All these actions are performed by Selenium with the help of class selenium.webdriver.common.alert.Alert(driver). It has the methods to extract the text on a particular alert, accepting and dismissing these pop ups of the browser.
Selenium alert methods are listed below −
accept() – This method accepts an alert pop up.
a = Alert(driver) a.accept()
dismiss() – This method dismisses an alert pop up.
a = Alert(driver) a.dismiss()
send_keys(value) – This method keys in text on alert pop up.
a = Alert(driver) a.send_keys("Yes")
text – This method extracts text from the alert pop up.
a = Alert(driver) print(a.text)
switch_to.alert – This method switches focus to alert.
a = driver.switch_to.alert
Code Implementation for extracting text from an alert.
