New Selenium IDE – Using ‘verify value’ command

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

verify value is one of the commands in Selenium IDE.

The purpose of verify value command in Selenium IDE, is to check that the value attribute value of the given UI element.

Difference between assert value and verify value commands

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

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

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

In this article, I am going to practically demonstrate verify value command in Selenium IDE for checking the value attribute value of the UI element as shown below:

3) While the second row is selected in step 2, enter the Selenium IDE command ‘verify value’ to the Command box field, enter the XPath locating strategy xpath=//input[@class=’gsc-search-button’]  into the Target box field, and text ‘Search’ into the Value attribute field as shown below:

Note: The locating strategy xpath=//input[@class=’gsc-search-button’] is for locating the Search button on the http://omayo.blogspot.com/ URL page (Shown at the beginning of the article).
