How to check a checkbox in a page in Selenium with python?

We can check a checkbox in a page in Selenium with the help of click() method. First of all we need to uniquely identify the checkbox with the help of any of the locators like css, xpath, id, class and so on.

Next we have to use findElement() method to locate the element and finally perform the clicking action. The exception will be thrown if there is no matching element found on the page.




Code Implementation for checkbox selection.

from selenium import webdriver
#browser exposes an executable file
#Through Selenium test we will invoke the executable file which will then #invoke actual browser
driver = webdriver.Chrome(executable_path="C:\chromedriver.exe")
# to maximize the browser window
#get method to launch the URL
#to refresh the browser
# identifying the checkbox with xpath, then click
driver.find_element_by_xpath("//input[@value='Automation Tester']")
#to close the browser
