New Selenium IDE – Using ‘verify selected label’ command for checking the selected dropdown option

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

verify selected label is one of the commands in Selenium IDE.

The purpose of verify selected label command in Selenium IDE, is to check whether the given option is selected in the dropdown field using its label text or display text.

Difference between assert selected label and verify selected label commands

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

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

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

In this article, I am going to practically demonstrate verify selected label command in Selenium IDE  to check whether the given option is selected in the dropdown filed as shown below:

Note: The display text of the given option as shown below to check whether the said option is selected in the dropdown field.

Let’s get started.

New Selenium IDE – Using ‘verify selected label’ command for checking the selected dropdown option

Follow the below steps for practicing verify selected label 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 selected label’ to the Command box field, enter the id locating strategy id=drop1 into the Target box field, and enter ‘Older Newsletters’ label text into the Value field as shown below:

Note: The locating strategy id=drop1 is for locating the dropdown field on the http://omayo.blogspot.com/ URL page (Shown at the beginning of the article).

Older Newsletters’ label text is the default selected option ‘Older Newsletters’ in the dropdown field.

4) Click on ‘Run current test’ option and observe that the execution got passed:

verify selected label Selenium IDE - executed

5) We can fail the test by giving the option that is not currently selected in the dropdown field as shown below:

verify selected label Selenium IDE - fail

 

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

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