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

assert not checked is one of the commands in Selenium IDE.

The purpose of assert not checked command in Selenium IDE, is to check whether the given checkbox option is not selected.

In this article, I am going to practically demonstrate assert not checked command in Selenium IDE for checking whether the given checkbox option is not selected. I will execute this command to pass the test by checking the below-shown checkbox option:

Note: This command is opposite of assert checked command explained in the previous article.

Let’s get started.

New Selenium IDE – Using ‘assert not checked’ command to check the checkbox option is not selected

Follow the below steps for practicing assert 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:

type Selenium IDE - click Row

3) While the second row is selected in step 2, enter the Selenium IDE command ‘assert not checked’ to the Command box field, enter the id locating strategy id=checkbox2 into the Target box field as shown below:

Note: The locating strategy id=checkbox2 will locate the checkbox option 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:

assert not checked Selenium IDE - run

5) Observe that the assert not checked command in the Selenium IDE will be executed, and the result will be passed as shown below as the checkbox option located is in the non-selected state:

assert not checked Selenium IDE - executed

We have checked that if the required Checkbox option is not selected, then the test will pass.

Now, let’s fail the test by giving a locating strategy of a checkbox option that is in the selected state on the page say id=checkbox1 as shown below:

assert not checked Selenium IDE - demo fail

6) Now let’s modify the locating strategy to id=checkbox1 to find whether the above-stated checkbox option is not selected as shown below:

assert not checked Selenium IDE - type fail

7) Click on ‘Run current test’ option and observe that the assert not checked command in the Selenium IDE will be executed, and the result will be failed as shown below as the checkbox located is in the selected state.

assert not checked Selenium IDE - executed fail

Here concludes the practical demonstration of assert not checked command in Selenium IDE.

Similarly, we can also use the assert not checked Selenium IDE command with radio button options to check whether the required radio button is not selected. I have practically demonstrated the usage of assert not checked command with radio buttons in the below article:

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