How to select a radio button in a page in Selenium with python?

Selenium Web DriverAutomation TestingSoftware Testing

We can select a radio 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.

Syntax

driver.find_element_by_xpath("//input[@name='radio-button']")

Example

Code Implementation for radio button 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
driver.maximize_window()
#get method to launch the URL
driver.get("https://www.tutorialspoint.com/selenium/selenium_automation_practice.htm")
#to refresh the browser
driver.refresh()
# identifying the radio button with xpath then click
driver.find_element_by_xpath("//input[@value='Female']").click()
#to close the browser
driver.close()
