Hi,

I have recorded one scenario by using slenium IDE, it is working fine while executing the same scenario by using selenium IDE. But while executing the testcases as Junit4(webdriver) and Junit4(Backed selenium) its getting failed to get the frames. Can anyone suggest to solve the problem.

TC which is exported as BackedSelenium:

@Test
public void testManagerSelenium() throws Exception {
selenium.open("http://10.4.177.248:9866/prweb/PRServlet");
selenium.type("id=txtUserID", "manager@virtusa.com");
selenium.type("id=txtPassword", "rules");
selenium.click("name=pyActivity=Code-Security.Login");
selenium.waitForPageToLoad("30000");
selenium.click("css=#Tab2 > #ACCORANCHOR > #TABSPAN > #RULE_KEY > tbody > tr > td.accord_titleBarBackground");
selenium.selectFrame("PWGadget0Ifr");
selenium.click("//table[@id='ViewTable']/tbody/tr[7]/td[3]");
selenium.waitForPageToLoad("10000");
//--Unable to find this below frames
selenium.selectFrame("relative=up");
selenium.selectFrame("PWGadget1Ifr");


selenium.select("id=ManagerApprovalLatest", "label=Approve");
selenium.type("id=ManagerComments", "enter value for the reason");
selenium.click("id=submitButton");
selenium.waitForPageToLoad("30000");
}


TC which is exportedAs Junit4(Webdirver):

@Test
public void testManagerDriver() throws Exception {
driver.get(baseUrl + "/prweb/PRServlet/oO9O9iMscyJc_fy6LnBDXO9xEtRpDxfL3At36r8Aw8k%5B*/!STANDARD?");
driver.findElement(By.id("txtUserID")).clear();
driver.findElement(By.id("txtUserID")).sendKeys("manager");
driver.findElement(By.id("txtPassword")).clear();
driver.findElement(By.id("txtPassword")).sendKeys("rules");
driver.findElement(By.name("pyActivity=Code-Security.Login")).click();
driver.findElement(By.cssSelector("#Tab2 > #ACCORANCHOR > #TABSPAN > #RULE_KEY > tbody > tr > td.accord_titleBarBackground")).click();
//----Unable to find the below Frame
// ERROR: Caught exception [ERROR: Unsupported command [selectFrame]]
driver.findElement(By.xpath("//table[@id='ViewTable']/tbody/tr[9]/td[3]")).click();
//----Unable to find the below Frames
// ERROR: Caught exception [ERROR: Unsupported command [selectFrame]]
// ERROR: Caught exception [ERROR: Unsupported command [selectFrame]]

new Select(driver.findElement(By.id("ManagerApprovalLatest"))).selectByVisibleText("Approve");
driver.findElement(By.id("ManagerComments")).clear();
driver.findElement(By.id("ManagerComments")).sendKeys("enter value for the reason");
driver.findElement(By.id("submitButton")).click();
}



Thanks & Regards,

I have not run into this exact issue but I have run into a certain amount of "flakiness" with regards to Selenium and frames. There is a similar thread on the Selenium Issues List which details some of my issue.

I have not found the selenium IDE to be a reliable tool when it comes to frames and such. It could be as much an issue with how the html source is coded to allow for "uniqueness" in element names as it could be with the Selenium tool.

The solution for my problem was to get the elements in the root window matching my Xpath/By clause as well as to pull out all of the frames (getElements(webdriver, By.xpath("//iframe"))) and search through each of them for elements matching the Xpath/By clause. When an element is found, then the click method is executed. Depending on the complexity of the pages you are using, you may also need to consider retrieving frames within frames, etc.
