I'm using selenium web driver in a java swings application to open a web page in single tab but when i'm closing the browser manually i'm not getting any event of it and its not working for me.Is there a way to get the browser closing event in selenium ?

Answer Source

I solved it by capturing the exception,i was getting when i was closing the browser manually and then try to close it again at the close of my application. From that catch block only i'm reopening the browser by instantiating the web driver again.

catch (Exception _e) {

                log.error(_e);
                System.out.println("Browser already closed");
    //launching the web browser again
                String path="";

            if(browserName.contains("chrome")){
                try {
                    path = System.getProperty("user.dir")+"\\BrowserExeFiles\\chromedriver.exe";
                    OpenURL.driver = new ChromeDriver();
                } catch (Exception e) {
                    e.printStackTrace();
                }
            }
            else if(browserName.contains("ie")){
                try{
                    path=System.getProperty("user.dir")+"\\BrowserExeFiles/ie.exe";
                    OpenURL.driver = new InternetExplorerDriver();
                } catch (Exception e) {
                    e.printStackTrace();
                }
            }
            else if(browserName.contains("firefox")){
                String firefox_Path = getFirfoxPath();
            File pathToBinary = new File(firefox_Path);
            FirefoxBinary ffBinary = new FirefoxBinary(pathToBinary);
            FirefoxProfile firefoxProfile = new FirefoxProfile();       
            driver = new FirefoxDriver(ffBinary,firefoxProfile);
            }

        }
driver.get(urlString);
driver.manage().window().maximize();
driver.manage().deleteAllCookies();
}
