assertAlert, assertConfirmation, assertPrompt
assertAlert (text), assertConfirmation (text), assertPrompt (text)
In the classic Firefox Selenium IDE there are also the corresponding "verify" versions verifyAlert, verifyConfirmation, verifyPrompt. The UI.Vision RPA implementation of the Selenium IDE does not support these three commands - as they are no longer needed. The reason is that while in the Firefox IDE the verifyAlert (etc) commands are useful if a dialog box randomly appears and you just want to close it. UI.Vision RPA for Chrome closes dialog boxes by default, unless you tell it otherwise. The reason for this behavior is that in 99% of all automation cases users just want to close dialog boxes and move on. So there should be no need for the "verify..." versions of this command. But if you need them, let us know.
Why is chooseOkOnNextConfirmation no longer needed?
In the classic Firefox Selenium IDE you needed to add a chooseOkOnNextConfirmation command if you want the IDE to close a dialog automatically. In the UI.Vision RPA implementation of the Selenium IDE this command is not needed, as UI.Vision RPA closes (presses OK) on appearing dialogs automatically. So in other words, chooseOkOnNextConfirmation is built-in, and not needed as separate command. The reason for this behavior is that in 99% of all automation cases users just want to close dialog boxes and move on. The opposite command, chooseCancelOnNextConfirmation, is not yet available in UI.Vision RPA as it seems to be very rarely used (if at all). But if you need it, let us know.
assertAlert, assertConfirmation, assertPrompt Example
The macro below first opens a prompt, and then UI.Vision RPA IDE closes it automatically. The assertPrompt command is completely optional, and only needed if you want to assert that the dialog did appear and had the correct title.
|assertPrompt||Enter some text!||-|
