auto switch window


Determine whether TestArchitect automatically switches among window instances.

This setting is dedicated to Generic WebDriver.

Usage of auto switch window

When you open a new window instance and the auto switch window mode is on, the focus will be shifted to the newly opened window instance.

However, when the auto switch window mode is off, the focus will stay in the current window instance. In the event that you want to interact with the newly opened window instance, you are required to explicitly use the switch window built-in action.

Allowable values


Suppose you have the following scenario:

  1. In the Home window, search for a new item, and then click the Search button.

    The Search window is opened in a new browser window with search results.

  2. Switch to the Search window, and perform checkpoint verifications.
