>>>Example showing how to switch focus on a window:

 

# Here, we are importing all the necessary modules
from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.common.by import By
import time

class SwitchToWindow():

    def test(self):
        baseUrl = "https://letskodeit.teachable.com/pages/practice"
        driver = webdriver.Firefox() # An instance of Firefox browser is created
        driver.maximize_window() #Window is maximized
        driver.get(baseUrl)

        # Find parent handle -> Main Window
        parentHandle = driver.current_window_handle
        print("Parent Handle: " + parentHandle)

        # Find open window button and click it
        driver.find_element(By.ID, "openwindow").click()
        time.sleep(2)

        # Find all handles, there should two handles after clicking open window button
        handles = driver.window_handles

        # Switch to window and search course
        for handle in handles:
            print("Handle: " + handle)
            if handle not in parentHandle:
                driver.switch_to.window(handle)
                print("Switched to window:: " + handle)
                searchBox = driver.find_element(By.ID, "search-courses")
                searchBox.send_keys("python")
                time.sleep(2)
                driver.close()
                break

        # Switch back to the parent handle
        driver.switch_to.window(parentHandle)
        driver.find_element(By.ID, "name").send_keys("Test Successful")






ff = SwitchToWindow()
ff.test()

 


>>>Example showing how to switch focus on a frame inside same page:

# Here, we are importing all the necessary modules
from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.common.by import By
import time

class SwitchToFrame():

    def test(self):
        baseUrl = "https://letskodeit.teachable.com/pages/practice"
        driver = webdriver.Firefox() # An instance of Firefox browser is created
        driver.maximize_window() #Window is maximized
        driver.get(baseUrl)
        driver.execute_script("window.scrollBy(0, 1000);")

        # Switch to frame using Id
        driver.switch_to.frame("courses-iframe")

        # Switch to frame using name
        # driver.switch_to.frame("iframe-name")

        # Switch to frame using numbers
        # driver.switch_to.frame(0)

        time.sleep(2)
        # Search course
        searchBox = driver.find_element(By.ID, "search-courses")
        searchBox.send_keys("python")
        time.sleep(2)

        # Switch back to the parent frame
        driver.switch_to.default_content()
        driver.execute_script("window.scrollBy(0, -1000);")
        time.sleep(2)
        driver.find_element(By.ID, "name").send_keys("Test Successful")




ff = SwitchToFrame()
ff.test()
