How to check or uncheck the checkbox with IE8

Post by seli on Thu Jun 14, 2012 9:04 pm

Hi all,
I have an issue when checking a checkbox with IE 8 by using InternetExplorerDriver: When I try clicking
the checkbox, the checkbox doesn't checked. The same code is working perfectly with FF3.6.
I know that IE Driver doesn't support cssSelector yet so I do not use css.

I have tried the followings:

driver.findElement(By.xpath("//input[@name='...' and @value='...']") ).click();
and much more, but without any results
The part of HTML is:


<div class="input inputLevel3">
<label><input type="checkbox" value="yes" name="TPCActivate"><span id="XSLtpca0006">Activated</span></label>

I’m really stuck on this problem.
Please for your help.

Hi Seli,

Click works fine to check the checkbox in IE8.
Just debug the code and confirm if it finds the element correctly before clicking in IE8?

Hi Seli,
In case one alternate solution can be as below

String currChkboxValue = checkbox.getAttribute("checked");
if(currChkboxValue==null || "false".equalsIgnoreCase(currChkboxValue))
if(checkbox instanceof InternetExplorerElement)
