RE: Help with ecommerce website and pop which says ‘Go to Checkout’ or ‘Continue Shopping’

Hi all.

I am new to all this. On the eCommerce website where I am assuming a pop up box appears which says ‘Go to Checkout’ or ‘Continue Shopping’ I cant get my tests to get pass this.

Is this JavaScript or a simple alert? Which locator do I use and how do I drive the web-driver to get pass this?

Are there answers for the eCommerce website somewhere?

Any help appreciated.

Hi Virender,

Apologies. Please find some more info.  When i inspect the element this is the code it points me to. I also attach what I have in my code below where essentially when trying to click on the go to checkout button it is failing. Base URL is http://store.demoqa.com/. Any help greatly appreciated.

<div class=”popup” style=”display: block;”></div>
<div id=”fancy_notification” class=”group” style=”display: block; position: fixed; left: 50%; top: 50%; margin-left: -185px; margin-top: -75px;”>
<div id=”loading_animation”>
<div id=”fancy_notification_content” class=”group” style=”display: block;”>
<span>You just added “iPhone 5″ to your cart.</span>
<br>
<a class=”go_to_checkout” href=”http://store.demoqa.com/products-page/checkout/”>Go to Checkout</a>
<a class=”continue_shopping” onclick=”jQuery(“#fancy_notification”).css(“display”, “none”); return false;” href=”#”>Continue Shopping</a>
</div>
</div>
</body>

25: driver.find_element(:link_text, “iPhone 5”).click                                                                  (this works)
 26: driver.find_element(:xpath,”//input[@value=’Add To Cart’]”).click                        (this works)
 27: driver.find_element(:link_text, “Go to Checkout”).click                                                  ( fails)
