Handling java script popups(onclick)

hello every one,
I have a problem while “handling popups”.
It is like
1)In my application after a button click a popup is expected and then I
have to handle that popup.
2)I have written popup handler in seperate thread(using autoit).
3)But when I issue a button click my script is hanging at that point and
its not allowing any other thread to execute .
*) I also used click_no_wait but I found it’s not even clicking the
button its going for the next statement

I am using

ruby version

ruby 1.8.7 (2010-06-23 patchlevel 299) [i386-mingw32]

gem version

1.3.7

I also tried it in ruby version
ruby 1.8.6 (2007-09-24 patchlevel 111) [i386-mswin32]
Please give some solution .
I think I am missing some thing or there may be problem with ruby
versions.
I am stucked here ,please help me.

Do you start this thread before issuing the click?

Anyway my first hunch is to use jruby since it has “real” threads (or
maybe 1.9.x…).
-r

The best thing I have found is to start a popup handler script in a sub
process.

popupHandler =
Kernel.open("|"#{RbConfig::CONFIG[“bindir”]}/#{RbConfig::CONFIG[“ruby_install_name”]}.exe"
“PopupHandler.rb” #{$$} “#{@@browserType}” “#{@@baseUrlAddress}”
“#{@@ieVersion}” “#{@@ffVersion}”", “wb”)

the file attached is the popup handler script. (also uses autoit)

I Use this with watir/firewatir

Hi Roger,
Yes I have started popup handler thread before “click”.I have seen that
popup handler handling other normal popups(other than on-click popups).I
think it’s not thread problem.
hanging after button click is expected but I have to use click_no_wait
to make it work so that it doesn’t hang.But click_no_wait is not
working.
I am attaching my code please find it.

Hi Kevin,
I have been using popup handler in a thread( which is almost equal
starting in separate process).Please find my code in the attachment.
