CheckBoxes and Radio Buttons

Checking Radio Buttons

Radio buttons are an example of web elements which can be used to make some kind of selections in a web page. The crux of handling a radio button is a method called is_selected( ), which checks if an option is selected or not. We can use to verify if a radio button or even a check box is selected or not , and then we can use the result to process further events.

Here we’re trying to see if the Wednesday radio button is selected. If so, then we’re going to click on the Monday radio button and then take a screenshot.

__author__ = 'rahul'

import unittest
from selenium import webdriver

class MyChkbox(unittest.TestCase):

    def setUp(self):
        self.driver =webdriver.Firefox()

    def test_Chkbox(self):
        driver = self.driver
        driver.maximize_window()
        driver.get('http://openwritings.net/sites/default/files/radio_checkbox.html')

        elewed = driver.find_element_by_xpath("//*[@id='daysofweek']/input[3]")
        elemon = driver.find_element_by_xpath("//*[@id='daysofweek']/input[1]")
        if elewed.is_selected():
            print("Wednesday is selected")
            elemon.click()
            self.assertTrue(elemon.is_selected(), "Monday is selected")
            driver.save_screenshot('/home/rahul/Downloads/chkbox1'
                                   '.png')

        else:
            print("Test failed")

    def tearDown(self):
        self.driver.quit()



if __name__ == '__main__':
    unittest.main()

 

Checking CheckBoxes

Similarly, as with Radio buttons, we can use the is_selected( ) method for check boxes as well.

__author__ = 'rahul'

import unittest
from selenium import webdriver


class MyRadiobtn(unittest.TestCase):

    def setUp(self):
        self.driver = webdriver.Firefox()

    def test_Radiobtn(self):
        driver = self.driver
        driver.maximize_window()
        driver.get('http://openwritings.net/sites/default/files/radio_checkbox.html')


        eleapple= driver.find_element_by_name('apple')
        elebanana= driver.find_element_by_name('orange')
        if eleapple.is_selected():
            eleapple.click()
            elebanana.click()


        driver.save_screenshot('/home/rahul/Downloads/radiobtn1'
                                   '.png')

    def tearDown(self):
        self.driver.quit()



if __name__ == '__main__':
    unittest.main()
