getText() optional?

I’m using

WebDriver driver = DriverFactory.getWebDriver()
String AlertText = driver.switchTo().alert().getText()

to handle different alerts that may pop up. However, when there are no alerts, I get an error message saying

[ERROR]  - Test Cases/MyCase FAILED because (of) org.openqa.selenium.NoAlertPresentException: no alert open

How can I make the “getText()” optional?

You will probably want to use the waitForAleryPresent, combined with getAlertText.
I’ve used this piece of code for something similar.


if (elementPresent==true) {
  alertText = WebUI.getAlertText()
  log.logWarning('The title of the alert is:=' + alertText)
    if (alertText=='There was an error retreiving results'){
    log.logError('ERROR: There was an error retrieving results on the Page')
    KeywordUtil.markFailed('ERROR: There was an error retrieving results on the Prospect Page')

Thank you.
