How can I close multiple browsers when I don't know how many browsers are open and I don't know which supported browsers might be in use?

How can I close multiple browsers when I don't know how many browsers are open and I don't know which supported browsers might be in use?

The following C# function will check all running processes and close any one that corresponds to a supported browser: See below this code for the vb.Net equivalent for use in Silk4Net or in SilkTest Workbench.

using System.Diagnostics;
void closeAllBrowsers() { Process[] procList = Process.GetProcesses(); foreach (Process proc in procList) { if (proc.ProcessName == "chrome" || proc.ProcessName == "iexplore" || proc.ProcessName == "firefox") { try { proc.Kill(); proc.WaitForExit(); // process may have a timeout } catch (System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception c) { // Win32Exception means that the browser is currently closing } catch (Exception e) { // Any other exceptions to be trapped here } } } }

Depending on your application you may or may not have to add code into the exception handlers.

The vb.Net equivalent:

Imports System.Diagnostics
Private Sub closeAllBrowsers()
Dim procList As Process() = Process.GetProcesses()
For Each proc As Process In procList If proc.ProcessName = "chrome" OrElse proc.ProcessName = "iexplore" OrElse proc.ProcessName = "firefox" Then Try
proc.Kill()
proc.WaitForExit() ' Process may have a timeout Catch c As System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception ' Win32Exception means that the browser is currently closing
Catch e As Exception
' Any other exceptions to be trapped here End Try End If Next

End Sub
