Issue with verify showing same values but showing as failed


#1

I am running a test and I keep getting an error that the text values don’t match when they actually do.

Here is the line of code:
WebUI.verifyEqual(WebUI.getText(findTestObject(‘Object Repository/Page_MyLicense Office -admin/FeeStatusUnpaid’)),’ Unpaid’)

Here is the error:
06-11-2019 11:18:52 AM verifyEqual(getText(findTestObject(“Object Repository/Page_MyLicense Office -admin/FeeStatusUnpaid”)), " Unpaid")

Elapsed time: 0.081s

Unable to verify equal between actual object ’ Unpaid’ and expected object ’ Unpaid’ (Root cause: com.kms.katalon.core.exception.StepFailedException: Actual object ’ Unpaid’ and expected object ’ Unpaid’ are not equal

#2

This may be a bug in Katalon’s keyword, but to test it, try executing this code:

assert WebUI.getText(findTestObject(“Page_MyLicense Office -admin/FeeStatusUnpaid”)).equals(“ Unpaid”)

(Nice profile pic btw :sunglasses:)


#3

that worked. thank you sir.

should I put this in as a bug then because other verifyequal work? very strange

thanks for the profile pic compliment. :slight_smile:

good to know there are other fans out here


#4

No need, I will move it for you. At least you have a workaround for now :slight_smile:
