Could you advise how can I select window by name, which is contained in variable?

Name of window generates ramdom and this value exists in my ${addressId} variable.

I tried to use:

Select Window    ${addressId}

but it doesn't work. I have got NoSuchWindowException. Any ideas how to switch windows?

  • how is the name genereated? Are you certain that this generated name is something that the select window will accept (title, name, url, etc)? Commented Sep 11, 2017 at 14:07
  • yep. it is a string with id, which is a title of window Commented Sep 15, 2017 at 7:31

The way you are doing it is correct. The logical explanation is that ${addressId} doesn't match any window titles. You can use Get window titles in your test to see what robot thinks the window titles are, and then you can log ${addressId} to see if it matches any of them.
