Manoj, Have you looked at the show_active() on Watir::IE? (http://wtr.rubyforge.org/rdoc/classes/Watir/IE.html#M000267) It returns a string that you could easily parse.
Looking at the source (http://wtr.rubyforge.org/rdoc/classes/Watir/IE.src/M000267.html), it looks like it uses document.activeElement to get the object that has focus. I don't know if you would be able to use that to compare to the object that you set focus on or not. Hope this helps, /\/\ark > -----Original Message----- > From: email@example.com [mailto:watir- > gene...@googlegroups.com] On Behalf Of Darryl Brown > Sent: Friday, September 11, 2009 1:04 PM > To: Watir General > Subject: [wtr-general] Re: element focus status > > > Hello Manoj, > > For what you're trying do just put .exist? > > in place of .focus.
