The following block of code should do, but this is WebDriver not RC. The similar logic should work in RC also.


Code:
//To get the check box with value MY_CHECKBOX_VALUE
WebElement checkBox = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//input[@type = 'checkbox' and @value = '<MY_CHECKBOX_VALUE>']"));

//To select the checkbox
if(checkBox != null)
checkBox.click();

Hi,
the above mention solution driver.findElement(By.xpath("//input[@type='checkbox' and @value='my_checkbox_value']")) will work if html code like below

<td>
<input id="someDynamicId" type="checkbox" .....>mycheckbox
</td>

but hovewer my actual html source  is something like below
--------
<table id="someid">
<tr>
<td>
<input id="someDynamicId" type="checkbox" .....>
</td>
<td>mycheckbox</td>
</tr>
</table>

Please suggest

Hi,
i have done following steps and its worked
1.read all the check box id's in web page like below
 int checkboxCount = selenium.getXpathCount("//input[@type='checkbox']").intValue();
              String checkBoxIds[]=new String[checkboxCount];
for (int i = 1; i < checkboxCount + 1; i++) {
            System.out.println(selenium.getAttribute("//body/descendant::input[@type='checkbox'][" + i + "]@id"));
            if (selenium.getAttribute("//body/descendant::input[@type='checkbox'][" + i + "]@id").startsWith("check")) {
                checkBoxIds[i-1]=selenium.getAttribute("//body/descendant::input[@type='checkbox'][" + i + "]@id");
            }
            
        }
            
        }

2.Iterate all the rows in the table and select the check box whose lable is matched with the requirement
    Number num =selenium.getXpathCount("//html/body/div/div[1]/table[1]/tbody/tr[2]/td[2]/div[1]/div[4]/div[3]/table/tbody[2]/tr/");
            int i= num.intValue();
            for (int j = 1; j <i+1; j++) {
                      if (selenium.getText("//html/body/div/div[1]/table[1]/tbody/tr[2]/td[2]/div[1]/div[4]/div[3]/table/tbody[2]/tr["+j+"]/td[4]").equals(messageToDelete)) {
                           selenium.check("//input[@id='"+checkBoxIds[j-1]+"']");
                   }
            }
            selenium.click("id_of_target");

Thanks,
