Handling Multiple Browser Windows And Tabs In Selenium PHP

Learn how to use Selenium PHP automation as an alternative to window handling in Selenium when you must work with multiple windows, tabs & pop-ups.

One of the common scenarios in a web application (or a web app) is opening up a new browser window (or tab) once the user performs a specific activity. Many web developers use the HTML tag ‘__blank’ that informs the browser to open a new window (or tab, depending on the user’s set preference) when a link is clicked. Handling Windows in Selenium with PHP can be used for automating interactions with browser windows, tabs, and even pop-up windows.

Pop-up windows can ‘sometimes’ be annoying for the website visitors, but sometimes, you have no other choice than to use the same. How does Selenium differentiate between different windows or tabs? How can automation be used to switch between different browser windows or tabs seamlessly? How do you manage window handling in Selenium?

In this blog, we deep dive into Selenium test automation usage for automating interactions with browsers, tabs, and pop-ups. We use the PHPUnit, the unit-testing framework for PHP, for demonstrating window handling in Selenium PHP.
