Unable to close the pop up modal (Note : Pop up modal is application related and not from the browser)

The code should create the task modal and should close the modal. Am not getting any exception or error but the modal window is not closing. Below is the code:

public void addTask() throws Exception {

            driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(50, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
            WebElement titleField =  driver.findElement(By.id("form-task_name"));
            //driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(50, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
            if(titleField.getAttribute("value").isEmpty()) {
                System.out.println("Please enter Title for the task");
                System.out.println("Task has been created");
            driver.findElement(By.className("close")).click(); -> This line is not working

If the pop up is not part of your browser window, it can not be handled by selenium. As selenium is totally developed using JavaScript. JavaScript can not handle such pop ups as it's not a part of browser. So, selenium will not be able to work with it.


You should start using third party tools like Sikuli or AutoIT.
