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

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

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

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

Difference between assert not checked and verify not checked commands

Though the purpose of assert not checked and verify not checked commands are same, verify not checked command will act as a soft assertion.

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

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

In this article, I am going to practically demonstrate verify 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 verify checked command explained in the previous article.

Let’s get started.

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

Follow the below steps for practicing verify 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 ‘verify 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:

verify not checked Selenium IDE - run

5) Observe that the verify 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:

verify not checked Selenium IDE - executed

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

6) 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:

Updated the Selenium IDE as per the above requirement and execute it to fail the test as shown below:

verify not checked Selenium IDE - executedTwo

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

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

Similarly, we can also use the verify 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 verify not checked command with radio buttons in the below article:

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