  "parameters": {
  },
  "sessionId": "[sessionId]"
}

Syntax

Parameters

name

This is the command you're passing in. In this case, getWindowHandle.

parameters

This is a wrapper object in which you'll embed other objects to be passed to WebDriver as parameters for the command. In this case, leave it empty.

sessionId

The sessionId value of the session you are targeting.

Return value

A JSON response object containing:

  • sessionId
  • status
  • value: a string representing the window handle.

Remarks

For users of Internet Explorer Developer Channel

The first release of Internet Explorer Developer Channel contained an early preview of our WebDriver functionality. For that release only, all commands had to be wrapped in a command object. In the example below the command object wrapper is in bold:

{

  "command": {

    "name": "[command]",

    "parameters": {},

    "sessionId": "[sessionId]"

  }

}

The command object wrapper is not used in general release versions of Internet Explorer, only the first release of Internet Explorer Developer Channel.
