Using Selenium WebDriver with C# in VS 2010, I compiled a document using automation and then I want to save the file on my desktop. During automation a new window is popping up to "save or open file". Is there any code available in C# Selenium to manipulate this dialog popup?

  • The simple answer is no, but there are workarounds such as Alexey's answer below, or using different application automation frameworks to handle the prompts.

Use profile setting for browsers:


Browser initialize

FirefoxProfile profile = new FirefoxProfile();
IWebDriver webDriver = new FirefoxDriver(profile);
  • Can you give provide more detailed answer Thanks in advance
