First of all, you are probably not switching to the correct window. You are iterating all windows and switching to the first one which could be your main window.

If the pop-up window is created by window.createPopup() then you will not be able to switch to it – such windows are not supported by Selenium 2. There’s some progress in implementing it – see


I notice that the id you’re searching for is “ButtonCancle”. There’s a misspelling there. Is it possible that you should be looking for “ButtonCancel”?
