Refer the article New Selenium IDE – Commands (Selenese), for the complete list of Selenium IDE commands and their practical demonstrations.
verify not checked is one of the commands in Selenium IDE.
The purpose of verify not checked command in Selenium IDE, is to check whether the given radio button is not selected.
Difference between assert not checked and verify not checked commands
Though the purpose of assert not checked and verify not checked commands are same, verify not checked command will act as a soft assertion.
If the verify not checked command fails in Selenium IDE, the execution won’t stop and the steps which come after the failed verify not checked step will be executed.
Whereas if the assert not checked command fails during execution, the complete execution will stop there itself and the steps which come after the failed assert not checked command won’t be executed.
In this article, I am going to practically demonstrate verify not checked command in Selenium IDE for checking whether the given radio button is not selected. I will execute this command to pass the test by checking the below-shown radio button:
Note: This command is opposite of verify checked command explained in the previous article.
Let’s get started.
New Selenium IDE – Using ‘verify not checked’ command to check the radio button is not selected
Follow the below steps for practicing verify not checked command in Selenium IDE along with me:
1) Execute the open command in Selenium IDE as explained in the previous article: Selenium IDE – open command
2) Now click on the second row in the Selenium IDE’s Test Script Editor Box as shown below:
3) While the second row is selected in step 2, enter the Selenium IDE command ‘verify not checked’ to the Command box field, enter the id locating strategy id=radio1 into the Target box field as shown below:
Note: The locating strategy id=radio1 will locate the radio button which is not selected on the http://omayo.blogspot.com/ URL page (Explained at the beginning of the article).
4) Click on ‘Run current test’ option as shown below:
5) Observe that the verify not checked command in the Selenium IDE will be executed, and the result will be passed as shown below as the radio button option located is in the non-selected state:
We have checked that if the required radio button option is not selected, then the test will pass.
Now, let’s fail the test by giving a locating strategy of a radio button that is in the selected state on the page say xpath=//input[@value=’Bicycle’] as shown below:
Update the Selenium IDE with the above-said requirement to fail the test and run the test to get the below-shown result:
Here concludes the practical demonstration of verify not checked command in Selenium IDE.
As already explained above, verify not checked command when failed won’t stop the complete execution and the steps which come after the verify not checked command will be executed. Whereas assert not checked command when failed will stop the complete execution and the steps which come after the assert not checked command won’t be executed. The below screenshot proves it:
In the next article, I will practically demonstrate another Selenium IDE command.
