    I'm using webaii 2010.3.1421.0 and trying to handle a javascript Confirmdialog. 
    First I used a button element as button and everything worked OK, but I had replace the button with an anchor and the the dialog handling stopped working.

    The result after the change to an anchor is that the dialog popsup but after that nothing happends, the execution stop after the Find and Click statement.
    Tested using Chrome, and it works with this, but when I'm using Firefox or Internet Explorer. When I'm using Chrome my FindByContent stops to work. :(

    The code for handling the ConfirmDialog
    public void ClickAcceptButton(DialogButton clickButton)
        var confirmDialog = new ConfirmDialog(TestContext.ActiveBrowser, clickButton);
        Find.ById<HtmlAnchor>("accept").Click(false); //this was Find.ById<HtmlInputButton>("accept").Click(false);

    <a href='#' id='accept'>
        <span class='button-green'>Accept</span>

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Patrik,

    The code looks right to me for a standard Confirm dialog. Can you show me the JavaScript that launches your confirm dialog? I don't see that in the HTML snippet you posted. How does it get activated?

    You state "the execution stop after the Find and Click statement"... does it actually hang there permanently or does it timeout and error out after the 5 second delay you have coded in your WaitUntilHandled line of code?

    Kind regards,

    Found out that the problem was not related to webaii. I upgraded an addin to visual stuido at the same time I did the change and it was that which caused the error.

    Hi Patrik,

    Can you please let me what exactly you did to fix that issue, since I am also running into similar kind of issue with firefiox.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello Mahendra Kumar,

    Can you provide more detail on the exact error you're getting? Please also include your dialog handling code and the HTML you're testing against. Even better, if the site you're testing is publicly accessible, provide the link so we can run your code for ourselves and see the issue first-hand.
