How to test selected value of drop down menu?


#1

Im testing an AngularJS project and using md-menu. Im using assert text to check the selected value on the drop down box but it will pass this step if the value is any value within the drop down, i only want to test against the selected value? any suggestions would be great, thanks.

Have you tried assertSelectedValue or verifySelectedValue?

According to the commands reference, https://docs.katalon.com/display/KD/Selenese+%28Selenium+IDE%29+Commands+Reference , both of these commands “Returns: the selected option value in the specified select drop-down”

I should also add that there are several other assertSelected and verifySelected commands for Id, Index, and Label if the Value command is not what is wanted.

Thanks Mark, i kept getting “[error] Specified element is not a Select (has no option)” This was due to the element having a button inside the menu so no select value was recognised, anyway i used VerifyText and it works well, thanks for your help!
