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

assert confirmation is one of the commands in Selenium IDE.

The purpose of assert confirmation command in Selenium IDE, is to check whether the required confirmation dialog is displayed on the page.

In this article, I am going to practically demonstrate assert confirmation command in Selenium IDE for checking whether the required confirmation dialog is displayed on the page as shown below:

assert confirmation - demo

Note: As shown in the above screenshot, the confirmation dialog has ‘OK’ and ‘Cancel’ buttons.

Let’s get started.

New Selenium IDE – Using ‘assert confirmation’ command to check whether the confirmation dialog is displayed

Follow the below steps for practicing assert confirmation 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 ‘click’ to the Command box field, enter the id locating strategy id=confirm into the Target box field as shown below:

Note: The locating strategy id=confirm is for locating the ‘GetConfirmation’ button on the http://omayo.blogspot.com/ URL page (Shown at the beginning of the article).

We are doing this to click on the ‘GetConfirmation’ button to display the confirmation dialog.

4) Select the step 3 in the Selenium IDE Script Editor box, enter the Selenium IDE command ‘assert confirm’ to the Command box field, enter the text that will be displayed on the confirmation dialog i.e. ‘Press OK to confirm’ into the  Target box field as shown below:

Note: We need to use the ‘Press OK to confirm’ text that will be displayed on the confirmation dialog to assert the display of confirmation dialog (I have shown this ‘Press OK to confirm’ text on the article at the beginning of the article).

5) Click on ‘Run current test’ option as shown below:

assert confirmation - run

6) Observe that the assert confirmation command in the Selenium IDE will be executed, and the result will be passed as shown below as the confirmation dialog with the text ‘Press OK to confirm’ will be displayed as expected:

assert confirmation - executed

We have checked that the required confirmation dialog with text ‘Press OK to confirm’ is displayed.

Here concludes the practical demonstration of assert confirmation command in Selenium IDE.

In the next article, I will practically demonstrate another Selenium IDE command.
