Get Browser Details

A Get Browser Details building block is used to get information about an open browser window: The page title, web address (URL) and HTML source.

Please note that this block only works with browser windows that were previously opened using the Start Web Browser block or their “child” windows.

Fully expanded, the Get Browser Details block shows the following properties:

Get browser details

The Block Header (“Get Browser Details”)

The green input connector in the header is used to trigger the block to start executing.

The green output connector in the header triggers when the browser details have been retrieved from the open browser window.

The title of the block (“Get Browser Details”) can be changed by double-clicking on it and typing in a new title.

Page title

This property contains the page title of the open browser window.

Page URL

This property contains the web address (URL) of the open browser window.

Page HTML source

This property contains the entire HTML source of the page in the open browser window.

Browser window

By setting this property, the building block will use a specific browser window.

Multiple browser windows are not supported by Selenium Grid or external cloud providers such as Sauce Labs and Browserstack.
