"]("iexplore")["Run"]("http://smartbear.com");
  Sys["Browser"]()["BrowserWindow"](0)["Maximize"]();
}

The following example calculates the number of windows opened in a browser:

JavaScript, JScript

function Test()
{
  var browser = "iexplore";

  Browsers.Item(browser).Run("http://smartbear.com");
  Sys.Browser().BrowserWindow(0).Keys("^n"); // Open a new browser window using the Ctrl+N shortcut
  Browsers.Item(browser).Navigate("http://www.google.com");

  var windows = Sys.Browser().FindAllChildren("ObjectType", "BrowserWindow").toArray();
  Log.Message("Number of opened browser windows: " + windows.length);
}

Python

def Test():
  browser = "iexplore"

  Browsers.Item[browser].Run("http://smartbear.com")
  Sys.Browser().BrowserWindow(0).Keys("^n"); # Open a new browser window using the Ctrl+N shortcut
  Browsers.Item[browser].Navigate("http://www.google.com")

  windows = Sys.Browser(browser).FindAllChildren("ObjectType", "BrowserWindow")
  Log.Message("Number of opened browser windows: " + str(len(windows)))

VBScript

Sub Test
  Dim browser, windows
  browser = "chrome"

  Call Browsers.Item(browser).Run("http://smartbear.com")

  Call Sys.Browser().BrowserWindow(0).Keys("^n") ' Open a new browser window using the Ctrl+N shortcut
  Call Browsers.Item(browser).Navigate("http://www.google.com")

  windows = Sys.Browser().FindAllChildren("ObjectType", "BrowserWindow")
  Call Log.Message("Number of opened browser windows: " & (UBound(windows) + 1))
End Sub

DelphiScript

procedure Test;
var browser, windows;
begin
  browser := 'chrome';

  Browsers.Item(browser).Run('http://smartbear.com');
  Sys.Browser().BrowserWindow(0).Keys('^n'); // Open a new browser window using the Ctrl+N shortcut
  Browsers.Item(browser).Navigate('http://www.google.com');

  windows := Sys.Browser().FindAllChildren('ObjectType', 'BrowserWindow');
  Log.Message('Number of opened browser windows: ' + VarToStr(VarArrayHighBound(windows, 1)));
end;

C++Script, C#Script

function Test()
{
  var browser = "iexplore";

  Browsers["Item"](browser)["Run"]("http://smartbear.com");
  Sys["Browser"]()["BrowserWindow"](0)["Keys"]("^n"); // Open a new browser window using the Ctrl+N shortcut
  Browsers["Item"](browser)["Navigate"]("http://www.google.com");

  var windows = Sys["Browser"]()["FindAllChildren"]("ObjectType", "BrowserWindow")["toArray"]();
  Log["Message"]("Number of opened browser windows: " + windows["length"]);
}
