How to open pop up window table?

There is text label on a webpage, and I am trying to click on that to
open a pop-up window,but not getting opened. here is the HTML code:

  + Search for a Emp

I have to click on the field + Search for a Emp, but could not do
that.

What tool are you using to do the clicking?
Can you share the relevant code you’re running?

Hi Joel,

I am using Selenium with Ruby 1.9.3. But for that Popup window to open,I
am confused what should I write?how to code that, as the level is
totally nested.

Hi,

I just uploaded one screenshot. Please look into that,which might help
you people what exactly I am looking for.

Thanks,

I’m not particularly experienced with Selenium without Watir, but I
should think that you want to click on the link rather than the text.

Something along the lines of:

.link(:href => “#f2”).click

or

.div(:id => “EmpId.outline”).link(:index => 1).fire_event(“onclick”)

Without you showing your nearby code it’ll be difficult to know what
objects you’re dealing with, so I don’t know the naming conventions
you’re using.

Watir-webdriver is Selenium with Watir’s API, I consider it the best of
both worlds. The latest version does support Firefox 17.0.1.

Does “Watir” support Firefox 17.0.1? I was using selenium-webdriver to
automate webpage form filling.

If Watir support Latest version of Firefox I can think about that. But i
think Selenium is much faster than Watir.

Can you suggest me what gem I need to install to work with lates version
of Firefox and proper documentation. Does FireWatir support all kind of
webelement handling like Selenium Webdriver?

Really interested to work with FireWatir if my question’s answers are
yes.

Thanks

This should help you understand a bit more and give you something to get
started with: http://watirwebdriver.com/

I think the graph on this page is a great way of explaining the
relationship between these different browser automation tools :slight_smile:

Since you mentioned Firefox specifically:

Also, if you don’t have Firebug, get it ASAP. It will make your life
much easier when identifying elements.

Ruby can handle .txt files fine just using “File”. I found a few simple
examples here: http://progzoo.net/wiki/Ruby:Read_a_Text_File

I personally use the “win32ole” excel.application object invisibly to
handle xlsx files. I did try “roo” and “spreadsheet” gems, but it’s so
much easier for me to interact directly with excel as I’m already
familiar with all the commands.
There’s a walkthrough here that looks alright:

I’ve never worked with CSVs, but I think there’s a good CSV gem
available or you could use “File” and handle the parsing yourself. This
link looks fairly useful:

Use the built-in CSV class.

The link is out-dated. In Ruby 1.9 the CSV implementation has
been replaced by FasterCSV, so there is no need to require the gem.

Thanks for your continuous help! Would you suggest me any good gem for
File
handling using Ruby,not the “stdlib”. Specially to deal with
“.txt,.xlsx,.csv” files.
