388. Understanding how close( ) and quit( ) commands work when more than one window is opened






As we've already seen how to open more than one Browser widow using the Selenium Automation code. Now lets find out how the close( ) command works when more than one window is opened.

As per my explanations in our previous posts, close( ) WebDriver command closes only one window which is having focus out of all the remaining windows. All the remaining windows wont be closed by the close( ) WebDriver command.

Lets Implement the Test on Eclipse IDE:

1. Open  WebDriderver - Project33 created in Previous post for opening multiple windows and ensure that the Class33.java file contains the following code as shown below:



2. Now create a method specified with @AfterClass JUnit annotation as shown below:



3. Now write the Selenium Automation code for closing the Browser window using close( ) WebDriver command as shown below:



4. Save and Run the Class33.java file using JUnit Test and observe that the two Browser windows got opened by the Selenium Automation code and the close( ) WebDriver command has closed only one Browser window as shown in the below video:

5. As we've understood after following the above four steps that, close( ) WebDriver command will only close one browser which is in focus even though our automation code has launched  more than one Browser windows. To avoid this problem, we have to use quit( ) WebDriver command instead of close( ) WebDriver command. Lets implement this by following the next steps.

6. In the Selenium Automation code, Replace close( ) with quit( ) WebDriver command as shown below:


4. Save and Run the Class33.java file using JUnit Test and observe that the two Browser windows got opened by the Selenium Automation code and the quit( ) WebDriver command has closed both the Browser windows as shown in the below video:
