New Selenium IDE – Using ‘verify title’ command

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

verify title is one of the commands in Selenium IDE.

The purpose of verify title command in Selenium IDE, is to check the title of the current page.

Difference between assert title and verify title commands

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

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

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

In this article, I am going to practically demonstrate verify title command in Selenium IDE for checking the title of the current page as shown below:
