Working with Multiple Checkboxes with Safecheck

We have seen working with checkboxes with different examples to select and de-select the checkboxes using selenium webdriver Select class Now in this tutorial we will working with multiple checkboxes.

There are cases were we need to select multiple checkboxes or de-select multiple checkboxes. Below is the sample code to work with multiple checkboxes.

Mouse hover using javaScript Executor

In order to perform a 'mouse hover' action, we need to take the help of Selenium Actions class. Which we have seen earlier Mouse Hover with Actions class

Now in this tutorial, we will see how to perform mouse hover using JavaScript Executor We will look into the below example and understand how it is working.

Introduction to Page Object Model Framework

Page Object Model Framework has now a days become very popular test automation framework in the industry and many companies are using it because of its easy test maintenance and reduces the duplication of code.

The main advantage of Page Object Model is that if the UI changes for any page, it don’t require us to change any tests, we just need to change only the code within the page objects (Only at one place). Many other tools which are using selenium, are following the page object model.

Perform operations on new window

There are cases where we need to open new window and perform operations or there may be cases where after clicking on any button / link, it opens new window and need to perform operations on the new window.

Let us look into such example:

Test case: We need to open '' and click on 'Help Center' link at the bottom which will open new window.
1. Verify the title of the new window
2. Verify text 'Welcome' on the page.
3. Search for a Question with text "Frequently Asked Questions" and verify the result.

Working with Select examples

As we have seen earlier WebDriver’s support classes called “Select”, which provides useful methods for interacting with select options. User can perform operations on a select dropdown and also de-select operation using select methods.

We will now show you how to work with select methods using examples tests. We have created a common resuables which can be used across the tests.

Below is the sample test with three test methods. Each with a different example.

Working with Checkbox using Resuable Methods

Working with checkbox is very simple using webdriver. It is same as click operation. But it is always recommended to check if that is already in selected mode or deselected. Because, if it is already selected and when you click on the same element it will get deselected. We will look into different ways to perform select and de-select operations on checkboxes. We will also use reusable methods to perform the operation in multiple tests.

The below is the simple command to do that:

Configure parallel execution of tests using TestNG selenium

In testing, it is always important to test application in different browsers. We can perform automation on multiple browsers using selenium and testng. If there are more number of tests that need to be executed in parallel on different browsers also, we can do this using testng. And there is an other challenging task such executing tests in different browser versions and also different Operating systems. This can be achieved with Selenium Grid.

Examples with xpath and Css (ID, Name, Text and Links)

In order to perform any operation on the element like click or type into an element, we need to locate that element. It is very simple to locate elements if the HTML DOM has 'id' or 'name' and they are the safest locators to use. As we know it is always better to use ID and Name to locate the elements which will work for sure. You don't need to search for any other locator if there is ID or unique name present in your application.

But with the applications designed using modern JavaScript Frameworks like Angular, React and Vue.js have no proper web elements in DOM.
