New Selenium IDE – Using ‘verify not editable’ command to check whether the target field is not editable

Refer the article New Selenium IDE – Commands (Selenese), for the complete list of Selenium IDE commands and their practical demonstrations.

verify not editable is one of the commands in Selenium IDE.

The purpose of verify not editable command in Selenium IDE, is to check whether the given field is in an editable state.

Difference between assert not editable and verify not editable commands

Though the purpose of assert not editable and verify not editable commands are same, verify not editable command will act as a soft assertion.

If the verify not editable command fails in Selenium IDE, the execution won’t stop and the steps which come after the failed verify not editable step will be executed.

Whereas if the assert not editable command fails during execution, the complete execution will stop there itself and the steps which come after the failed assert not editable command won’t be executed.

In this article, I am going to practically demonstrate verify not editable command in Selenium IDE for checking whether the given field is in the non-editable state as shown below:

Let’s get started.

New Selenium IDE – Using ‘verify not editable’ command to check whether the target field is not editable

Follow the below steps for practicing verify not editable 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:

type Selenium IDE - click Row

3) While the second row is selected in step 2, enter the Selenium IDE command ‘verify not editable’ to the Command box field, enter the name locating strategy id=rotb into the Target box field as shown below:

Note: The locating strategy id=rotb is for locating the text field that is in the non-editable state on the http://omayo.blogspot.com/ URL page (Shown at the beginning of the article).

6) Till now we have checked that the required text field is in the non-editable state (i.e. You cannot write text into it). If the required field is in the editable state, then you will get a failure message as shown below:

Here concludes the practical demonstration of verify not editable command in Selenium IDE.

As already explained above, verify not editable command when failed won’t stop the complete execution and the steps which come after the verify not editable command will be executed. Whereas assert not editable command when failed will stop the complete execution and the steps which come after the assert not editable command won’t be executed. The below screenshot proves it:
