Re: [QF-Test] File download from firefox
Hello Marek, if you open the browser using the WebDriver connection mode (which is always the case if you like to test with a Firefox browser newer than version 43), the automatic dialog handling is currently not available (due to restrictions of the WebDriver W3C protocol, which has no support for controlling such boxes). In fact, you already named the options we can provide. Some small complementary information: * QF-Test 4.2 comes with the uiauto scripting module, which allows fine control over Windows controls using the UIAutomation API. These would probably offer you more options than the classic autowin. * For the proposed direct http-download, you can use a jython script with the urllib2 module , which provides options for Authentication * The easiest way would be to set the firefox settings to direct download. You can do this using a jython SUT script in your browser startup sequence, after "Start Web-Engine", but before "Open Browser Window": import tempfile folder = tempfile.mkdtemp(".downloads") rc.setGlobal("downloadFolder",folder) rc.engine.preferences().setIntPref("firefox","browser.download.folderList",2) rc.engine.preferences().setBoolPref("firefox","browser.download.useDownloadDir",True) rc.engine.preferences().setStrPref("firefox","browser.download.defaultFolder", folder) rc.engine.preferences().setStrPref("firefox","browser.download.dir", folder) rc.engine.preferences().setBoolPref("firefox","pdfjs.disabled",True) You can also force the download of specific files by listing their mime types: rc.engine.preferences().setStrPref("firefox","browser.helperApps.neverAsk.saveToDisk", "application/x-xxxx, ...") Then you can pick the file from the specified directory (stored in the downloadFolder variable), possibly using a regular expression (due to the timestamp in it).
