[QF-Test] How to get QFTest to shift focus to new window?

  • Subject: [QF-Test] How to get QFTest to shift focus to new window?

Hello all:


We’ve received a project request to interact with a web application run by an outside entity.


The first challenge we’ve encountered is how the web app is used. We can log in to the browser just fine, and get to the starting menu.


But each menu item, when selected, opens a brand new window (In Firefox and Internet Explorer it manifests as a new tab) and all interaction from that point happens in this new window.


How do we get QFTest to start the browser, run the login script, then automatically move to the new window and work within that? Treating the new tab like a popup window doesn’t seem to be working.


Can QFTest follow the Windows focus?


Thanks in advance for any advice or experience you can share.
