  • Just locate (take an XPath for) the Close button and click on it. Can you provide us the HTML code for Close button. Oct 3, 2018 at 12:28
  • It is a part of DOM and HTML code for the close button is <button class="action-close" type="button" data-role="action"><span>X</span></button>. I have tried to close the popup using x-path. But it's not working

I think there are two things you could try here

Alert alert = driver.switchTo().alert();

My other theory is that if you have tried to dismiss it manually through finding an ID for the X in the corner and trying to click it, you may have to wait until the element is clickable.

WebElement element = driver.findElement(By.xpath);
if (element.isDisplayed() && element.isEnabled()) {

    The issue is solved. It is not an alert. Your second suggestion is the solution for that. Thanks Jack
