Cannot extract info on pop-up form
03/23/15 at 10:14:16
 
Hi,
How can I extract info that appears on the pop up that appears on clicking a link on a page? iRobot does not seem to understand Take Data when the info selected is on a popup form. Or may be it does not recognize a popup.
Thanks

Have you tried to change menu:  
Settings -> Pop up -> Open in Current Browser?

Yes, I did. It didn't work.
Here is the scenario:
1. Go to URL (Opens a list of links)
2. A link like this (After selecting a link partially)
3. A click (Click the link. Opens a webpage that has some text and a list of links (1 to 4 links, arranged horizontally, in one line)
4. A click (Click the first link in the horizontal list of links. Opens a popup that has the info that needs to be extracted)
5 Take data (Which is on the popup)
 
Replacing 3 above with Take data and commenting out 4 also does not work.
Any ideas?
Thanks

You can change the property of action 4, try the "Before each click:" with different options like "do NOT reload page & use URL".  Also try to check "To open in new browser:".

I tried those options. It did not open the popup inside the parent window and ignored the entire data on popup.
I can see the popup opening but I was wondering if there is any browser setting that may restrict access to popup data?
Thanks

By the way, I do not see the option  "To open in new browser:"

The popup page has to be loaded in IRobot's own window.  Otherwise, IRobot will not be able to read it.  
 
The "To open in new browser:" is located just below "Target Query: "

Tried all but no luck! It doesn't extract data on the popup at all.
Thanks
