assertText, verifyText - Selenium IDE
assertText (target, pattern) , verifyText (locator, text)- Selenium IDE command
assertText and verifyText both get the text of an element (as defined by the locator) and check if it meets the requirement of the pattern. This works for any element that contains text.
Assert and verify commands are both useful for verifying condition match or not. The difference is that verify command will verify the condition and if it does not match, it will only show an error message in log area and the macro continues to run. With the assert command, if the condition does not match then it will stop remaining macro execution in the selenium IDE software testing tools.
assertText and verifyText Example
In this short example, we check for the presence of the texts "Welcome" and "Free Web Automation". If "Welcome" is missing, the macro stops since we used assert.
|verifyText||//*[@id="content"]/div/div/h2||Free Web Automation|
