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 radio button is not selected.

In this article, I am going to practically demonstrate assert 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 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 radio button 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=radio1 into the Target box field as shown below:

Note: The locating strategy id=radio1 will locate the radio button 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 radio button option located is in the non-selected state:

assert not checked Selenium IDE - executed

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:

assert not checked Selenium IDE - demo fail

6) Now let’s modify the locating strategy to xpath=//input[@value=’Bicycle’] to find whether the above-stated radio button 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 radio button 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.

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