This node allows interacting with JavaScript-based alert, confirm, and prompt dialog boxes. When a WebBrowser shows a dialog, these can be dismissed or confirmed. Further, it allows to extract a dialog’s text and send keyboard input to the dialog. The node assumes, that a dialog box is currently shown in the browser window.

For this node to work with Chrome-based browsers or Firefox, you must set the unhandledPromptBehavior capability to ignore, otherwise the alerts will be automatically dismissed without the possibility of any interaction. You can use the predefined “Don’t auto-dismiss alerts” snippet in the Start WebDriver or WebDriver Factory node.

Important: This node cannot be used for HTTP authentication dialogs. In case you need to authenticate this way, you can send the credentials directly through the “Navigate” node. Add username and password to your URL like this: (works with Chrome-based browsers and Firefox). Alternatively have a look at the Authenticate (HTTP Basic) node.
