Python click button on alert

I am new to python, but need to modify code created by someone else. I am not able to post the full code, but I posted most of it below:

from bs4 import BeautifulSoup

from gmail import Gmail
from selenium import webdriver

from selenium.common.exceptions import ElementNotVisibleException
from time import sleep
from selenium.common.exceptions import NoAlertPresentException

def soupify(session, url):
    """
    Makes parse-able HTML from any given URL.
    :param session: requests.Session()
    :param url: str
    :return: BeautifulSoup object
    """
    while True:
        try:
            r = session.get(url)
            break
        except Exception as e:
            print(e)
    return BeautifulSoup(r.content, 'html.parser')


def create_http_session():
    """
    Quick little function for returning a requests.Session() instance
    with a properly set User-Agent header.
    :return: requests.Session()
    """
    session = requests.Session()
    session.headers.update({'User-Agent':
                            'Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/58.0.3029.110 Safari/537.36'
                        })
    return session


def retrieve_hidden_input(soup, name):
    return soup.find('input', attrs={
        'type': 'hidden',
        'name': name
    }).get('value')

class AmericanHomesScraper:
    def __init__(self, username, password, testing):
        self.username = username
        self.password = password
        self.testing = testing
        self.chrome_session = webdriver.PhantomJS()
        self.chrome_session.maximize_window()
        self.g = Gmail()
        self.g.login(username, password)
        self.index = 0

                                     sender='[email protected]'):
        self.index += 1
        if self.index % 1000 == 0:
            print('Checking emails - {0}.'.format(datetime.datetime.now()))
        elif self.index == 1:
            print('Checking emails - {0}.'.format(datetime.datetime.now()))
        else:
            pass
        for s in sender:
            messages = self.g.inbox().mail(sender=s,
                                       unread=True)
            for message in messages:
                message.read()
                print(
                'Email from {0}: {1}.'.format(s, datetime.datetime.now()))
                self.check_for_listings()
            self.g.logout()
            self.g = Gmail()
            self.g.login(self.username, self.password)

 def login(self, username, ahsPassword):
    self.ahsPassword = ahsPassword
    self.chrome_session.get('https://www.aaa.com/Login.aspx')
    self.chrome_session.find_element_by_xpath(
        '//*[@id="txtUsername"]'
    ).send_keys(username)
    self.chrome_session.find_element_by_xpath(
        '//*[@id="txtPassword"]'
    ).send_keys(ahsPassword)
    self.chrome_session.find_element_by_xpath(
        '//*[@id="btnSubmit"]'
    ).click()

 def check_for_listings(self):
    #code block
    links = self.chrome_session.find_elements_by_class_name('link-record')
    links = [(link.text, link.get_attribute('href').decode('utf-8'))
             for link in links]
    if len(links) == 0:
        print("No work orders available at {0}".format(
            datetime.datetime.now())
        )
    else:
        for link_text, link_url in links:
            print("Clicking work order {0} at {1}".format(link_text,datetime.datetime.now()))
            self.chrome_session.get(link_url)
            print("Attempting to accept at {0}".format(datetime.datetime.now()))
            try:
                self.chrome_session.find_element_by_xpath("//input[@value='Accept']").click()
                try:
                    WebDriverWait(self.chrome_session, 1).until(EC.alert_is_present)
                    self.chrome_session.switch_to().alert().accept()
                    print("Accepted work order {0} at {1}.".format(link_text,datetime.datetime.now()))
                except:
                    print "no alert"
            except ElementNotVisibleException:
                print("Accept input not found at {0}".format(datetime.datetime.now()))
            self.chrome_session.back()

def main():
    username = raw_input(
        'Please enter the username of the GMail account you want to monitor.\n>')
    password = getpass.getpass(
        'Please enter the password of the GMail account you want to monitor.\n>')
    ahsPassword = getpass.getpass('Please enter the password for ahs. \n>')
    ahs = AmericanHomesScraper(username, password, testing)
    ahs.login(username,ahsPassword)
    print("Starting script")
    while True:
        ahs.check_for_new_emails_from_sender([
            '[email protected]',
            '[email protected]',
        ])


if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()

This correctly finds and clicks the "Accept" input button. After clicking accept, a javascript alert (Ok/Cancel) opens to confirm the acceptance. However, the script does not find the resulting alert. Or, at least it is not able to accept it because the exception is called.

As you can see, I have attempted to switch_to().alert(), but that isn't working.

What am I doing wrong? Thank you so much for your help, I have been working on this for hours.

UPDATE

This code is running on a virtual server and does not use a UI. I just realized that the driver is PhantomJS, not Chrome. So, this is probably why it is failing. I have updated the question to reflect this.

I have tried the suggestions from similar questions, but it isn't working. The 3rd party site requires the alert confirmation to finish the process, but my script cannot see it because it is headless.

A couple of points here :

  • switch_to_alert had been deprecated so we have to mandatory use switch_to().alert()
  • Seems to me a purely timing issue. Hence we need to induce ExplicitWait i.e. WebDriverWait with expected_conditions clause set to alert_is_present as follows :

    from selenium.webdriver.support import expected_conditions as EC
    #code block
    self.chrome_session.find_element_by_xpath("//input[@value='Accept']").click()
    WebDriverWait(self.chrome_session, 10).until(EC.alert_is_present)
    self.chrome_session.switch_to().alert().accept()
    print("Accepted work order {0} at {1}.".format(link_text, datetime.datetime.now()))

I dont know if the below code will help you, at one point I faced the same problem and ended up waiting for an alert and then accepting the alert, worked for me.

from selenium.common.exceptions import NoAlertPresentException,

   def wait_for_alert(self):

        for i in range(50):
            try:
                alert = chrome_session.switch_to.alert
                if alert.text:
                   break
            except NoAlertPresentException:
              pass
            time.sleep(.25)
        else:
            raise NoAlertPresentException("Alert visibility timed out")
    return alert

wait_for_alert().accept()
Answer

Try The Code below! Working Fine for me!

alert = driver.switch_to.alert #This .alert will work For Python
try:
   alert.accept() #If you want to Accept the Alert
except:
   alert.dismiss()  #If  You want to Dismiss the Alert.
