Hi Angrez,

i'd suggest you add a

module FireWatir
include FireWatir::Exception
include HtmlBase
include MozillaBase
...
end

module HtmlBase
include MozillaBase
...
end

module MozillaBase
# Base class for html elements.
...
end

to provide Namespace clashes (i had to do it...)

Best
Paul

Thank you for your work.

Can you provide a PPC version of the jssh-xpi add-on? It took me a night to find out that the plugin only runs on INTEL macs...:-)

Or at last a note that it only works for INTEL macs...

best regards

Michael

hi, Angrez

I just get in touch with the firewatir, could you please tell me where can I get the source of it? And I wonder how to use the 'attach' method like in watir.

Best regards,
zzy

See the unittests for more detail on how to use "attach" method. You can find the source on http://code.google.com/p/firewatir

Did you tried going through the unit test cases for clicking on JS pop up link? or you can try searching through google-groups for watir-general.

HI Angrez,
I have a problem. I am able to attach a JS window that opens and redirect input to it. The window accepts an input and closes itself on the button click. Now inputs are not redirected to original window. Pls help.
@ie1=@ie.attach(:url, "http://125.63.90.43/portal/template/vi_add_booking_ref.vm/action/VIPurchaseDetailsAction/eventsubmit_doperfomoperation/doPerfomoperation")
@ie1.text_field(:name,"bookingRef").set "19"
@ie1.button(:name,"btn1").click
@ie1.close
sleep 5
@ie.select_list(:name,"miscOperations").select("Apply Booking Ref")

Helloo Angrez....

You have done a fantastic job...Thanks for providing such a useful gem..

I have played around little bit this gem..and it seems that it creates a instance of browser window on server side..not client side....so anyhow can I create browser instance on client side...???
