This tab is playing audio is added to the end of the tab title. You can check it in the Object Browser. So, you can use the script below to identify whether the music is playing on the specified tab:



    function TestAudioIndicatorInChrome()


     // change <TAB TITLE> in the line below 

      var tabObj = Sys.Browser("chrome").BrowserWindow(0).Client("Google Chrome").

         Client(1).Client(0).TabList(0).PageTab("<TAB TITLE>");

      var tabTitle = tabObj.Description;

      var strPlay = "This tab is playing audio";

      var Res = aqString.Find(tabTitle, strPlay);

      if ( Res != -1 ) 

        Log.Message("The music is playing")


        Log.Message("The music isn't playing")




    How does it work for you?
