Getting Syntax error while using raise and rescue in a method

Hi All,

I am relatively new to ruby programming, I am trying to capture if any
kind of exception happens in a Click method. so, I am using raise and
rescue in the “Click” method. Looks like I am doing something not
correctly and the script throws this error "syntax error, unexpected
kRESCUE rescue Exception => e at line # 152

        What I am trying to do here is I am checking Id of an object

, if the id doesn’t exist throw an exception, rescue an exception and
display an exception and continue executing the script

            Could please take a look at the script ( Click method)

and help me to resolve this issue?. Advance thanks for your help

Yours,
Sat

If you indent your code, you will see it more clearly:

def Click(ie,id,verifyval)
begin
writeln 'CLICK- ’ + id
if id.exists?
$ie.button(:id, id).click

  if id == 'TriggerFeedAnchor'
    sleep 10
  elsif id == 'onestop'
    sleep 20
  else
    sleep 8
  end
else
  raise Exception  "ID RETURNED #{id}."

rescue Exception => e
puts e.message

puts $!

break

end
end
if $ie.contains_text(verifyval)
puts "Test Passed. Found the string: on the page #{verifyval}. "
else
puts "Test Failed! Could not find the string on the page:
#{verifyval} "
end

end

After the raise, you have to close the if with an end. Rescue comes at
the same scope (same indentation level) as begin. With that fixed, now
you have an extra “end” after "break. You need to remove that:

def Click(ie,id,verifyval)
begin
writeln 'CLICK- ’ + id
if id.exists?
$ie.button(:id, id).click

  if id == 'TriggerFeedAnchor'
    sleep 10
  elsif id == 'onestop'
    sleep 20
  else
    sleep 8
  end
else
  raise Exception  "ID RETURNED #{id}."
end

rescue Exception => e
puts e.message

puts $!

break

end
if $ie.contains_text(verifyval)
puts "Test Passed. Found the string: on the page #{verifyval}. "
else
puts "Test Failed! Could not find the string on the page:
#{verifyval} "
end
end

Hope this helps,

Jesus.

Worked fine, Thanks Jesus
