Watir problem

Hi,

I’m just starting out with Watir to evaluate it’s use for testing web
application, but I’m stuck with a require problem

given the following script:

require ‘watir’

include Watir

ie = IE.new

ie.goto(“http://localhost:3000/account”)

and given the fact that I installed watir using gems:

gem install watir

Can anyone suggest what I’m doing wrong? The unittests run (with
require ‘watir’), but my tests on a different partition don’t work - No
such file to load – watir (LoadError)

Thanks

require_gem ‘watir’

Perhaps.

require ‘watir’

require_gem ‘watir’

Annoyingly that fails with

undefined method ‘require_gem’

I’m sure problem is between keyboad and chair, but I can’t work out what
I’m doing wrong

You have to require ‘rubygems’ first.

I’ve never been so impressed with a piece of software so quickly in my
life. This is perhaps the most useful piece of software I’ve ever
evaluated (for my current needs).

Perfect fir to what I need

Big thanks to the watir developers, and big thanks to matz for ruby, big
thanks to the ruby community - this will make our testing here so much
more rigorous

Kev

I know exactly what you mean!

Thanks so much! Yes I’m an idiot

Also, if you simply set an environment variable “RUBYOPT” to be
“rubygems”
… things also work ( basically the env variable tells ruby to ALWAYS
require that library ).

I can’t control the security information pop

when i navigate to the login page of my web page it throws a pop up

How can i close that pop up alert???

If you are using watir 1.5 checkout the dialog_test.rb in unit tests
under ruby installation
directory. You will have to find the watir directory, its deep down the
hierarchy.

It has several example to click on dialog which are invoked by
javascript. However same
logic can be used in you script by using click_no_wait method which
invokes the dialog.

Hope this helps.

Hi Suresh, I haven’t heard of folks having that issue before, but the
best way to help troubleshoot your issue is if you forward your code
to the list…and by far the best list to fwd it to is wtr-
[email protected] There are more folks answering watir questions
on the watir list than in comp.lang.ruby. You can join it (and search
the archives) here: http://rubyforge.org/mailman/listinfo/wtr-general

Good luck,
