I am not able to click the checkbox, I tried some XPath and CSS and id but I am not able to click on the checkbox

HTML Code:

<div class="row">
<table id="orderNoDropdown" class="table table-hover dataTable" aria-describedby="orderNoDropdown_info">
<thead>
<tr role="row">
<th class="checkBoxTh sorting_disabled" role="columnheader" rowspan="1" colspan="1">
<div class="checkbox checkbox-primary" style="float: right;">
<input id="thCheckBox" class="checkBox" type="checkbox"/>
<label for="thCheckBox" style="margin-bottom: 19px;"/>
</div>
</th>

XPath:

.//*[@id='orderNoDropdown']/thead/tr/th[1]/div/label

//th/div/label

CSS:

 div.checkbox.checkbox-primary > label

In your examples the problem is that you are searching for the label being the direct descendant of the div by using >

Instead of this you should use ' ' which allos for any other elements at the same level - in this case an input

Generally you don't want to reference layout if possible so I would suggest the following:

XPATH

//input[@id="thCheckBox"]

CSS:

input#thCheckBox

As you have not indicated if other forms and form elements exist. If they do then you would need to add additional identifier to specify this form or this row for data entry, etc.

  • Add an "Explicit wait" to wait for an element to be visible and then use the above xpath to perform the click action.

  • <div id="autofill" class="col-md-2 pull-right" style="margin-right: -46px;"> <label class="col-md-9 control-label read-label">Fill New Qty</label> <div class="col-md-1 checkbox checkbox-primary" style="margin-top: -7px;"> <input id="selectCheckBox" type="checkbox"/> <label for="selectCheckBox"/> </div> May 3, 2018 at 7:01
  • WebDriver wait = new WebDriverWait(driver,20); Element=wait.until(ExpectedConditions.VisibilityofElementlocated(By.Xpath("//input[@id='selectCheckBox']")); Add the above code for Explicit wait then perform the click operation.
