How to handle a dialogue box


I have a test scenario in which i have to click on a print icon in a web page. A new window will appear for printing. However I dont want to perform actual printing, i want to close the newly opened print window. After closing only I will be able to work on the initial page. I have tried switch to window index, close window index, but its not closing the print page. I have tried Alert option also, but that too didnt work. Pages are as showed below.

Main page

print page


Here are the codes I tried:

Please help.

give katalon recorder a try and look what the utility records as steps. maybe this helps.

Hello @masdesign,

I gave it a try, but nothing recorded for closing the dialogue box. It just captured till clicking the print button, after that I closed the newly opened print window, but that step havent recorded.


Any thoughts?


I found a solution. I have tried the Robot.key press after importing the following classes.

import java.awt.Robot;
import java.awt.event.KeyEvent;

Robot robot = new Robot();

// Function+F4 is now pressed

// Function+F4 now released

So by pressing the Alt+F4, the print window got closed. Thanks!!


That’s a nice “hack” with ALT + F4

I share this with my test automaters as well.
