New Selenium IDE – Using ‘verify checked’ command to check whether the checkbox option is selected

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

verify checked is one of the commands in Selenium IDE.

The purpose of verify checked command in Selenium IDE, is to check whether the given checkbox is in the selected state.

Difference between assert checked and verify checked commands

Though the purpose of assert checked and verify checked commands are same, verify checked command will act as a soft assertion.

If the verify checked command fails in Selenium IDE, the execution won’t stop and the steps which come after the failed verify checked step will be executed.

Whereas if the assert checked command fails during execution, the complete execution will stop there itself and the steps which come after the failed assert checked command won’t be executed.

In this article, I am going to practically demonstrate verify checked command in Selenium IDE for checking whether the given checkbox option is in the selected state as shown below:

Let’s get started.

New Selenium IDE – Using ‘verify checked’ command to check whether the checkbox option is selected

Follow the below steps for practicing verify 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 ‘verify checked’ to the Command box field, enter the id locating strategy id=checkbox1  into the Target box field as shown below:

Note: The locating strategy id=checkbox1 is for locating the checkbox option on the http://omayo.blogspot.com/ URL page (Shown at the beginning of the article).

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

5) Observe that the verify checked command in the Selenium IDE will be executed, and the result will be passed as shown below:

Note: If the located checkbox option is not in the selected state, the verify checked command will be failed as shown below:

Here concludes the practical demonstration of verify checked command in Selenium IDE.

As already explained above, verify checked command when failed won’t stop the complete execution and the steps which come after the verify checked command will be executed. Whereas assert checked command when failed will stop the complete execution and the steps which come after the assert checked command won’t be executed. The below screenshot proves it:

Note: We can also use verify checked command in a similar manner with the radio button. Read the below article for using verify checked command with a radio button:

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