I need to check a checkbox, but am not able to do that. It's giving the error: Element is not visible

This is the element:

<input _ngcontent-c5="" class="lb-checkbox ng-untouched ng-pristine ng-valid" type="checkbox" id="1" ng-reflect-model="false">
::after </input>

And this is the code I tried:

    First of all you shouldn't try to manipulate an element that isn't visible since it doesn't represent user behaviour. If you really want to do it try ((JavascriptExecutor)driver).executeScript("arguments[0].click()", yourWebElement); but like I said, I'd recommend to go for a whatever triggers the hidden element instead. – Daniel May 15 '18 at 12:30

    Exactly what @godisalie92 says: why do you think that performing action which user cannot do will make a valid e2e test? What you want to accomplish? – Peter M. - stands for Monica May 15 '18 at 13:51

First verify the checkbox is already selected or not by using the if condition. Use this below code

boolean iconEnabled = driver.findElement(By.id("1")).isEnabled();

if(iconEnabled == true)

    WebElement checkbox = driver.findElement(By.id("1"));

You can use JavascriptExecutor to change the display attribute to make the element visible then perform the click.

JavascriptExecutor executor4= (JavascriptExecutor)driver;        

Above code make the checkbox visible so you can click on it.
