I am using Web automation package and I have multiple window . When I use select Window after the get windows action. I do for example Select Window WindowHandle[1] and It doesn’t select the same window for some execution. 


The issue is with the Web Automation  package. Fo exaample you can do Select Window Handle[1] it select window A .you execute again the same code it selects window B.


How I can be sure of which window handle correspond to this window?

Hi @LnMamou,

I think you should use “Activate” Command from Window package. For sure it will work. After that you can use the other subsequent actions.


Hope this helps!

Use the same windows variable in Activate command and the Recorder command.

Loop over window handles :

  switch to current handle

  get URL/ Title of the current handle

  if URL/ Title of the current handle == desired URL/ Title

Hello @Sumit.K11 ,

Yes  I did like this yesterday. I repeat the loop every time I need to select a window around 6 times. 

I hope that there will be an upgrade on this package in the feature
