How do I get the popup text using watir

I need to get the text to verify the correct popup appeared
I also need to verify the button I want to click exist on the popup

Below is the code.

#Click Button
$ie.button($attribute_nm.to_sym,$attribute_val).click_no_wait
dialog = Watir::Dialog.new
puts dialog

Need to be able to poll window to exist

sleep 0.4

if dialog.exists?
?how can I get the dialog text?

if dialog.button(:name,“OK”).exists? ?How can I validate OK exist on
dialog?
dialog.button(‘OK’).click #click OK button
else
dialog.close #close if button doesn’t exist
end
end

Thanks,
DD

I got it to work, so now anyone can use it. If you know how do do it
better, please add to this thread.
