Unable to verifyElementChecked

Hello guys,

For some reason WebUI.verifyElementChecked does not work. Well on same radio button, check method is working and it checks the radio button, but I can’t verify that the element was checked using WebUI.verifyElementChecked()

And here is the error message:

Did you verify visually that WebUI.check is actually checking the radio?

Yes, it does.

What does this do?

attr = WebUI.getAttribute(findTestObject('...'), 'checked')

You can println the value returned or use if(...) on it.

it prints null for some reason.

attr = WebUI.getAttribute(findTestObject('Object Repository/LoginPage/rememberMe_LoginPage'), 'checked')

Result :


Is the element an HTML input element with type="radio" (or checkbox)?

it is a div element

Well that explains everything. The APIs you’re using only work on <input type="checkbox/radio"> elements.

So, I can not use WebUI.verifyElementPresent ? How can I verify that it was checked ?

Yes, you can, but that API does not have anything to do with a checked property.

An HTML div element does not support a checked attribute/property so the WebUI APIs check and verifyElementChecked will not work.

The HTML you are dealing with is doing something “special” to handle the notional checked state. Without knowing what it’s doing, I can’t advise. Perhaps you could post more of the HTML so I can see it.


Thank you @Russ_Thomas, I will provide more HTML.
