I am trying to select a field (checkbox), however I am not able to, using code below:

WebElement comboboxElement = driver.findElement(By.xpath("//*[@id=\"chkRANGE_0_2K\"]"));

I've also tried this:

WebElement comboboxElement = driver.findElement(By.id("chkRANGE_2K_5K"));

Select combobox = new Select(comboboxElement);    


<input type="checkbox" value="RANGE_0_2K" id="chkRANGE_0_2K" class="ng-untouched ng-pristine ng-valid xh-highlight">
  • What is the error you're getting? – demouser123 Oct 7 '17 at 3:53

From the above html provided, It is clear that the input tag is of type='checkbox'.

And you are trying to perform actions related to a select tag (like selectByValue) on an input tag of type checkbox.

Actions that can be performed on an checkbox are click() etc..


It is a checkbox how you are able to select it, Select class is used to select value from drop down

Use this code to click on checkbox

WebElement ele= driver.findElement(By.id("chkRANGE_0_2K"));
