New Selenium IDE – Using ‘else’ command

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

else is one of the commands in Selenium IDE and we need to use it with if and end commands (Refer if and end commands here).

else is the command in Selenium IDE will be executed when the if condition results in false.

The purpose of the if command is to check whether the given condition is true or false. If the condition results in true, the Selenium IDE statements inside the if  block will be executed. If the condition results in false, the Selenium IDE statements inside the else block will be executed.

The else command will work as depicted below:

Let’s get started.

New Selenium IDE – Using ‘else’ command

Follow the below steps for practicing else command in Selenium IDE along with me:

1) Let’s create a test in Selenium IDE for retrieving the title of the page, adding if condition to check whether the retrieved title is equal to the expected title text, else to execute its block when the retrieved title is not equal to the expected title text and printing the result using the below Selenium IDE code:

Command Target Value
open http://omayo.blogspot.com/
store title x
if ${x} === “xyz”
echo Correct title is displayed on the web page
else
echo Wrong title is displayed on the web page
end

After incorporating the commands in the above table, our Selenium IDE should look like below:

else Selenium IDE - typing

2) Click on ‘Run current test’ option and observe that the test got successfully executed and the text ‘wrong title is displayed on the page’ inside the else block is printed in the Log tab as shown below:

Note: Also observe that the if block is skipped from execution.

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