    After I have tried almost everything I need a help from Telerik to solve or find a valid workaround for the bug in DownloadDialogsHandler.
    The application/test is very very basic and simple. I'm using the latest version of Testing Framework, with IE 11 on Windows7. The browser is enabled to download any file w/out restrictions.
    Here is the code:

    2.string saveLocation = System.IO.Path.Combine("C:\\Users\\Developer\\Downloads", "");
    3.DownloadDialogsHandler handler = new DownloadDialogsHandler(myManager.ActiveBrowser, DialogButton.SAVE, saveLocation, myManager.Desktop);
    4.Element downloadBtn = myManager.ActiveBrowser.Find.ByExpression(new HtmlFindExpression("type=submit", "value=download","name=m"));

    after a certain amount of time, the following exception is raised on line 6:
    Timed out waiting '60000' msec. for any dialog to be handled '1'

    If I specify WaitUntilHandled(20000), obviously the exception is raised after 20s: Timed out waiting '20000' msec. for any dialog to be handled '1'
    In several post Telerik team says that this line is needed, but it raise always an exception, (but the file is correctly downloaded), and the execution is break.

    If I remove it, as it should be from the telerik official documentation, the DownloadDialogHandler is not correctly managed, and it is terminated before having the time to save the file on the local hard disk.

    The file I'm trying to download is around 10KB, so we're talking of extra small files...

    Hello Marco,

    I am sorry to hear that  you are experiencing this issue.

    Unfortunately I don't have access to your application and I can't reproduce this issue against other public websites. 

    Can you try to reproduce this issue with Telerik Testing Framework 2013.2.1417 that you can download from here

    If you still reproduce the same issue, could you please try reproducing the problem against another public application?  This problem reminds me about this bug from our feedback portal, but unfortunately we are still not able to reproduce it locally. 

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Any update to this problem?

    I am using v.2014.4.1326 and experienced the same problem. File saved fine but exception occurred 

    System.TimeoutException: Timed out waiting '15000' msec. for any dialog to be handled '1'


    DownloadDialogsHandler dialog = new DownloadDialogsHandler(Manager.ActiveBrowser, DialogButton.SAVE, @"c:\test.xls", Manager.Desktop);

     //Dialog triggered just before this step

    Using the latest version of Test Studio I was not able to reproduce this behavior, make sure you upgrade to the latest and give it a try.

    If you still continue experiencing the behavior provide the test with access to the application so we can take a look.
