How to get Response URL value - help requested

Hi,
I have a problem here.
I have a ruby code that opens Google, types “book stores” and clicks on
“Search” button.

Code Snippet Begins here

require ‘net/http’
require ‘uri’
require ‘watir’

term=“book stores”

url1 = ‘http://www.google.com
ie = Watir::IE.start(url1)
ie.text_field(:name, “q”).set(term)
ie.button(:name, “btnG”).click

Code Snippet Ends here

Now I need to obtain the value of the response URL generated by this
search and assign it to a variable.
[ i.e. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=book+stores]

How do I read the HTTP Header information for the “location” attribute?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Madu

Any help appreciated… Please let know.

Thanks again,
Madu

I have no experience with Watir whatsoever, but the docs show there’s
a url() method.

http://wtr.rubyforge.org/rdoc/classes/Watir/IE.html#M000293

Did you check it out?

Thanks Andrei,
Did try the url() function from Watir but that did not work and gave me
the following exceptions…

This information is not available in Watir. You could use a http proxy
to get this information.

You can try SWExplorerAutomation SWEA (http://webunittesting.com).

Example:

require ‘rubyclr’
RubyClr::reference ‘System’
RubyClr::reference ‘SWExplorerAutomationClient’
include SWExplorerAutomation::Client
include SWExplorerAutomation::Client::Controls
include SWExplorerAutomation::Client::DialogControls
explorerManager = ExplorerManager.new
explorerManager.Connect(-1)
explorerManager.LoadProject(‘google.htp’)
explorerManager.Navigate(‘http://www.google.com/’)
scene = explorerManager[‘Scene_0’]
scene.WaitForActive(30000)
scene[“q”].Value = ‘c#’
scene[‘btnG’].Click()
scene = explorerManager[‘Scene_1’]
scene.WaitForActive(30000)
puts scene.RuntimeSceneInfo.Url
explorerManager.DisconnectAndClose()

Result:
D:\Temp>test.rb
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=c%23&btnG=Google+Search
