assert prompt is one of the commands in Selenium IDE.

The purpose of assert prompt command in Selenium IDE, is to check whether the prompt dialog is displayed during execution.

In this article, I am going to practically demonstrate assert prompt command in Selenium IDE for check whether the prompt dialog is displayed during execution as shown below:

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

Let’s get started.

New Selenium IDE – Using ‘assert prompt’ command for checking whether the prompt dialog is displayed

Follow the below steps for practicing assert prompt 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=prompt into the Target box field as shown below:

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

We are doing this to click on the ‘GetPrompt’ button, which ultimately displays the prompt dialog.

4) Select the step 3 in the Selenium IDE Script Editor box, enter the Selenium IDE command ‘assert prompt’ to the Command box field, enter the text that will be displayed on the prompt dialog i.e. ‘What is your name?’ into the  Target box field as shown below:

Note: We need to use the ‘What is your name?’ text that will be displayed on the prompt dialog to assert the display of prompt dialog (I have shown this ‘What is your name?’ text on the article at the beginning of the article).
