Store function output to string?

I am looking for a way to store a function’s output to a string.
Believe it or not, I’ve had some trouble finding this using google.

I have a function for web testing (WET) that displays the text in an IE
pop-up:

$ie.Dialog(“title:Window Title”).text()

This successfully prints the text of the pop-up in IRB. However, in
order to validate this text, I want to capture it to a string, and then
use a series of other strings to check it out.

How would I go about doing this?

Thanks.

irb(main):011:0> ie.Dialog.text()
=> “There are problems with some of the form values:\n\n - email
address is mi
ssing.\n - your first and last names are required.\n - you must
enter a comp
any name.\n - you must enter a property name.\n - phone number is
required.
n”

Since it’s returning a string in irb is it safe to assume

my_string = ie.Dialog.text()
?

Nevermind, got it.

alert = $ie.Dialog(“title:Window”).text().to_s

So that’s how it works to store the output of a command rather than the
command itself.
